I don't know about a reactor, but there was a Cs-137 source used to study
this effect at Brookhaven, I think.  I think that this also turned into a
study case in the production of skyshine.

I also remember reading about an experimental reactor in the USA that was
purposelly allowed to go critical while suspended in air, leading to the
death of nearby pine trees.  Does anyone remember the name of that facility?
