Navy Pilot Chad Underwood has described the 'erratic behavior' of the infamous USS Nimitz 'Tic-Tac' UFO.
One of the most intriguing new UFO cases to have come to light in recent years, the USS Nimitz incident, which occurred 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.
Now one of the pilots who encountered the object that day - Chad Underwood - has finally broken his silence on exactly what happened and what he saw during the encounter.
"So, we go out to where our designated training area is," he told New York
"We're not necessarily looking for something, but the Princeton had a specific object that they wanted us to hunt, for lack of a better word. And all of a sudden, I got this blip on my radar."
"The thing that stood out to me the most was how erratic it was behaving. And what I mean by 'erratic' is that its changes in altitude, airspeed, and aspect were just unlike things that I've ever encountered before flying against other air targets."
"It was just behaving in ways that aren't physically normal."
"Because, aircraft, whether they're manned or unmanned, still have to obey the laws of physics. They have to have some source of lift, some source of propulsion. The Tic-Tac was not doing that. It was going from like 50,000 feet to, you know, a hundred feet in like seconds, which is not possible."
Underwood also stated that the object was most certainly not a weather balloon, a cruise missile, a flock of birds or any other type of conventional aircraft that he had ever seen before.
As things stand, the nature and origin of the object he encountered still remains a total mystery.
