The New York Times’ UFO articles published at the end of 2017 were the perfectly appropriate amount and the best of all time for that matter. These articles document the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, which is the now-defunct UFO-monitoring project of Pentagon, and Navy pilots’ historical sightings of still-unidentified, mysterious aircraft. They did something that’s not ever done with reporting on UFOs as the U.S. government took them somewhat seriously.
The release of three videos taken by Navy F/A-18 Super Hornets made these reports more interesting. These pieces of footage each showing a blob with no visible means of propulsion maneuvering in ways impossible for the known aircraft and with a voice-over from very confused pilots.
Until today, there’s no explanation as to what these videos captured. The Navy only confirmed just last month that the videos are authentic, and the phenomena depicted/contained in them remain unidentified. According to the Navy, a patrol that was sent out to investigate a sighting earlier on the 14th of November 2004 off the coast of San Diego captured one of the three videos.
Commander David Fravor was the first F/A-18 pilot who encountered the UFO. He described seeing something vast and strange to the New York Times in 2017.
Fravor talks about his encounter for a good two hours, courtesy of Joe Rogan, and his podcast. For the most part, Fravor reiterates the story of his encounter, but there are some extra tidbits in there. In this particular interview, Fravor describes the boiling water beneath the object as if something beneath the surface about the size and shape of Boeing 737. He further suggests a theory that whatever it was underwater might have been communicating with whatever the UFO was.
Fravor also somewhat agrees or at least does not noticeably disagree with documentary filmmaker Jeremy Corbell’s categorization of the UFOs caught in the three videos possessing some non-reactionary field propulsion system.
Fravor also reveals that the craft in the Gimbal video was not alone, with radar picking up a V-formation of other, similar UFOs. According to Corbell, this particular bit of information has never been released to the public before.
