Nevada Test Site: "Operation Cue" Test Houses DURING

J. Wallace
This model American town was built in 1955 as part of the Civil Defense "Operation Cue" project. On May 4, 1955, the "Apple 2" blast test was held. The town was comprised of brick, concrete, and frame houses; there was also an RV park and a fuel oil distribution center. As one can see, all of the houses within 5,000 feet of the blast were severely damaged or destroyed. #and #bert #bomb #burt #civil #cold #collapse #Cover #damage #defense #destroy #destruction #Duck #explosion #nuclear #nucular #nuculer #nuke #the #Turtle #usa #war
