I consider the picture to be a composite that someone is attempting to pass-off as ironic humour. Incidently, the military reference with the 'toy stripes' on the boy's shirt are for a US Army
Sergeant First Class (just being pedantic- so his parents weren't USAF, the lead post-1947 formation for testing). I am also very suspicious of the scale of the cloud and updraft when bracketed by the mountains as the backdrop- the cloud stem and spread all look like a much-bigger image that's been shrunk and pasted.
Something that many readers may be totally unaware of is one of the USAF's 'broken spear' incidents (ie lost nuclear weapons)
The 1966 Palomares B-52 crash or Palomares incident occurred on January 17, 1966, when a B-52G bomber of the USAF Strategic Air Command collided with a KC-135 tanker during mid-air refuelling at 31,000 feet (9,450 m) over the Mediterranean Sea, off the coast of Spain.
. A rather curious tale.
As another interesting piece of information (disinformation?), I also bring readers of this topic's attention to the later mysterious Vela Incident
The Vela Incident (sometimes referred to as the South Atlantic Flash) was an unidentified "double flash" of light that was detected by an American Vela Hotel satellite on September 22, 1979.
All extremely ambiguous, and (to my mind) unreported- not that anyone should set huge faith in Wiki, but intriging none the less.
