A still from one of three videos released by the Pentagon on Monday, April 27, 2020 featuring “unidentified aerial phenomena” captured by U.S. Navy pilots during training flights in 2004 and 2015. “The aerial phenomena depicted in the videos sighted remain characterized as “unidentified,” the Pentagon said in a statement.
United States Department of Defense
WASHINGTON – This is reported by the American top espionage service Thursday 366 since March 2021, new cases of unidentified aerial phenomena have been reported to US intelligence agencies.
The 366 newly added reports join a catalog of 144 cases documented over the past 17 years.
The total record of bizarre aerial activity now stands at 510.
The Office of Director of National Intelligence wrote in an unclassified 11-page report that multiple agencies found the flying objects “displayed unusual flight characteristics or performance.”
The classified version of the report, required by the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2022, was submitted to Congress.
The majority of the reports came from U.S. Navy and Air Force airmen and operators who witnessed the unidentified aerial phenomena while on duty.
In 2020, the Pentagon formed a new task force to investigate UFO sightings sighted by US military aircraft on several occasions.
The creation of the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force, or UAPTF, continues an effort begun in recent years to investigate unexplained aerial incidents faced by the U.S. military.
The U.S. Navy has previously led efforts to investigate unidentified aerial phenomena, as the Service Department has reported several encounters with their aircraft.
‘Look at that thing, dude! It turns!’
In April 2020, the Pentagon released three videos taken by US Navy pilots that appear to show unidentified flying objects. Two of the videos feature US military personnel commenting on how fast the object is moving, while another speculates that the unidentifiable object could be a drone.
“Dude, this is a f-king drone, bro,” you hear a pilot say. Another says, “There’s a whole fleet of them.”
“They all go against the wind. The wind is 120 knots to the west. Look at that thing, dude!’ says the first person. “It turns!”
At the time, then-President Donald Trump described the US Navy footage as “an amazing video” and told Reuters he wondered “if it’s real”.
Two months later, the Senate Intelligence Committee voted that both the Pentagon and intelligence community leaders must provide a public analysis of these encounters.
