New Haven — A Connecticut veterans group is among the plaintiffs suing the Pentagon on behalf of U.S. Air Force veterans who allege they suffer from health issues related to their cleanup of one of the biggest nuclear accidents in history.

The lawsuit, filed on Tuesday in the U.S. District Court of Connecticut, seeks to compel the Pentagon to release service member records, medical records, environmental records and other information related to the Jan. 17, 1966, accident, in which an Air Force B-52 bomber and refueling plane collided, dropping four hydrogen bombs near Palomares, a small farming village on the Spanish coast. Two of the four dropped hydrogen bombs broke open, releasing plutonium over the Spanish countryside.

​Vietnam Veterans of America, the Connecticut State Council of Vietnam Veterans of America and Air Force veteran Anthony D. Maloni, 72, of Agawam, Mass., are the plaintiffs in the suit.  Air Force veterans involved in 1966 nuclear cleanup sue Pentagon
