The US & UFOs

Postby Dan O'Hagan on Tue 19 Dec 2017, 9:51 am

Surprised to see there's been no mention of this on UKAR this week, but the US has released some remarkable gun-camera film of an object being tracked by F/A-18s:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/world-us-canada-42405205/ufo-spotted-by-us-fighter-jet-pilots-new-footage-reveals

Equally as interesting is the language used by the man who headed up the Pentagon investigation, going as far as to say that what has been seen are physical craft which behave like nothing any nation on earth has:



My own suspicion is that the timing is to take some of the focus off Trump's various on-going "issues", but the footage is quite unlike anything ever released through "official" channels before.

These things have been 'spotted' since the 1940s but I'm still waiting for a photo or piece of film of one that's actually clear and in focus.

I came here for a shoot-out right, a proper shoot-out, with some proper men.

Probably my guess, too, though there's so many "issues" that this distraction will soon fade in the face of some fresh scandal or controversy.

But yeah, I don't recall ever seeing officially-released footage of this nature before.

All a tad convenient that the ‘objects’ were spotted near San Diego.

By the way, I notice that one of your TLAs is a FLA - is that allowed...? :grin:

The pilot of one of the F/A-18F Super Hornets gives an account. See from 1:15.

A remarkable account from the pilot, who one imagines is not prone to misidentifying what he sees with his own eyes from the cockpit.

Quite why the DoD have released this story at this time is the bigger mystery.

If it really was of something of significance, the US military wouldn't have released it. It's also not really a particularly big enough thing to qualify as some kind of distraction. Either way, i'm sure the relevant G-man have cleared it as nothing.

Well if it was beings from another planet they obviously decided it wasn't worth stopping by. Probably a wise choice :grin:

There have been similar things in the past. In 1990 the Belgian's scrambled F-16's to track a large object that had been seen by witnesses on the ground and on radar.

IIRC the F-16 pilots got a radar lock but the thing shot off at incredible speed. The Belgian authorities were quite open about it, but the mystery was never categorically solved.

Various other UFO related documents come out from time to time under the FOI act, and there's some interesting stuff to read if you're open minded. :ninja:

Absolutely a very interesting subject, but I too think that if the US government really believed that there was something extraterrestrial about this object, then they would never release it.

I've no doubt that life exists on other suitable planets orbiting other stars in our galaxy, but the vast distances involved make it impossible to communicate IMHO, that's until they or we manage to invent warp speed! Obviously we haven't yet, and I've not yet seen any plausible evidence to date to prove that we have been visited by extraterrestrial's.
