In January 1966 a B-52 bomber collided with a KC-135 tanker over Spain spilling its contents of Mk-28 hydrogen bombs.  Three landed near the village of Palomares, the fourth fell into the ocean.  The non-nuclear explosives in two of them detonated contaminating a 2 square kilometer area with plutonium.

Here is a story of the veterans that got stuck cleaning it up.
