Perhaps someone can tell me how plutonium was released to the
environment at Fort Dix.  The article states that it resulted from  "a
fire inside a missile shelter cracked the shell of a nuclear
anti-aircraft missile and leaked almost 12 ounces of plutonium."

This seems a bit implausible to me unless the US was going to use
nuclear missiles for anti-aircraft weapons.  Talk about bad planning!
Did the US ever have such a scheme?
