He goes outside to look at the plane and notices a sign reading 'atom city' and recalls reading an article in the paper about a mock city constructed by scientists in order to gauge the devastation of the atom bomb and realizes that the people he saw must be dummies. He looks up at the plane, and sees a small object drop from the bombbay doors.
