Navy pilot saw object 'not of this world'

A former Navy pilot has come forward to describe his encounter with a strange object back in 2004.
Mere days after it was revealed that the US government had been funding a secretive UFO investigations program, former squadron leader Cmdr. David Fravor has spoken out about an unidentified object he witnessed during a routine training mission off the coast of California.

The 18-year Navy veteran, whose unit had been sent to investigate, described the object as "tic-tac shaped" and stated that it was around "40 feet long with no wings, just hanging close to the water."

The way it disturbed the water, he noted, was uncharacteristic of any conventional plane or helicopter.

"As I get closer, as my nose is starting to pull back up, it accelerates and it's gone," he told the Washington Post. "Faster than I'd ever seen anything in my life."

"We turn around, say let's go see what's in the water and there's nothing. Just blue water."

Later speaking to ABC News, he said: "I can tell you, I think it was not from this world. I'm not crazy, haven't been drinking. It was - after 18 years of flying, I've seen pretty much about everything that I can see in that realm, and this was nothing close."

In the article it says "At the time of his alleged sighting, he was commander of a 300-member Navy squadron aboard the USS Nimitzknown as Strike Fighter Squadron 41."Remember we aren't enemies. The truth is there whether me or you finds it or not and we should both be working to encounter that. Also you state in the video it was a jet, I don't know. But as you said that video was not the one in the incident. The one from the incident is this youtube clip where you can see it 'accelerate' off at the end. com/watch?v=x8T6PgYrAYI They released an unrelated video just to kind... [More]

maybe this image of a solar eclipse will help did this 'size mash up' just happen out of chance? and humans, on a planet where they have books written "man was made in god's image, apart from beasts, and the beasts were put there to be eaten by man" i just mean if you examine what humans know, is they aren't animals identically another odd characteristic to have one species different. on this planet with an equal sunmoon from earth. anything clicking?

unfortunatelyno--- are you suggesting the sun is the same size as the moon & they are both the same distance away? i'mconfused
Comment icon #457 Posted by dwarf vs grey ufo on 7 May, 2018, 14:07
no, i meant exactly what i said. ".. nearly the exact same size in the sky" The definition of sky is the space and atmosphere we see from the ground. How does them being a certain distance have any relevancy to aliens where as them appearing to be the same size would?

How do you explain that the jet Fravor was in did not have a FLIR? The one you call from the incident is from a plane other than the one Fravor was in. The object does not accelerate off at the end. The plane turns as the magnification is changed from 1x to 2x. It is an illusion. The tictac video as it is known shows a plane as well. It is a distant plane. What article states the quote you gave? Always good to give a reference to quotes. It really doesn't matter who he is. That does not support him having the best vision. He and others eventually got close enough to see the target, at least he... [More]

Yes it is coincidence. You are making a pretend story to fit what is seen. The Moon used to be a lot closer to Earth. Tides in Devonian times were over 20 times bigger than today. As the Moon recedes from the Earth the eclipses will all be annular eclipses. All I see clicking is fantasy

I don't know why he didn't have FLIR it doesn't seem too relevant there is likely some reason. To say what happened in the clip is coming to your own conclusions. You could also say that it's all just an edited clip with a ship photoshopped on. But the story goes that the people who saw that claimed it zoomed off, and they likely have a way of knowing when the FLIR cam zooms in or out. So they would know. Here is link to quote 11th citation. Fravor was contact by Eluziondo and encourage... [More]

The point is that the video you linked to does not match up with Fravor's statement. I stated what is seen in the video. The zoom increases. Are you denying that? Maybe you need to look at the video. The video speaks for itself. People have analyzed the video and have shown that it did not zoom off. The video is the evidence. It tells us quite clearly there is no zoom off. The information in that link does nothing but make an appeal to authority. Is that all there is? Only Fravor, 1 out of 4, thought it was a UFO. The evidence that the Moon was closer is overwhelming. Just because you don't kn... [More]

Need to fix a big mistake on my part. Tides during the Devonian were only 7 times higher, not 20 times as I stated above. Sorry about that mistake. The fossil evidence is very clear that the Moon has been receding at a steady rate from the Earth for hundreds of million of years. The gray claim is nonsense.
