At Annapolis naval academy, retired Marine Commander Woodrow Iverson's corps is found in a dumpster by his puzzled friend Vice Admiral C. Clifford Chase, deputy director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who claims to ignore why he was asked to meet 'Woody' there. Woody arrived from billionaire Joanthan Royce's Swiss home to a Washington trade conference on the same plane as Tony's slick dad, who is presumably ruined. The team needs Anrthony Senior's help to investigate Royce's possible involvement with a 'broken arrow', a missing hydrogen bomb. Written by
Did You Know?
The serial number of the missing Mark 15 hydrogen bomb, 47787, is very close to the serial number of the so-called "Tybee bomb", an actual Mark 15 hydrogen bomb lost off the coast of Georgia, USA in 1958 following a mid-air collision between a B-47 bomber and an F-86 fighter. Following the collision, the B-47 jettisoned the bomb, serial number 47782, to avoid the danger of the bomb detonating if the damaged aircraft crashed while attempting to land. Despite numerous searches, the missing bomb has never been found. See more
The B-47 that disappeared in 1956 did not carry a Hydrogen Bomb. The plane was transporting nuclear weapons materials in carrying capsules. This disappearance was considered a Broken Arrow situation because there was no chance of a nuclear detonation. See more
Special Agent Jethro Gibbs
So. you never talked to Iverson on the plane. But you did share a cab into the city.
Anthony DiNozzo Sr
Yeah... I'm beginning to feel like a suspect. I don't expect special treatment because I'm junior's father. And I accept that we will never be friends, Gibbs. But I don't like your tone.
