WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- The Pentagon disclosed that there was a secret program that investigates UFO sightings.
- The program was terminated in 2012 due to other budget priorities.
- A UFO sighting witnessed by a retired navy pilot confirmed the existence of entities beyond our world.
Retired Cmdr. David Fravor was a Navy pilot for 18 years. On Nov. 14, 2004, he witnessed an out-of-this-world phenomenon during a routine training mission.
“I can tell you, I think it was not from this world,” Fravor told ABC News. “I’m not crazy, haven’t been drinking. It was — after 18 years of flying, I’ve seen pretty much about everything that I can see in that realm, and this was nothing close.”
Fravor encountered a 40-foot-long wingless object off the California coast that flew at incredible speeds in an erratic pattern.
“I have never seen anything in my life, in my history of flying that has the performance, the acceleration — keep in mind this thing had no wings,” Fravor added.
He recalled controllers on one of the Navy ships reported seeing things that were dropping out of the sky from 80,000 feet and going “straight back up.”
As they were searching for the object that appeared on the radar, another pilot spotted something. “I was like, ‘Dude, do you see that?'”
“We look down, we see a white disturbance in the water, like something’s under the surface, and the waves are breaking over, but we see next to it, and it’s flying around, and it’s this little white Tic Tac, and it’s moving around — left, right, forward, back, just random,” Fravor said.
The object had no rotor wash of a helicopter or jet wash from a plane, he said.
“As we start to cut across, it rapidly accelerates, climbs past our altitude and disappears,” he said.
They decided to complete the training exercise and were told the object or something similar reappeared.
“And the controller comes up and says, ‘Sir, you’re not going to believe this. That thing is at your half point,’ which is our hold point,” Fravor added. “And I’m like, ‘Oh, great.'”
Aircraft carrier USS Nimitz launched another plane around the same time. Its radar was jammed and was able to pick up the object on an infrared channel.
“He gets close enough to see a couple of objects come out of the bottom, and then all of a sudden it takes off and goes right off the side of the screen and, like, takes off,” Fravor said.
“No aircraft that we know of can fly at those speeds, maneuver like that and looks like that,” ABC News contributor and former Marine Col. Stephen Ganyard said.
Fravor said he cannot explain what they saw that day.
The incident was not investigated further.
