    Can't imagine why. They aren't actually bombs.

    This is nothing. No damage would have been done as they were dummies or not armed. There are a million bombs on the ocean floor.

    As for recovering them, it could be like trying to find 4 specific needles in a massive haystack spreading out for many miles - a haystack with 10,000 other needles in it. Again, there are unexploded bombs all over the ocean floor.

    An accurate headline would be "US drops bomb-shaped objects in general vicinity of coral reefs."

    But that's not very funny.

    Or more accurately, "Pilots jettison inert training bombs in Ocean while Avoiding Reefs and Preventing a Crash Landing". I suppose the next time an aircraft malfunctions and the pilot has to eject, the headlines will read "US attacks _________ with guided aircraft missile and inserts invading forces by air"

    Their the ones that don't go "boommm".

    They are just inert junk for the coral to build upon.

    IIRC, there's a loading issue with the Harriers where they can't carry a payload at certain total weight/CG combinations during landing. The balance is thrown off to the point where the landing is dangerous.
