The report added that Smyrichinsky browsed the Internet to confirm if what he saw was really the Mark IV bomb.
He told CBC News: "I got a little far from my boat and I found something that I'd never ever seen before. I found the strangest thing I'd ever seen!'" He described the shape as two steel bagels with a cylinder mass moulded around them.
"It resembled, like, a bagel cut in half, and then around the bagel these bolts molded into it". The crew had to leave the plane, so they jettisoned the bomb somewhere over the water, fearing that the TNT alone in the bomb was unsafe enough, even without nuclear material. He says he told his buddies he might have spotted a UFO - and when he told some fishermen about the sighting a few days later, "some old-timer said 'Oh, you might have found that bomb'".
3 dead, 3 injured in stabbing at Newark home
Police have launched an investigation into the stabbing, with detectives and shocked residents now gathered at the scene. Authorities initially reported seven people had been stabbed overall, but they later said there were six victims.
The bomber, which was on a mission to simulate a nuclear strike, was on its way to Carswell Air Force in Texas when its engines caught fire. "While flying over Northern British Columbia they stumbled across the wreckage of the lost bomber in the snow-covered mountains - hundreds of kilometres in the opposite direction from where it was supposed to crash". Five of 17 airmen were killed, and the bomb was said to be detonated over the ocean to keep it out of Soviet hands. "It's really freakish.' And I drew a picture of it, because I didn't have a camera", the diver told the Calgary Sun. Neta also said the Mark IV was a dummy bomb, weighing nearly 11,000 pounds (4,900 kilograms), just like the atomic bomb that was dropped on Nagasaki, Japan, killing 39,000 to 80,000 people.
"And in the middle, there's a great big thing that looks just like what I found". "These pit balls have the explosives in them, and they're quite large, bigger than basketballs".
In a statement, Canada's Department of National Defense said the device Smyrichinsky found did appear to be the dummy B4 weapon. Until then, we won't know if the lost nuke has finally been discovered, but it looks like there's a good chance. Steve Neta of the Canadian Armed Forces told the outlet the discovery does coincide with the area where the plane went down.
