Another Pilot, Alex Dietrich Who Engaged Tic-Tac UFO Details The Events with Skeptic Mick West

     Pilot, Lieutenant Alex Dietrich who along with Commander David Fravor, of the F/A-18F squadron on the USS Nimitz engaged what has become known as The Tic-Tac UFO, finally went public with her account of the event(s) on CBS’ 60 Minutes, May 16th, 2021. (She did appear anonymously on Tom Delonge’s, Unidentified: Inside America's UFO Investigation). Since that time, she has been inundated with interview requests, and has become a social media celebrity of sorts.

Out of the melee, self-proclaimed skeptic, Mick West, who himself has gained notoriety of late, by debunking alleged UFO events generally, and countering the Tic-Tac UFO event specifically, persuaded her to sit down with him for an impromptu interview (see below).

The discussion was centered on what is labeled, CVW-11 EVENT SUMMARY (see below), which is exactly what it sounds like, i.e., a summary of events surrounding the UFO encounter on November 14th, 2004; Dietrich, although acknowledging that she can’t confirm the authenticity of the document (in that moment), intimates that it does appear genuine, incorporating proper nomenclature, etc., and deconstructs it paragraph by paragraph.

  1. These different phenomena did not just pop up on the proverbial radar screen in 2004. Not 2000, not 1990, not 1980...in fact my own files go back to 1945.

    Its easy to dismiss a case on one aspect of information alone, while ignoring other parts of evidence that are available. Only by including ALL available evidence can we even come close to getting a grasp on what has been going on.

    Whether or not this latest Government report will satisfy the "UFO enthusiast" personages that he has grouped into such a convenient category, for easy dismissal, or not, doesn't phase me at all. The truth is, this has been going on for much longer than some have thought.

    That said, this was a good interview. It provided good information. You cant' expect much more than that. Please continue in this vein.


  2. Mornin' Bob,

    Thanks for taking time to make comment.

    Your second paragraph nails it! Ideologues, to promote their dogma–cherry-pick the evidence; this a staple in West's methodology.

    Conversely, West has often made plausible arguments in his narrow focus, and attempting to debunk an alleged extraordinary sighting, occurrence or event is (or should be) part and parcel in every good Ufologist's modus operandi. Moreover, I appreciate the fact that he's willing to go to the horse's mouth, and do so with proper decorum.
