Bombing practice. Answer the following questions

Here's a very strange thing. A beautiful part of the country, where only sea birds and the occasional fishing boat pass, and then the most dangerous warplanes man has invented.
Watch the clip and see if you can answer the questions.

What is special about Garvie island?
Where is it?
What happens to some of the bombs?
Why is a bomb disposal expert's job safer under water? >

  1. -The special about Garvie Island is that It is the unique place in which you can throw bombs in all Europe.
    -It is in the north west in Firth of Forth.
    -Some of the bombs faall on the sea and some of them fell to explote.
    -The last one I didn´t know because they have a really good pronunciation that I don´t understand well.
    But I think that the answer is "Because under water the bombs don´t explote."
