Controlled detonation for real big WWII bomb found in Munich
A bomb disposal team has detonated an American bomb left over from World War II found in the German city of Munich.
The detonation happened shortly before 22:00 local time (20:00 GMT) in the Schwabing district and was heard across the city, local media report.
Yeah I can attest to it.
There are reports that sparks from the explosion caused the roofs of some neighbouring buildings to catch fire.
Here's a video of the explosion, a 550lb (250kg) device dropped by the Americans. This bomb was hidden for decade under a (now closed and demolished) very popular bar called Schwabinger 7. I knew it well.
