Videos Released Of US Navy Pilots Encountering A Possible UFO

What a typical F-16 flight would have looked like to the pilots on the monitors

The Department of Defense (DoD) began to declassify the recordings in December 2017 and were released to the public by To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science, a privately funded scientific research group led by NASA advisers and former Central Intelligence Agency employees.

"Oh my gosh dude!" says the weapons system operator. In December, the Defense Department released two declassified videos showing pilots exclaiming over unusual aircraft that seemed to accelerate rapidly with no obvious means of propulsion.

The video, released on March 9, purportedly shows US Air Force aircraft monitoring a UFO off the United States east coast at an altitude of 7,500 metres in 2015.

During a 2015 mission, a camera and sensor aboard a Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet jet tracks a fast-moving object and prompts the pilots to try to lock onto it.

According to a New York Times report in December, the DoD ran a $22 million program dedicated to investigating UFO sightings but it was reportedly shut down in 2012.

TTSA also said that there was no exhaust plume from the object, which would be visible on conventional aircraft filmed in the manner seen in the video. The fighter jets however found nothing.

Yet not enough is being done by the government to investigate these encounters, Mellon contends in the piece.

"There is no Pentagon process for synthesising all the observations the military is making".

Mellon observed that military departments and agencies have instead treated "such incidents as isolated events rather than as part of a pattern requiring serious attention and investigation".

WWE Fastlane: Asuka Officially Challenges Charlotte To A WrestleMania Fight
If he's going to make that turn, a match against a WWE legend on the sport's biggest stage would be the flawless place to do it. The tag-team of " The New Day " was out next to compete against the Tag-team Champions " The Usos " in the title match.

Cmdr. David Fravo, who was piloting an F/A-18 during the 2004 Navy training mission, said, "I have never seen anything in my life that has the performance, the acceleration".

One of the problems hampering development was the stigma associated with conducting research in this field, Mellon observed.

"It is time to set aside taboos regarding "UFOs" and instead listen to our pilots and radar operators".

It is not the first time UFO footage recorded by the military has been declassified.

"Nobody wants to be "the alien guy" in the national security bureaucracy; nobody wants to be ridiculed or sidelined for drawing attention to the issue", he said.

"A truly serious effort would involve, among other things, analysts able to review infrared satellite data, NORAD radar databases, and signals and human intelligence reporting", Mellon wrote in The Washington Post, referring to the radar databases of the North American Aerospace Defense Command.

He questions whether the clip could be "evidence of some alien civilisation" or proof that the U.S. was "technologically leap-frogged by Russian Federation or China".

"We have no idea, because we aren't even seeking answers."

In the wake of the December New York Times story and the release of the freakish videos, reactions were mixed.
