SitRep Op Sandpiper, Day 3.
A short drive due west of Burstall is CFB Suffield [aka Suffer-field] Canadas' largest military training area., and home of Defense Research Establishment Suffield [DRES].
Heres an event for you: A nuke sim, designed to test ventilation systems in hardened buildings, the 500-Ton event called DIAL PACK was conducted on 23 July 1970 at the Defence Research Establishment Suffield (DRES)- an isolated, 1000 square mile area in Alberta, Canada consisting entirely of barren prairie. It was a completely spherical ball of 32.6 pound blocks of cast TNT. The sphere was nearly 27 feet in diameter or almost as tall as a four story building. The lower third was encased in styrofoam to support it.
That and a lot more weird, strange and deadly military stuff goes on that can quite literally, "take your breath away".... [like nerve gas... ]
Never volunteer for temporary duty at DRES!!
