Newly released reports have revealed the scale of the phenomenon and the number of incidents that have been documented.
According to documents released through a Freedom of Information Act Request (FOIA) and obtained by The War Zone, there were more than 150 documented incidents involved UAPs (or Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) during the five-year period between 2016 and 2021.

Of the reports, only 35 could be released, while a further 116 remain classified.

The incidents ranged from the obviously innocuous to the highly compelling, with many involving encounters with mysterious drones of unknown origin.

One of the most interesting reports details the case of a drone swarm encountered off the coast of California in 2019 by the USS Paul Hamilton - an Arleigh Burke class destroyer.

"UAS closed to within 500 yds of PHM, repeatedly maneuvering aft to fwd," the report reads. "At 0330L, a UAS (Unmanned Aircraft System) with four white lights and a flashing red light hovered approximately 200 yds above PHM and maneuvered from aft to forward."
"At 0332L, another UAS hovered with no lights approximately 300-500 yds off the bow of PHM and once again shined the bow and bridge with what appeared to be a searchlight or photographic device."

There were also four reports covering separate incidents that occurred either in or near Hong Kong, including the case of the USS Chafee - another Arleigh Burke class destroyer - which encountered two unidentified drones while it sailed into the main port back in 2017.

"One UAS landed on CHAFEE and was secured by ship's force," the report reads.

"The second UAS flew away from the vicinity of the ship."

Exactly who or what was responsible for these incidents - as well as those covered by the vast archive of additional classified, as-yet-unreleased files - continues to remain a total mystery.

It’s an interesting report, but I’m not convinced this isn’t just government coverup or disinformation activities.  After all these decades of UFO reports and “government investigations “ it just seems to me that it’s the government covering up their own tracks with disinformation, as opposed to alien visitors.

Could be secret experimental aircraft that even our own military doesn't know about. They are very compartmentalized even with their own staff when working on secret projects.

Technology has took a giant leap drones are now very common in every form in just about every country. My father was in the Navy during WWII and remote control planes were being used then to fly explosives into other ships. So with the technology the world has now drones are capable of more than you might think.
