Faro, North Carolina
City Limits of Faro, NC

The 1961 broken arrow incident was surely the biggest thing to happen in Faro since the Civil War. The actual crash site is 1.5 miles southwest of Faro on Big Daddy's Road. A four megaton explosion would have resulted in massive destruction all the way to the heart of Goldsboro 12 miles south -- including Seymore Johnson Air Force Base.
