Hi all

I have just completed a canoe trip through the north and south channel of the Lady Evelyn river. The most rugged portages I have ever seen and the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen. On our way out we had stopped on an island at the top of sucker gut lake and a very high speed object flew by just above the trees. It scared all of us as it was jet like in sound and definatly man made by the extremely high speed. While we discussed its possible origin, about 30 minutes later it returnd in the opposite direction exactly. like it was on a flight path. Due to its speed we could not identify it at all it was just a flash over our heads.
Has anyone experienced this?

so...an un-identified flying object?

My Dad did on Obabika, it was well into the a.m. and he said he saw lights fly towards and over the lake and then dived into the lake and gone.

What is just above the tree line, 50 meters?

I suspect some kind of military drone testing. I don't know of any other bases other than CFB North Bay and that a long way away.

A couple of friends and I were camped on the north end of Wakimika Lake a few years ago and saw a four engine military plane fly over. It came by twice.

There is a large military training area northwest of North Bay(includes all of Lk. Temagami and Obabika) dating back to the days when there was a fighter squadron in North Bay. The Squadron is long gone but the area is still used occasionaly by the military for training. The US airforce at one time did very low level training flights over the area in B52's, I took off from a remote lake north of Sudbury in 1983 and had a B52 pass a mile in front of me about 300' above the trees!I wasn't expecting that.

i saw a "predator" drone over southern ontario last year. it was not jet-propelled, in fact it was flying very slowly and came over to "look" at us as we walked through the woods- an uncomfortable feeling to say the least!
what you saw sounds more like a cruise missile...
