Charlie was airdropped from a B-50 over Yucca flats and was the 8th NTS shot. A B-17 sample drone caught in the fireball had most of its fabric control surfaces, tires and wiring incinerated, but still managed a good landing. One of the T-33 drones that went into the cloud also got caught and was completely burned up in the fireball.
