Pentagon releases new report on 'Tic-Tac UFO'

The document goes in to more detail about a strange object that was pursued by two fighter jets back in 2004.
The encounter, which was first reported last year, allegedly took place along the coast of California.

"It takes off like nothing I've ever seen," said David Fravor, a retired Navy pilot who had flown one of the two intercepting jets that day. "One minute it's here, and off it's gone."

Now a new 13-page document, which was obtained by a Las Vegas investigative team led by George Knapp, has offered a full account of the event as well as additional details about the object itself.

Referring to the UFO as an 'Anomalous Aerial Vehicle (AAV)', the report describes how the object descended from around 60,000ft to a mere 50ft within "a matter of seconds". It would also "hover or stay stationary on the radar for a short time and depart at high velocities and turn rates".
The UFO, which had been sighted "three separate times" a few days before it was intercepted, was reportedly capable of "advanced acceleration, aerodynamic and propulsion capability" and "possibly demonstrated the ability to 'cloak' or become invisible to the human eye or human observation."

The report even suggests that the mysterious object had possessed the "highly advanced capability to operate undersea completely undetectable by our most advanced sensors."

"It was obvious there was something out there and the fighters were taking it seriously," it reads.

2004 Nimitz RadarOperator Report on the Tic Tac UFO Event - June 13, 2018 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VWVzaww1eU

What is in that long winded video with nothing to see. It's all talk as far as I went. What I heard is very to me. There were intermittent radar contacts and this operator decides they represent the same object. He gives no explanation as to why he thinks they are the same object. He calls it "that object" yet the rest of the crew don't think it is important.

It's interesting to note...that Trevor, who claims that he was the 2004 radar operator aboard the Nimitz, says he saw a film that day (from people higher up in the Navy command structure)that showed 2004 military jet camera footage of a domed, flat bottom flying saucer and not a tic tack shape. Whether this is all a hoax...remains to be seen.

I did not listen that far into the story. I wonder if an operator such as he was, would have the clearance to see the video. That occurs after 10:30 in the conversation. He mentions it was on SIPRNet whch limits the classification to seret. He suggests that he saw no motion of the object, but that he considered the various radar contacts as being the same object. He admits he has no idea if it was one or more objects. I believe his tagging is the following: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Identification_friend_or_foe The fact that it was placed on SIPRNET suggests this is a secret classificatio... [More]

Why would the ship's air search radar see the object but not the Super Hornet's which is at the scene?

I'm really suspicious of this Trevor (Nimitz radar)guy, becausehe seems to exude an overconfidence of a film he saw that the public has never seen. I mean...he claims to have seen dozens of tic tacs coming down from 80,000 feetto dock with a submerged flying saucer (USO).I just find that a bit overboard in his claims, because he seemed to hedge on the same second question in the interview of whether he really saw that happen in the film.Could they be that lucky enough to catch a scene like that on film? If so...more power to them, but it just soundstoo good to be true. Trevor claims he ... [More]

That's what I thought the Nimitzradar operator said in the interview on the video Isupplied.
