(UP)—A B-20 superfortress Is the only airplane in the world that could effectively carry (he atomic bomb, 104G model, into combat in the opinion of I*t. Col. John F. Moynahan, formerly of the Manhattan project and now with the Army Air Forces. Ill response to n direct question from the United Press, Moynalian said no tests as yet had indicated the bomb in its present state is practclable for use as a projected missile Irom a warship, a guided missile or a rocket, or that it could be carried secretly in small sections and assembled by saboteurs for explosion in enemy strongholdo or cities. Moynalian, whose home Is ir ".Vest Grange, N.

He observed the detonation of the first Bikini bomb from alrpfane \vhich nr-conipanled the Ixjmbcr from Kwajalcln. "Only the 13-29 lias carried to- days bomb in combat," Col.
