Way back, I watched a special on the Atomic bomb prepared and loaded on the Enola Gay.  Interesting was the job one guy had to arm the bomb on the plane.  He had to be precise and was trained well for the job.  It was just that the plane wasn't flying during his training.  The special showed the after affects taken by the planes cameras.  That was devastating.  They said, that blast was equivalent of 15,000 tons of TNT.  People were still dying a year later from the fallout and after effects.
