US Navy ships buzzed by unidentified objects

Government documents have revealed that the USS Nimitz 'Tic-Tac' UFO incident was not an isolated case.
Last year, documentary filmmaker Dave Beaty had been conducting research when he discovered evidence of something remarkable - records of a series of bizarre incidents involving groups of unidentified objects buzzing US Navy destroyers off the coast of California as recently as 2019.

These events were laid bare in documents later obtained by The Drive through the Freedom of Information Act which suggested that 2004's 'Tic-Tac' UFO incident was by no means unique.

According to the reports, the incident, which occurred around 100 miles from Los Angeles, involved multiple vessels including the USS Kidd, USS Rafael Peralta, USS Russell, USS John Finn and the USS Paul Hamilton.

Events began at around 10pm on July 14th when a mystery object - described as a UAV (unidentified aerial vehicle) - appeared near the USS Kidd.
As the other nearby ships were made aware of the situation, other sightings occurred - with one vessel reporting a flashing red light and another reporting a white light hovering over its flight deck.

The following night, the mystery objects returned again, this time in greater numbers.

The sightings continued for three hours - far longer than the operationally capability of most commercially available drones - and none of the crews were able to identify what they were.

Immediately following the incident, a formal investigation was launched that would end up coming to the attention of officials at some of the highest levels of government.

According to the documents however, no conclusive explanation was ever found.

It seems the best thing to do when digesting these sorts of stories is NOT directly come on to the threads here.†

I believe this is space force flexing and trying out new technologies. Radar spoofing and laser holograms. if itís not then yeah... something is going on.

It's the civil aviation term for a drone too.

They wouldn't do anything to something they were communicating with, would they?

No. You might be thinking Unmanned Arial Vehicle - UAV.

I could ask you that considering the self righteous bullying way you are always preaching at someone trying to force them to share your beliefs and opinions, seems getting over ones self is something you should try. If you dont like my posting style by all means place me on ignore, but stop wasting time scolding me. † †

This is strange; the OPA implies that this happened in 2019, but the USS Kidd was decommisioned in the 70's. The other two ships are modern AEGIS destroyers with advanced radar and anti-air missiles.† How come they couldn't track the 'UAV's on their super-sophisticated radar ?† † †

That's exactly what I was thinking.† The OP may have meant UAP.

Probably drones released by alien Tik-Tacs.
