Washington: The US Navy has acknowledged that the three UFO videos presented by the US media and a research organisation are real. It is the first open admission on UFOs – Unidentified Flying Objects. The confession has sparked heavy debates on aliens and UFOs in media circles and on social media.
The gun-cameras on the US Air Force’s F-18 warplanes had pictured three separate accounts from November 2004 and January 2015. In the three videos, objects that closely resemble UFOs are visible as also the pilots from the aircraft are heard discussing it. The videos were even unofficially known as Gimbal, FLIR 1 and Go Fast.
All the three videos were published in 2017 and 2018 by Tom DeLong, To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science and The New York Times. Former US Senator Harry Reid had demanded an investigation into it. Also, after that, the Pentagon was revealed to have initiated a secret UFO investigatory project. Furthermore, the US Department of Defence is said to have briefed the Senators on the election committee of the US Navy’s UFO encounters.
In July, President Trump had brought up the incidents in an interview with the US news channel, Fox News. While answering a question on UFOs, Trump told Fox News that he did not particularly believe in UFOs although anything was possible. The topic may most likely come to the fore once again with the US Navy’s admittance on UFOs.
Interestingly, instead of referring to the sightings as ‘Unidentified Flying Objects’, the US Navy has referred to them as ‘Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon’.
