In October 2004 the detonation of a buried 250 kg aircraft bomb occurred during earthworks on the site of the power plant Linz-Mitte in Austria.
The district heating power plant is located in a distance of approx. 120 to 200 m to the location of detonation. The bomb crater had a depth of approx. 5 m and a diameter of approx. 15 m. Construction equipment that was located in the area of the bomb crater and some meters next to it were severely damaged and overturned from the detonation.
