UFO Encounter Near San Diego with Ttwo Navy F-A-18F 2004
The following recounts an incident in 2004 that advocates of research into U.F.O.s have said is the kind of event worthy of more investigation, and that was studied by a Pentagon program that investigated U.F.O.s. Experts caution that earthly explanations often exist for such incidents, and that not knowing the explanation does not mean that the event has interstellar origins.
     WASHINGTON — Cmdr. David Fravor and Lt. Cmdr. Jim Slaight were on a routine training mission 100 miles out into the Pacific when the radio in each of their F/A-18F Super Hornets crackled: An operations officer aboard the U.S.S.

“Well, we’ve got a real-world vector for you,” the radio operator said, according to Commander Fravor. For two weeks, the operator said, the Princeton had been tracking mysterious aircraft. The objects appeared suddenly at 80,000 feet, and then hurtled toward the sea, eventually stopping at 20,000 feet and hovering. Then they either dropped out of radar range or shot straight back up.

  1. Thank you for your admonition that seeing such ufos and their remarkable actions doesn't mean that they are real. Le t me put it to you so that even you v=can understand. My bother, my sister in law and my best friend saw a bright object in the sky hovering over me Mother's house late one evening. They watched it and saw it suddenly emit a bright glow and shoot off into the sky so quickly that their eyes could hardly follow it. Now ask me the standard question, Do you believe your brother and your other parties or do you believe the US military that there are no such ufos? Guess what my answer will be.
