Navy Pilots Report Frequent UFO Sightings Between 2014 and 2015

Your next door neighbor in the tin hat was right all along… UFOs exist! Conspiracy theories about government agents and military personnel encountering unexplained flying objects have been around since a little green man supposedly first landed in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947, but they’ve never been substantiated by any official military documents which have been made public. That all changes with a new article by the New York Times, which painstakingly documents the explainable experiences of several U.S. Navy pilots. According to the report, ” strange objects, one of them like a spinning top moving against the wind, appeared almost daily from the summer of 2014 to March 2015, high in the skies over the East Coast. Navy pilots reported to their superiors that the objects had no visible engine or infrared exhaust plumes, but that they could reach 30,000 feet and hypersonic speeds.”

According to testimony by Lt. Ryan Graves, a ten year veteran of the Navy, such objects, “would be out there all day,” flying for up to twelve hours at speeds which would deplete the entire gas tank of a human aircraft in just one hour. First, Navy personnel began spotting the objects on recently-upgraded radar equipment, but they soon began having more personal encounters:

“The pilot and his wingman were flying in tandem about 100 feet apart over the Atlantic east of Virginia Beach when something flew between them, right past the cockpit. It looked to the pilot, Lieutenant Graves said, like a sphere encasing a cube.

The incident so spooked the squadron that an aviation flight safety report was filed, Lieutenant Graves said.

The near miss, he and other pilots interviewed said, angered the squadron, and convinced them that the objects were not part of a classified drone program. Government officials would know fighter pilots were training in the area, they reasoned, and would not send drones to get in the way.”

Embedded into the New York Times article are, “videos filmed by Navy pilots show two encounters with flying objects. One was captured by a plane’s camera off the coast of Jacksonville, Fla., on Jan. 20, 2015. That footage, published previously but with little context, shows an object tilting like a spinning top moving against the wind. A pilot refers to a fleet of objects, but no imagery of a fleet was released. The second video was taken a few weeks later.” The U.S. Department of Defense is credited for the videos.
