    Default Looks like......

    some Civvie Divers my have found part of the bomb casing from the B-36 Peacemaker that went down in British Columbia in the early 50's.
    It's submerged off of Haida Gwai. Depth unknown, but couldn't be too deep if they were on SCUBA.
    RCN otw to the scene to investigate, probably transporting Clearance Divers from Fleet Diving Unit.

    Default Interesting....

    "In November 2016 a diver reported he had discovered something that looked like a segment of the (non-nuclear) bomb that the co-pilot said they had dumped before the crash."
