The start of a one-way trip for a 2,000-pound bomb begins at the
bomb dump and ends somewhere in Germany. Just one of these
bombs, sans fuse or fins, costs Uncle Sam about $410. When it
lands on its target, it will blast a hole 50 feet in diameter and
more than 15 feet deep. USAAF photo dated May 9, 1944.
