TOSS BOMBING — An F-lOO Super Sabre releases a bomb as it soars upwaM over a target at Eglin
AFB, Fla. The plane will be long gone when the bomb completes its climb then streaks downward on
the target some distance away. It is an effective way to drop an atomic bomb, giving the fighter a
chance to be out of the blast area before the bomb hits. ' (Official Air Force Photo)

Maj. Gen. Winston P. Wilson,
chief of the Guard Bureau’s AF
Division, is quick to point out that
many of these interceptions have
been “dry runs” which were made
