THE US Navy has admitted that videos taken by pilots apparently showing encounters with UFOs are real.

Two videos show three encounters between warplanes and what the navy says “are unidentified aerial phenomena”.
One video was taken in 2004 and two in 2015 but were only released earlier this year and show the objects performing manoeuvres not possible using current aviation technology.
The first incident happened over a couple of days in November 2004 but the video footage of the flying object was not revealed to the public until December 2017.
A leaked report from the Pentagon revealed that a supersonic UFO shaped like a Tic Tac sweet had stalked a US Aircraft carrier for days before vanishing into thin air.
Some of the pilots said that the aircraft could make itself invisible as it travelled next to them.
The craft was described by one of the pilots mentioned in the report as “solid white, smooth, with no edges… uniformly coloured with no nacelles, pylons or wings”, and looked like “an elongated egg or Tic Tac”.
Pilots who witnessed the incident reported that they picked up the presence of 8 to 10 objects in their radar equipment.
Then in 2015 a veteran pilot of an F/A – 18 fighter aircraft witnessed a raft of anomalous aerial vehicles during the training exercise off the coast of Jacksonville.
Awestruck by what he had witnessed he said: “There’s a whole fleet of them. Look at that thing, it’s rotating.”
Confirmation that the videos are real came in statements to unexplained phenomenon website The Black Vault.
The Navy designates the objects contained in these videos as unidentified aerial phenomena,” said Joseph Gradisher, spokesperson for the Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Warfare.
“The ‘Unidentified Aerial Phenomena’ terminology is used because it provides the basic descriptor for the sightings/observations of unauthorized/unidentified aircraft/objects that have been observed entering/operating in the airspace of various military-controlled training ranges.”
In June it emerged that top US politicians have been given a secret briefing about the encounters.
A spokeswoman for Senator Mark Warner, the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, confirmed the briefing took place.
“If naval pilots are running into unexplained interference in the air, that’s a safety concern Senator Warner believes we need to get to the bottom of,” Rachel Cohen told Politico.
