US Navy DASH (Remote controlled helicopter)

The DASH itself isn’t very significant to being in the museum. Perhaps to show that ‘drones’ (unmanned air vehicles) are not new to the military arsenal.

But what is significant is that the DASH is being displayed with the training version of a B57 Nuclear Depth bomb.

You would have thought that the Smithsonian would have been more sensitive to this after all of the issues they had putting the ‘Enola Gay’ on display.

(the museum isn’t being shy about the DASH being shown with a Nuke. It is described on the info placard for the aircraft)
