Troops detonate bomb displayed outside a bar

KODIAK, Alaska (WKOW) -- Patrons at an Alaska bar are lucky the World War II relic displayed outside their bar didn't explode.

On Wednesday, troops detonated a 1,263-pound aerial bomb.  Witnesses say it lost some of its boom after 60 years, but it did go out with a bang.

The Kodiak Military History Museum received the explosive from a local resident before putting on display in front of their bar.

The Fort Richardson Explosive Ordnance inspected the bomb determining it still had Dunnite, a highly explosive material.

Fragments of the bomb were kept for display in a history museum.
