抄録
There was an inseparable connection between the development of nuclear weapons and the development of strategic bombers during the period from 1945 to 1968.
I discuss the nuclear weapons development competition between the United States of America and the Soviet Union, and clarifies the relationship between nuclear weapons and strategic bombers. And I survey some aircraft accidents that occurred by United States Air Force mission in which B-52 strategic bomber armed with thermonuclear weapons remained on continuous airborne alert, flying routes to points on the Soviet Union border during the period from 1960 to 1968.
Finally, I discuss the necessity of disclosing information and removing each other's suspicion.
