Fight Against Maturity

But The BOOM Part Was Gone.

A Patriot surface-to-air missile has been found in a Florida scrapyard. Workers at the yard, in Ybor City, Tampa, called police to say they’d found a “torpedo”, reports Metro News.

Experts were drafted in from the nearby MacDill Air Force Base, who quickly identified the object as a Patriot. They said that it was harmless, as it was missing its warhead.

MacDill spokesman Lt. Omar Villarreal confirmed that the missile did not contain “the part on top that goes boom”.


Notice the technical term: “…the part on top that goes boom…”
