US Navy releases pilot UFO incident reports

Newly declassified documents contain specific details of the unidentified objects encountered by US Navy pilots.
Last month the US Department of Defense took the unexpected decision to formally declassify and release three video clips of unidentified objects recorded by US Navy pilots.

Now thanks to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the Naval Safety Center, eight hazard reports providing additional details of these encounters have been finally made public.

Seven of the reports involve F/A-18E/F Super Hornets and detail incidents that took place in 2013 and 2014 off the coast of Virginia and North Carolina in a region known as the W-72 warning area.

The eighth report details a separate incident from 2019 involving an EA-18G Growler.

One of the most interesting aspects of these encounters is that the UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) were fairly small - closer in size to a drone than a manned aircraft.

One of the pilots stated that the object encountered in November 2013 had an "approximately 5 foot wingspan and was colored white with no other distinguishable features."
Another in June 2013 was described as "white in color and approximately the size of a drone or missile." None of the pilots were able to determine who or what was flying the objects.

The Navy however noted that they did "pose a significant mid-air collision threat."

On March 26, 2014, another pilot reported an encounter with a "metallic object" which was "small in size, approximately the size of a suitcase, and silver in color."

He got within 1,000ft of it, but was "unable to positively determine the identity of the aircraft."

As for the nature and origins of these objects - nobody seems to know.

The reports themselves, as well as the analyses, are long and detailed, so to get the complete picture we recommend checking out the full article on - The Drive.

I have provided all of the links, some of the quotes and everything you need to look and see for yourself.  If you're struggling to keep up I can make a nice fluffy summary post for you?

Clearly, you are making up stories and living in a fantasy.

  You rely on the unexplained. But those reports are often so poor they can't  be explained. It's the typical light in the sky report.

I get those all of time. I like to think of them as the idiot bobble heads if they cannot put their thoughts into writing. I tend to get these from extreme left and right wing political radicals.

Thunderf00t, from 20:38 in the above video also shares the opinion that the video and the radar returns are not related.

I recall reading either an email or some piece of documentation between Luis Elizondo and the DOD? through a FOIA request that they were declassified and released to him... I'll dig around and try to find it but my understanding is they were actually released and not leaked. P.S Decent little podcast about the topic by Mick West

Yes this is known, but the videos were not meant for public release, and were only confirmed declassified for public release this year.
