 Headline: US jets dropped bombs on Great Barrier Reef...Article: Oh, you were going to read this? Uh, well it's technically true, I guess

That said I'd like this with the repeat tag since I like the headline

IMHO you can't go wrong with a headline that references "Airplane!".

None of the weapons exploded as two were inert and two were unarmed.

Well I suppose one could argue that technically the reef was "bombed" but in my book if nothing got exploded then nothing got bombed.

It does have a repeat tag and not everyone saw it the first time around.

If nothing else ya got to admit that is a better headline.

the aussies need to get over themselves on this one. the pilots set them down in an area to minimize environmental damage. in the olden days you'd instead have the pilots bragging about dead starfish and such.

I'm not sure what the difference is between inert and unarmed. Does unarmed means it's a 'real' bomb just that it wasn't activated? Can an unarmed bomb still goes off if something hard hits it?

Inert bombs have no explosive filler.  They are basically the same steel casings, but filled with an inert filler to make up the weight.  They are form/fit replacements for the real thing, so they allow realistic, heavyweight training when you are explosive-approved-range limited.

Unarmed implies they were high explosive (real) bombs that were not sent the electrical signal to arm the fuze at release and align the firing train.  When you jettison (vice drop in a standard delivery profile), the system does not send the requisite voltage to the fuze for it to arm.  There are some instances where fuzes can be armed regardless of release method, but that is not a typical way to rig the bombs.  Regardless of all of that, there is still the potential that the sheer force of impact could cause the fuze to fire, but it is not common.
