The grainy, black-and-white images show what appears to be a thin, cylindrical object flying over the city of Baghdad.
According to reports, the object, which has since been dubbed the 'Baghdad Phantom', was captured on camera over the Iraqi capital by a US Reaper drone back in May 2022.

It was allegedly classed as a UAP (unidentified aerial phenomenon) by the US Air Force due to its peculiar characteristics such as a lack of wings or any obvious means of propulsion.

The images were made public after being leaked to journalists Jeremy Corbell and George Knapp.
"What George and I have uncovered is Reaper drone footage over an active war zone," Corbell told Mail Online. "It shows an anomalous object which has been designated as UAP by our own air force."

"The object appears to have no flight control surfaces, no traditional reactionary propulsion and is cooler than its surrounding environment."

"This isn't your grandma's rocket that we're looking at."

A video of Corbell and Knapp discussing the images in more detail can be viewed below.

Over an active warzone would hint at military.

The air vortex behind the (likely rail gun) projectile proves the object wasn’t relativistically decoupled.   Nice video on YouTube showing the air profile at the rear of a rail gun projectile. During the Hadland advert

Wow, as the decades have gone by and the technology of photography has improved by leaps and bounds... UFO photos haven't improved at all.
