Ground Zero 55 Years Ago Today!

July 19, 1957 these 5 men stood at the Nevada Test Site, "Ground Zero" while the USAF detonated a 2 kiloton nuclear device there...luckily it was 10,000 feet above them!

CBS news story - click to view!

It was the first (and only) test firing of a nuclear tipped MB-1 air to air rocket launched from an F-89 Scorpion jet fighter.

Atom Central clip (click to view)

There were 5 USAF volunteers there to prove it was safe to do such a thing, to quell any fears the public might have of a nuclear battle in the skies above the US. The five volunteers were:

Colonel Sidney Bruce
Major Norman "Bodie" Bodinger
Major John Hughes
Don Lutrel
Lt. Colonel Frank P. Ball

Less than a year later, this same Lt. Col. Frank P. Ball (the officer wearing short sleeves!) would become technical advisor to the Steve Canyon tv show and then a few years later would become Steve Canyon's star Dean Fredericks' son in law.

George Yoshitake, the cameraman, was also there but was not a volunteer.

Be sure to visit ATOM CENTRAL for a nuclear blast from the past (and more info). We want to thank Atom Central's Peter and Jacqueline Kuran for their kindness and generosity in providing aid and assistance to The Steve Canyon Restoration Project. Peter appears in the commentary on the Volume 2 episode OPERATION MUSHROOM, and also has provided NEVER BEFORE SEEN FILM AND SOUND of Col. Ball shot during this nuclear test, which will be seen EXCLUSIVELY on Volume 3 of THE COMPLETE STEVE CANYON ON TV DVD, which is near completion and about to be released! We thank everyone for their ongoing patience, hang in there, it's a comin'!


To read more about The Complete Steve Canyon On TV Volume 3, click here and here (and also check earlier posts elsewhere on our blog).

NOTE that even though domestic and overseas shipping rates have gone up AGAIN recently, we are going to keep the $19.95 (postage-paid) price for the time being. I am certain however that we will have to change pricing for all of our DVDs following the release of Volume 3.

ALSO NOTE that only those that Pre-Order Volume 3 will get the special three volume slipcase (mailed in the same package) for free (as our gift to those who have supported us by pre-ordering)...once we release Volume 3 you will have to order ALL THREE VOLUMES of Steve Canyon as a box-set (which comes in the slipcase)!

Please note that Steve Canyon Volume 3 is almost ready to go to the factory. We will be making an announcement with details forthwith.

 Also note that we have been having trouble with the images on our website, and also trouble with our main email accounts, due to closing their idisk/mobileme online file storage service on June 30th. I have been with them for 12 years and using it for this website for the last 6 years, and now it's just gone and over with and causing us no end of trouble. We have been striving to repair the site and that process is underway. Some of you may remember that it took about a month of my time to fix a similar problem when apple changed one little period in their image addresses a year and a half ago...yet another darnfool thing to suck up my time.

 We have been experiencing a lot of problems all along with V3 over the last 2 years, but it appears the "gremlins" are on the decline.

 I also ask that those of you that have felt inclined to call or write, for whatever reason, just sit tight and be patient. Having to deal with them (good or bad) just slows everything down more than you can imagine and that is something none of us wants.

 Please be patient with us a bit longer.

 It's coming.

 Thank you for your ongoing support and faith.

 John Ellis & Harry Guyton
