Former US Navy pilot David Fravor has revealed a previously undisclosed UFO incident from the 1990s.
By now the story of the 'Tic Tac' UFO spotted by fighter pilots during training exercises off the coast of San Diego in 2004 is well known, with footage reportedly recorded during the incident being declared authentic by US Navy officials as recently as last month.
What isn't so well documented however is another incident that happened a few years beforehand.
In a recent radio interview, former US Navy pilot Commander David Fravor described an encounter experienced in the 1990s by another pilot who was tasked with retrieving BQM aerial target drones and submarine telemetry torpedoes from the water.
The pilot reported a "kind of dark mass coming up from the depths" which quickly disappeared.
"As they hoist the BQM up, he's looking at this thing going, 'What the hell is that?'" said Fravor. "And then it just goes back down underwater. Once they pull the kid and the BQM out of the water, this object descends back into the depths."
According to Fravor, another very similar incident happened a few months later.
"He's out picking up a torpedo, they hook the diver up on the winch, and as they're lowering him down, he sees this big mass," said Fravor. "He goes, 'It's not a submarine'. He's seen submarines before. Once you've seen a submarine you can't confuse it with something else. "
"This big object, kind of circular, is coming up from the depths and he starts screaming through the intercom system to tell them to pull the diver up, and the diver's only a few feet from the water."
"They reverse the winch and the diver's thinking, 'What the hell is going on?' And all of a sudden he said the torpedo just got sucked down underwater, and the object just descended back down into the depths. They never recovered it."
