Test:HA; Date:April 6, 1955;
Site:Nevada Test Site (NTS), Frenchman Flats;
Detonation:Airdrop, altitude - 40,000ft; Yield:3kt; Type:Fission;

   High altitude test conducted during Teapot. Airdrop. This detonation doesn't meet official 100,000ft altitude to be classified as High Altitude officially. Howeer, historical research and data publications still include it in high altitude tests. Which probably is still appropriate.
