The UFO Phenomenon

Officers were ordered to erase UFO evidence

Former USS Nimitz officers claim that 'unknown individuals' ordered them to hand over all the recordings.
One of the most intriguing new UFO cases to have come to light in recent years, the USS Nimitz incident, which occurred in 2004 during a training exercise approximately 100 miles from San Diego, saw US fighter pilots from the Nimitz Carrier Strike Group encounter an unidentified flying object.

Footage of the UFO was later published in 2017 and subsequently confirmed to be genuine.

But given the circumstances, should there not have been a great deal more evidence ?

Now a growing number of veterans who had served aboard the fleet at the time have described how mysterious individuals had shown up to prevent any such evidence from getting out.

One of the men, Gary Voorhis, recalled how two 'unknown individuals' had turned up on the USS Princeton.
"These two guys show up on a helicopter, which wasn't uncommon, but shortly after they arrived, maybe 20 minutes, I was told by my chain of command to turn over all the data recordings for the AEGIS system," he said.

Another officer, P.J. Hughes, was asked by his commanding officer to hand over all the recently secured hard drives from the E-2 Hawkeye early warning aircraft.

"[The men] were not on the ship earlier, and I didn't see them come on," he said. "We put [the drives] in the bags, he took them, then he and the two anonymous officers left."

Cmdr. David Fravor, who was one of the pilots involved in intercepting the UFO, previously reported that he had obtained tapes of the encounter which later disappeared from his locker.

Someone must have been very keen to ensure that details of the incident were kept under wraps.

Whoever they were, they must have believed that the 'Tic-Tac' UFO was a secret worth hiding.

Again no evidence. Please continue falling for all of the stories people tell.

Interestingly Cmdr. David Fravor said that no 'men in suits' came onto the USS Nimitz. He also said the event wasn't classified and he wasn't told not to say anything. However USS Princeton had been following these objects for two weeks, so it is possible that they were 'shut down' so to speak. If the UFO (which, again, does not mean alien craft) was a non-US aircraft, they technically performed an act of war on the USA when the object jammed radar scans from Cmdr. David Fravor's aircraft (I think it was a Super Hornet, but might not have been, can't remember). However they were in training mo... [More]

Remember to look at the source of the statement "following these objects for two weeks". Isn't that from Kevin Day who Fravor says spews fiction? Also understand that a military is training with the devices it intends to use. They can't put people into situations where they do not understand the tools they are using in a stressful situation such as dealing with an enemy. The mission here was to learn the new devices. After the training missions reports of unknowns went to zero. Looks to me as if the people using them learned how to understand what the devices were telling them.
