This article is BS. The "Aurora" is a super-top secret plane, even more so than the stealth program. The U.S. gov has never admitted to it so how can Canadian "officials" make a statement about sending it somewhere?!

The U.S. gov has never admitted to it so how can Canadian "officials" make a statement about sending it somewhere?! Its' a P-3 airframe with a niftier electronics suite. I think you're thinking of the Aurora project, which is speculative anyway.

Maybe an underground volcano? But, would it produce black smoke if it's located in the ocean floor?

Sounds like it may have something to do with the diamond mining. Yellowknife is a prime mining location.

Maybe an underground volcano? But, would it produce black smoke if it's located in the ocean floor? Wouldn't a volcano be noticed by seismic sensors?

Due to a horrible clerical error, a marine biologist strapped a small torpedo to an orca whale instead of the critter cam he thought he was using.
