Talk:Mk 101 Lulu
A job here for someone who knows how to do it.
The Titling is wrong and should read as below.
Mk-101 Lulu NDB (Nuclear Depth Bomb)
The military ceased using the archaic expression 'depth charge' aeons ago, and our continued use of it will cause confusion when cross-referencing to other articles using the term NDB. Brian.Burnell 20:15, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
- Also, BEWARE of mistaken references to a Mk-34 Lulu NDB. This confusion arose because some who didn't know, assumed that the NDB used the same ref ID as the warhead, or physics package, which was the W34, as used on many other weapons; hence Mk-34 Lulu is incorrect.

Regarding the above, I was in charge of loading these on S2F aircraft in the period 1961-1963. They were loaded aboard aircraft on the hanger bay level and well secured in the bomb bay, so it is highly unlikely that one would "fall off" an aircraft on the flight deck. Plus, the bomb bay doors would be closed. In addition, there were two steps to arming the device. One on the depth charge, plus arming switches in the cockpit. The former would be armed before closing the bay doors, but the cockpit arming switches would remain off until the time came to drop it. Which would have been long after the aircraft had left the flight deck. I couldn't find the reference given above, so don't know what's there. This is from my experience in actually handling these. (During the time I worked with them they were called "nuclear depth charges".)
