Sounds to me like he is mixing up UFOs and aliens. UFO simply means Unidentified Flying Object, and UAP really is a better term, for example what appears to be plasma balls have sometimes been seen (in Hessdalen, Norway for example), they are more phenomena than objects.

Until you are speaking in a very specific context, ufo uap and aliens are used interchangeably and they mean the same.

No, they don't. Just ask the organization UFO Sweden here in Sweden, which are investigating UFOs. They often have to explain to people about just that since it is a common misconception.

UFO doesn't necessarily mean Alien , but people still don't understand that :huh:

UFO never has meant aliens UFO means "unidentified flying object "

Some do get explaned and are no longer UFOs they are prosaic down to earth explanations but never not once has any UFO been proven to be aliens.

That glaring fact is a wicked bad thorn in the side knocker knot for true believers, i cant blame them.

Yep, that fellow rocks although i bet true believers hate him like poison.

"You're telling me there's an alien in front of your airplane, and the best you can do is a fuzzy monochromatic Tic-Tac? Really?"

"And it's in our atmosphere? It's there?!? The plane can see it?!? Really?!?"

Yep, he says it as it is.

OK I get it and I was saying the same in formal and academic settings and for organizations like the one you mentioned UFOs don't mean aliens. But in casual talking, (people talking to each other during lunch) ufo means aliens.
