Mystery surrounds fighter jet UFO footage


Posted on Wednesday, 15 November, 2017 | Comment icon 8 comments

Did a US fighter jet track an unknown object ? Image Credit: US Navy
A video allegedly recorded by a fighter jet based on the carrier USS Nimitz has surfaced online recently.
It is claimed that the footage, which was recorded in 2004 around 100 miles from San Diego, shows an unidentified object being pursued by a Super Hornet fighter jet. According to reports, the UFO remained in the vicinity of the USS Nimitz for several hours and climbed to an altitude of 80,000ft.

The story first came to light in 2015 and gained prominence more recently after being referenced by musician Tom DeLonge during his "To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science" announcement.

There actually appear to be two mysteries here - one concerning the events that took place near San Diego and the other being the authenticity of the video footage reportedly connected to it.

Las Vegas author and retired United States Army colonel John B. Alexander believes that the video actually did originate with the US Navy and that the USS Nimitz UFO incident actually happened.

Citing a "very highly placed" source, he told Fox News in an email that "the update is they believe the video to be real, but do not -- do not -- confirm the authenticity."

London researcher Isaac Kol, on the other hand, believes that the footage may have originated on a website run by German film students back in 2007, increasing the likelihood that it has been doctored.

The search for answers remains ongoing.

Speed here is around 250 knots, 20,000 feet altitude, heading north. It shows white hot and black hot on the FLIR, so it is there.. We don't see the entity of the film, so we miss all the 80,000 foot climb etc..things claimed in the article. The abrupt left turn is spectacular, however not really knowing where the film came from, seeing it might have been doctored is really moot to me.

Sigh - TomdeLonge again? He now enjoys the same credibility or less than Jaime Maussan, Steven Greer... For that reason I will also vote to ignore this highly suspect footage with no provenance, and given Tom's reputation for all talk / no walk, added to his desperate money chasing for his new venture (the one where he is guaranteed a salary of $100K a year, funded by donations) - well, let's just say it quacks like a duck. If someone can offer some provenance I'd be happy to look. Until then, I'm not going to waste my time on a snake oiler like delonge.

Well the video showseither Aliens or Bigfoot, the jury is out, but one thing we do know for sure is that the military uses the sameFuzz-o-matic cameras available to the public to record these incidents.

There are stories of fighter jets chasing UFO's all the time. Heck Aron Rogers from the Green bay packers saw it happen right up the road from me. So it's possible its real.

Whether this video is a forgery or indeed fact, consider, for example, both the MiG 25 and 31 are capable of 80 000 ft altitudes and can travel at roughly twice the speed of the Super Hornet. A MiG 25 variant was designed specifically for reconnaissance. And, the military frequently chase off curious interlopers.

I just clicked on the video to watch it and it has been removed.
