Nuke the Blimps!

Nevada test Site, August 7, 1957. Airships were included in the Plumbbob/Stokes nuclear weapon test to see how close anti-submarine patrol airships could survive a blast after dropping a nuclear depth charge. But, I suspect that the real reason was that by 1957, they were starting to run out of "What can we blow up next?" stuff.
