A nuclear warhead being transported in a convoy with helicopters flying overhead was caught on camera in Great Falls, Montana. The caption of the video uploaded by the person who captured it is “There’s probably no better way to do this than a highly secure convoy. Nonetheless, it’s highly disconcerting.”
The video shows the vehicles traveling on the Montana highway at a steady pace in a tight group. The helicopters are also glimpsed traveling in the sky. It is probable that the nuclear warhead was either leaving Malmstrom Air Force Base or was heading towards it.
The base is located in Great Falls, Cascade County, Montana and is one of the three US Air Force Bases that maintain and operate the Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile. The remaining two bases are located in Louisiana and Wyoming.
