One of the pilots involved in the USS Nimitz UFO incident maintains that the object took hostile action.
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.
One of the pilots who was sent out to pursue the mysterious object that day was Commander David Fravor who later described it as "like nothing [he'd] ever seen."
Speaking on a recent podcast hosted by MIT research scientist Lex Fridman, Fravor described in more detail what happened that day during attempts to pursue the object.
He noted that his fellow pilot Chad Underwood had been jammed when he had tried to track it.
"He's telling the radar, 'Stare down the line of sight, whatever is there I want you to grab it and build a trace file on it,' which will tell you where it is, how fast it is and the direction that it's going," he said.
"The radar is smart enough that when the signal comes back if it's been messed with, it will tell you - it will give you indications that it's being jammed... It's being jammed into about every mode you can see... You can tell it's being jammed."
"When you actively jam another platform, that's technically an act of war."
As for the nature and origins of these objects, Fravor remains uncertain.
"I don't like to get into little green men but I don't think we've developed it..." he said. "I think you can hide things for a while. This is a giant leap in technology."
