Cmdr. David Fravor, a retired U.S. Navy pilot who flew aircrafts for 18 years, has revealed his claimed encounter with an unidentified object, which he says was “not from this world.”
On Nov. 14, 2004, Fravor said he encountered something that left him perplexed, according to ABC News. He claims he was on a routine training mission off the coast of California when he witnessed a 40-foot “wingless object” he described as the shape of a Tic Tac, flying at incredibly fast speeds in strange patterns.
“I can tell you, I think it was not from this world,” Fravor said. “I’m not crazy, haven’t been drinking. It was — after 18 years of flying, I’ve seen pretty much about everything that I can see in that realm, and this was nothing close. I have never seen anything [like this] in my life, in my history of flying, that has the performance, the acceleration [of this vehicle] — keep in mind this thing had no wings.”
Fravor said controllers on a Navy ship reported “objects dropping out of the sky from 80,000 feet and going straight back up.” The pilot recalled seeing the unidentified object and asking another aviator if he also witnessed the peculiar aircraft on his radar.
“So, we’re thinking, OK, this is going to be interesting,” Fravor said. “We look down, we see a white disturbance in the water, like something’s under the surface, and the waves are breaking over, but we see next to it, and it’s flying around, and it’s this little white Tic Tac, and it’s moving around — left, right, forward, back, just random.”
They flew their planes lower to check the object out, according to Fravor, but it vanished before they could get a substantial view.
“When it started to near us, as we started to descend towards it coming up, it was flying in the elongated way, so it’s [like] a Tic Tac, with the roundish end going in the forward direction … I don’t know what it is. I don’t know what I saw. I just know it was really impressive, really fast, and I would like to fly it,” he said.
The pilot said the water also turned blue when the Tic Tac-like object vanished. The aviators decided to return to their training exercise when a controller informed them the object had returned. At the same time, an aircraft launched from the nearby USS Nimitz had also picked up the anomaly on their infrared channel, according to Fravor.
Fravor insists the object’s speed was “stunning” and says he cannot fully explain what he saw that day.
“I don’t know if it was alien life, but I will say that in an infinite universe, with multiple galaxies that we know of, that if we’re the only planet with life, it’s a pretty lonely universe.”
There was no formal investigation into the existence of the object following the appearance.
Fravor’s personal experience came after two reports were published by The New York Times and Politico this weekend about a secret multimillion-dollar Pentagon program aimed at investigating “unidentified aerial phenomena,” better known as “UFOs.” The program began in 2007 and is likely still in place.
