A new article by the New York Times – this one hot on the heels of the N.Y. Post’s exclusive scoop from a Pentagon official describing the government’s ongoing investigations into UFOs – reveals a Navy fighter pilot’s encounter with a bizarre UFO and quotes Lt. Ryan Graves, a ten-year Navy veteran and F/A-18 fighter pilot, who said that pilots spotted UFOs “almost daily” over the East Coast in a period lasting from the summer of 2014 until March of the next year.
According to Graves, the pilots said the objects had no visible engines and that their infrared sensors picked up no exhaust fumes, but reached hypersonic velocities and heights of up to 30,000 feet.
The pilots reported the sightings to the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), whose former director Luis Elizondo reported in late 2017 that not only was he sure
“beyond a reasonable doubt” that Earth had been visited by extraterrestrials, but also that some of them also possessed spacecraft that can warp space-time.
Unlike previous reports of UFO sightings, this latest batch is interesting in that these were near-daily multiple encounters recorded over a period of months and that many of the objects were unlike the discs or lights that are often reported by civilian sources.
One object that reportedly flew between two fighter jets was described as a transparent sphere encasing a cube.
Others seemed to spin like tops or have the ability to accelerate, turn, and decelerate in ways that conventional aircraft simply cannot.
“These things would be out there all day,” Lt. Graves told the Times.
“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.”
Graves will appear on The History Channel’s upcoming series Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation, which premieres on May 31st.
