Sept. 19 (UPI) -- The U.S. Navy has acknowledged what appear to be unusual flying objects in footage from three separate military videos, saying they show "unidentified aerial phenomena" moving at high speeds.
All three videos were recorded by F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jets -- two in 2015 and one in 2004. The Navy refers to the sightings as UAP, not UFOs.
"The three videos show incursions into our military training ranges by unidentified aerial phenomena," Navy spokesman Joseph Gradisher said in an emailed statement. "The Navy has characterized the observed phenomena as 'unidentified.'"
The 2004 footage, taken from an aircraft assigned to the USS Nimitz, shows an oblong object accelerate out of view of the sensor. In another, an object moves against the wind at high speeds. The last video shows a UAP over water.
The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, a group that examines unidentified objects and alien life, contends the videos were made public through a declassification review process.
The oldest video was released in 2007, but the Navy said it doesn't know how the others were made public.
"These videos are copies of official Navy footage taken by Navy personnel conducting training missions in controlled military airspace," Gradisher said.
Gradisher said the UAP seen in the videos could potentially be drones.
"All of this is about incursions into our training ranges by what we're calling UAPs," Gradisher told The Washington Post. "These incursions cause a hazard to the safety of our aviators and the security of our operators, and that's what the Navy's investigating, these range incursions."
VIDEOS AT LINK.................
I get to use this one again.....
“It looks like a giant....”
At least i know i’m not the only one that acts like a kid here sometimes :)
i never saw that movie before.
it looks like it’s up there with “Gone with the Wind” :)
it was funny
The military is still investigating this one:
In other news, OJ is still looking for the real killer.
just say it’s a stupid “weather balloon” . It’s worked for 70 years...
Radar anomalies or testing new tech.
Cool, maybe this will wake this place up. :)
OK, did you look?
Whatever it is the visitors want, the answer is no.
Would not be surprised if its a Black Project the Navy doesnt know about.
Not radar. Visual and IR .
Maybe the Navy doesnt want to confirm to the ruskies/chicoms that theyve fixed the radar anomalies which produced the sitings so theyre going with UFOs.
They’re only coming here to do the jobs Earth people won’t do.

It put everyone to sleep on that thread too. ;-)
Whatever, still just testing new stuff.
You know, after all these years they really haven’t asked for or imposed on us much.lol
In other news Storm area 51/Alienstock has been canceled.
I can’t remember from these threads... Have you personally seen one yet?
Those idiots finally figured out that hiking through 30-40 miles of desert from the Little Ale'inn to Groom Lake isn't exactly a walk in the park.
Not saying pro or con but what if on another day someone said they believe US stealth fighters and stealth bombers do not exist.
They weren’t tracked on radar coming in.
Anecdotal reports say birds flew away frightened as the purported planes landed and flight suited crew members got out of black craft and went to the base bar for drinks on their time off. What a story. No one will believe it, though. Didn’t show up on radar.
