WWII bomb leaves huge crater in German field

A huge crater in the middle of a cornfield in rural Germany is believed to have been the result of a buried World War II bomb. Locals in Limburg say they heard a loud explosion in the middle of the night and woke up to find the 33-foot-wide crater in the isolated field. No one was hurt. Explosives experts believe the shape of the 4-foot-deep crater was almost certainly created by a bomb.

What set it off in the middle of the night after all these years when the decades of plowing and harvesting didn't? Weird.

The brits put a long trigger on that one, just a reminder.

I take it no one told the EOD team they were a few hours late?

Crazy. I bet some farmer feels they cheated death.
