Senator Mark Warner, the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, has been confirmed as one of the politicians who were briefed. His spokesperson, Rachel Cohen, said in a statement reported by POLITICO: “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.” The briefing comes after US Navy reported seeing ‘fast-flying objects’ during late-night training.
Incredible infrared cockpit-camera footage taken by US Navy pilots have shown a succession of fast-flying UFOs, some spinning in mid-air and moving against a 120-knot wind, and often accompanied by commentary from shocked airmen.
Although the footage features only one of these objects, one pilot is heard to say: “There’s a whole fleet” showing up on his monitors.
A shocked voice is later heard to say: “Look at that thing! It’s rotating!”
Newly declassified Pentagon data indicates UFOs were spotted almost every day over the skies off the US East Coast, between the summer of 2014 and March 2015.
The US Navy pilots, flying from the USS Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier while training for active duty, reported to their superiors the UFOs defied the laws of physics.
The 30-40ft (10-15m) long UFOs had no wings, rotors, or any discernible means of propulsion.
However, they could be seen to both hover in the sky, halt suddenly and instantaneously accelerate to hypersonic speeds of a mile a second.
Commander David Fravor and his colleagues described seeing a large object just below the surface of the water, and another, 50ft above, hovering erratically.
They described it as 40ft long, white, wingless and shaped like an oblong pill.
As Commander Fravor flew towards it the second object rose to meet him at a fast speed and acceleration.
He said: “The hair on the back of my neck was standing up.
“I was thinking: ‘I’m going to be watching a disaster here.’ You’re wondering: ‘How can I possibly fight this?’”
Instead, the object suddenly peeled away at a speed that Commander Fravor admits left him feeling “pretty weirded out.”
