Just a week after the Pentagon for the first time admitted having investigated Unidentified Flying Objects with an especially assigned ‘Aerospace Threat Identification Program’, for which the US taxpayer spent $22 million between 2008 and 2012, the first footage that was investigated has been released, and it is stunning to say the least.
It shows an unidentified object being chased by two Navy F/A-18F fighter jets from the aircraft carrier Nimitz off the coast of San Diego, easily outmaneuvering them and continuously rotating in heavy winds.

The stunned pilots show their disbelief in the conversation with each other as they try and catch up with the object.
Pilot 2: This is a f–king drone, bro.
Pilot 1: There’s a whole fleet of them, look on the NSA.’
Pilot 2: My Gosh.
Pilot 1: They’re all going against the wind. The wind is 120 knots out to the west.
Pilot 2: Look at that thing dude.
Pilot 1: That’s not a UFO is it?
Pilot 2: That is a UFO.
Pilot 1: Well, if there is a ….
Pilot 2: Look at that thing…
Pilot 1: It’s rotating.
Other documents from the Pentagon program describe sightings of aircraft moving at very high velocities with no visible signs of propulsion, or that hovered with no apparent means of lift.
Many of the findings remain classified to this date.
