Ooops! Nukes travel to Louisiana!

Here's a story one doesn't see often. From Barbara Starr at CNN:
Six nuclear warheads on cruise missiles were mistakenly carried on a flight from North Dakota to Louisiana last week, prompting a major investigation, military officials have confirmed.
My favorite part of the story?
The crew was unaware that the plane was carrying nuclear weapons, the officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the extraordinary sensitivity and security surrounding the case.

The mistake was discovered after the plane's flight to Louisiana.
Er, they're flying and they don't know they have nukes onboard? That's a gaff...

Reminds me of John Woo's blow-em-up movie, Broken Arrow.

Would this have been a Dull Sword event?
