US Navy has more footage of USS Nimitz UFO

We have yet to see everything the US Navy has on the UFO incident. Image Credit: US Navy
It turns out that the US Navy is withholding at least one video pertaining to the infamous 'Tic-Tac' UFO case.
Ever since it was revealed that the Nimitz Carrier Strike Group encountered a fast-moving unidentified flying object 100 miles off San Diego during a training exercise back in 2004, journalists and UFO researchers alike have been digging in an effort to obtain as much information about it as possible.

Footage of the UFO was later published in 2017 and subsequently confirmed to be genuine, however it is believed that there is much more about the incident that the US Navy is keeping under wraps.

Now after years of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), one researcher - Christian Lambright - has finally struck gold (or potential gold at least.)

While most requests for information are simply met with silence, Lambright actually received a response after asking ONI to provide any additional videos or documents about the incident.

In the reply, officials confirmed the existence of such documents, but stated that it was not possible to release them to the public because doing so would cause 'grave damage' to national security.

"We have discovered certain briefing slides that are classified TOP SECRET," the response reads.
"A review of these materials indicates that are currently and appropriate Marked and Classified TOP SECRET under Executive Order 13526, and the Original Classification Authority has determined that the release of these materials would cause exceptionally grave damage to the National Security of the United States."

More promising however, was this additional comment about the existence of more footage:

"We have also determined that ONI possesses a video classified SECRET that ONI is not the Original Classification Authority for. ONI has forwarded your request to Naval Air Systems Command to make a determination on releasability."

So it seems that there is at least one more video of the object, but whether or not we will ever get to see it remains unclear.

As things stand, we'll just have to wait and see if Naval Air Systems Command agrees to release it.

Then on 14 November, Commander David Fravor was flying a mission off the USS Nimitz when he eyeballed the object. It seemed, he later said, to dive below the water, resurface, and speed out of sight when he approached.

So now we get the same old story from a British tabloid. I guess good sources are not of interest, First we get the story from a UFO tabloid that can't get its facts right and then we hop over to a tabloid. Let's go back to Fravor's original recount in the New York Times. let's compare that with these later article. The later article has it all wrong. Seems that these later articles can't get things right even in the slightest.

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — A Navy official says three reported incidents depicting unidentified flying objects (UFOs), including one near San Diego in 2004, are real.

I already pointed that out in my post and that has been related by Fravor since 2017. The article is a rehash article and does not present any new information. Unlike the other two articles this one does not think this has anything to do with anything other than human made devices. Are you just learning about these things? Why are you not showing that you are posting none of your own words and are copying from the links?

Here is another glaring error from these links. It was moving only 30mph.

What's even funnier than mixing up Robert Scheaffer and Jason Covalito is that no reasoning is given to dismiss what either author have written. There is a snippy comment about Covalito and where he may work, but nothing about the material itself. Just childish. Not knowing the source of the material posted is also laughable when someone thinks a company is the USN. The .COM extension should have been a heads up that this was not a site with a .MIL extension. Here is a link to the about page of They are not a spokesman for the military. All Scheaf... [More]
