WWII-era munitions removed from Bellows driving range

The golfers at the Bellows Air Force Station in Waimanalo encountered a real hazard on the course; several bombs were unearthed.  The Honolulu Star Advertiser reported:

Several World War II-era munitions found buried at Bellows Air Force Station’s golf driving range were removed Tuesday and today, the Air Force said.

The munitions were described as “bombs,” but no details were available from the service as to their size and type.

The Air Force said the area was a former World War II bomb range. Claudia de Leon, an Air Force representative, said the site is being environmentally remediated after it was subsequently used as a clay pigeon shooting range.
