A B-52 Stratofortress takes off from Andersen Air Force Base, Guam,
Nov. 3 armed with four Mk 56 mines. This sortie was the 10th and final
mission of a week-long joint sea mine-laying exercise with the Navy.
The B-52s dropped a total of 96 inert mines on two practice mine fields
that were each three miles long and a mile wide. (U.S. Air Force
