“Wow, what is that, man? Look at it fly!"
Unidentified flying objects with physics-defying flying abilities were seen repeatedly off the east coast of the United States by Navy pilots between the summer of 2014 to spring 2015. This is according to pilots that witnessed these supersonic objects just above the waves to almost 30,000 feet. They told their superior officers the objects had no visible signs of propulsion or infrared exhaust plumes.
Pilots of the Navy's Super Hornets told the New York Times of their encounters during exercizes between Virgia and the Florida coast.
“These things would be out there all day,” said Lieutenant Ryan Graves, an F/A-18 Super Hornet pilot who has been with the Navy for 10 years and who reported his sightings to the Pentagon and Congress. “Keeping an aircraft in the air requires a significant amount of energy. With the speeds we observed, 12 hours in the air is 11 hours longer than we’d expect.”
The pilots and the Pentagon (who has been slowly declassifying reports of military UFO sightings) won't say the objects are extra-terrestial. They won't give any explanation at all. But many experts and professors say it is more likely to be explained by things like drones or pilots beseiged with too much information. But the Navy has video of the objects. They are described as white oval shaped craft, resembling Tic-Tacs.
Pilot witnesses who flew from the carrier UUS Theordore Roosevelt still can't explain what they saw. The pilots said they started tracking the objects when their old radar systems were replaced with more advanced tech. They originally wrote the objects off as glitches in their systems. Until they saw them with their own eyes.
These airman said
video showed objects accelerating to hypersonic speed, making sudden stops and instantaneous turns — something beyond the physical limits of a human crew.
