It sort of looks like an orca with wings. A new navy drone called the Triton is coming to Oak Harbor. 
It has a bulbous white nose, dark underbelly and is loaded with intelligence gear.

Based out of California, the drones will get tactical support from the naval air station on Whidbey Island and fly unmanned spy missions over the ocean for up to 24 hours at a time.

The Whidbey News-Times says the unarmed drones are expected to be in the skies above Oak Harbor by 2016.
