Astonishing Videos of UFOs in Flight Shot by F-18s
The recent report in the New York Times that the U.S. government was investigating UFOs as a possible national security threat revealed some videos by naval aviators that are beyond belief.
Two separate incidents involving F-18s were caught on video by their hi-tech infrared radar and are guaranteed to make the hair on the back of your head stand on end. The first video features conversations between the pilot and weapons officer who both have a hard time comprehending what they are seeing.
The second video shows the radar locking on to the UFO which, after a couple of minutes, moves off so fast that the radar loses its track.
The intelligence officer who headed up the Pentagon program probing UFOs, Luis Elizondo, was interviewed by NPR.
Elizondo tells Morning Edition's Steve Inskeep that Pentagon staff didn't always understand what they saw. Among the mysteries was recently-released footage recorded from the cockpit of a U.S. Navy F/A-18 Super Hornet. In it the pilots can be heard marveling at an object, astonished at its speed and how it seems to rotate, inexplicably, in the air.
"If you're asking my personal opinion from here, look, I've got to be honest with you, I don't know where it's from. But we're pretty sure it's not here," Elizondo says. "Now does that mean it's 'out there'? Whether or not it's Russian or Chinese inside or little green men from Mars or frankly your neighbor's dog, I wanted to purposely steer away from that because I wanted to focus on truly the raw science: what were we seeing and did it pose a threat to national security."
