"We do not know what it was": a former US Navy pilot told about the meeting with a UFO

32

In mid-November 2004, the strike group of the aircraft carrier Nimitz prepared for an upcoming deployment off the west coast of the United States. At this time, the specialists of the destroyer USS Princeton discovered several unidentified flying objects, also called anomalous aircraft in the American classification. For some reason, these UFOs circled over the aircraft carrier group.


Command ordered two F / A-18 Super Hornet fighters to investigate areas of the airspace where UFOs were spotted. The planes that took to the skies were piloted by Squadron Commander Dave Favor and Junior Lieutenant Alex Dietrich.

Having risen into the air and approached the place of the appearance of the UFO, the pilots of the marine aviation noticed a strange object, which had the shape of an oblong egg, was completely white, smooth, without edges, evenly colored. The pilots reported this to the command. A few years ago, the report was obtained by CBS News.

Dave Favor then recalled in an interview that he saw a strange white object moving above the water without any predictable trajectory. Ms. Dietrich, who then served in the rank of junior lieutenant, and then rose to the rank of lieutenant commander (lieutenant colonel) of naval aviation, argued that the appearance of such an unidentified object in the deployment area of ​​the aircraft carrier group did not correspond to the plans of the command.

Since none of the fighters were armed, the pilots, as Dietrich recalls, felt some anxiety. They could not understand what this object was and what to expect from it. In an interview with Bussines Insider, the former Navy pilot recalled that it was then completely incomprehensible how she or her commander would react to the appearance of such an object in the sky.

As Dietrich recalls, she remained at the top, while her squadron leader approached the object for recognition. However, when the squadron commander's fighter was near the UFO, the object suddenly accelerated and disappeared. The UFO was later spotted by another US Navy ship.

In 2020, the US military officially declassified a video showing a strange object. In a commentary on the video, Pentagon officials said that the phenomena caught on the video have not yet been studied.


Alex Dietrich herself has been wondering for seventeen years what kind of object she saw then in the sky over the western coast of the States. The pilot cannot answer to herself the question of what it was, and understand whether she was in the balance of death, or whether an unidentified flying object did not threaten her in any way. At the same time, the pilot recalls that she was a little disappointed with the behavior of the UFO. The object did not react in any way to the approach of fighters, and then simply accelerated and disappeared.

Meanwhile, last year, the US Department of Defense announced the creation of a special group on unidentified air phenomena to detect, analyze and classify them, and determine the degree of threat from these objects. The need to create a task force was explained by the fact that naval pilots more than once noticed similar UFOs within sight. Not only Alex Dietrich and Dave Favor, but also other military personnel of the US Navy's naval aviation encountered during the periods of their service with similar strange phenomena, the nature of which has not yet been explained.

We don't know what it was, but it was there. We have seen this and it deserves further investigation.

- emphasized in an interview with Alex Dietrich, a female pilot who has flown more than 200 flights during her many years of service in the naval aviation of the US Navy.

It should be noted that recently in the Western (primarily American) press, publications devoted to unidentified objects, including underwater ones, have been appearing more and more often. At the same time, stories of past years are also told. It can be assumed that this is due to a banal reason to knock out another increase in funding - now for "counteraction to unidentified flying and underwater objects."

      Market laws ... Want to read about UFOs - 10 cents per bucket please. After all, the absolute majority of the people wish to see such a miracle. And to organize the presentation of the material in such a way as to plant the grain "Oh, and indeed it really can be" from scratch - this is the professionalism of the media fraternity.
      And if there are realists, this majority nafig are not interested in their meticulous analysis of each case. Poorly paid.

      Something anecdote remembered:
      There is a Jew along the river, watching - a UFO descends.
      Well, a Jew picked up a meadow of flowers and with a bouquet ran to meet his brothers in mind.
      Runs to the plate, it opens, two green humanoids emerge from there.
      Jew joyfully:
      - Shalom, dzuzya
      One alien to another:
      - Damn it, they've already landed here ...

    The likelihood of encountering a UFO is the same as Apallon flew to the moon
    In fact
    1. If they exist, they obviously fly more than the speed of light and have mastered wormholes
    2. They are able to explore any part of the galaxy, a consequence of item 1.
    3. The most incredible ... our civilization emitted radio signals 115 years ago


    What is the likelihood of finding them?

      Until recently, I thought the same way. Until the incredible story of the meeting of such an object, I was not told by two very familiar people who met him on the Ob river in Siberia in late autumn in the evening. They were moving on a motor ship with a ferry carrying livestock, when, from behind Panteleevsky Island, a glow began to appear on the river, and then an object appeared in the form of a disk with a diameter of about 200 meters with flickering lights along the edges, because of this there was a glow and hovered over the sandy and on the shore there appeared a light as from a searchlight, but they could not see where it was coming from. The object hovered for a minute, and then with incredible speed rushed into the sky. A few seconds later it was already a point and then disappeared. witnesses) told me -To say that I was scared to say nothing, horror seized. These are normal people who annually undergo honey. commission, so since then I have stopped being ironic about such topics.

      The American military is pushed against the wall by Congress.
      They were asked head-on: are the videos from the IR sights of the aircraft genuine or not?
      They answered "yes".
      Does this pose a threat to US security: no.
      The soldiers were left alone, and they posted a video without nerves.

      In fact, the pilots of the SSR Air Force also encountered them, but it was not accepted to talk about it, they could be written off from flight work for delirium.

    Interestingly, the most "smart and advanced" in the United States have already begun to point fingers in the direction of Russia and China. They say that the Russians or the Chinese are testing new types of weapons. In this case, I would like to wish that their hangover does not smoothly turn into a binge. Otherwise, it will be possible to blame the DPRK.
    And the fact that something flies at high speeds and maneuvers impossible to understand is a fact and not an isolated one. Maybe someday we'll find out.

    If aliens do exist, then they are very far from us. And what is observed in our country (UFO and its analogue ball lightning) are simply unexplored natural phenomena. For example, it can be bunches of ultracold neutrinos, which can hold together the charge of electrons and particles of matter.
    More details (in the article, ultracold neutrinos are called low-frequency matter and there are reasons for this):
