View Full Version : USS Nimitz - Tic tac UFO

10-22-2017, 08:41 AM
This is a stunning case which Jeremy Corbell has been researching 'On a sunny day in 2004 off the coast of San Diego, the USS Nimitz battle group encountered a technology beyond anything known on earth. It was a mystery aircraft shaped like a 46-foot long Tic Tac that hovered and maneuvered for hours and defied the F-18's sent to intercept' George Knapp coast to coast show description.

According to one of the pilots there was a some genuine footage of the UFO or AAV as they call it on You Tube. It has since been pulled down. Jeremy Corbell has been investigating this for the past year or so

An article where one of the pilots friends explains in great detail what happened


A good buddy of mine and former squadron mate, Dave “Sex” Fravor, has one of the most bizarre aviation stories of all time. It is a story that stretches credibility, so I’ll start off by building up Dave’s bona fides.

For what it’s worth, I know him personally — very well. We flew A-6s together for a cruise back in the Dark Ages before he matriculated into the Hornet world. He’s a funny guy. Smart and sharp witted, with a typical fighter pilot’s overestimation of his skills. (He’d read the SHB article and assured me his was way better than anything Nasty could do. I called B.S.–pretty standard.) In the air, though, Dave was all business, as professional as it gets.

It’s easy to get a sense of who and what he is because his squadron was featured on the 10-part miniseries Carrier that aired on PBS. You get an excellent and accurate impression of him from his screen time as Commanding Officer of VFA-41.

VFA-41 ‘Black Aces’ CAG jet on its takeoff roll at MCAS Miramar, heading out to perform of the many Centennial of Naval Aviation fly-by’s.
On the morning of 14 November 2004, Dave and his WSO launched into the clear blue Southern California sky about a hundred miles southwest of San Diego. Their Call Sign was FASTEAGLE 01. His wingman and WSO launched just after them in FASTEAGLE 02. They climbed overhead the ship and rendezvoused in normal fashion before setting off to their assigned work area in the open ocean south of USS Nimitz. Normal day, normal ops for the pre-deployment work up cycle they were in the middle of.

The Nimitz Carrier Strike Group had been on station for a few weeks already, working to integrate the operations of the carrier with her various support ships, including the Ticonderoga Class Guided Missile Cruiser, USS Princeton. As far as Dave was concerned, it was a standard day in a normal work up cycle. Another step in the long journey in preparing the ships of the Strike Group and the planes of the Air Wing to work harmoniously for their upcoming combat deployment.

What Dave didn’t know was for the past several days, Princeton had been picking up some bizarre returns on their Death Star-worthy SPY-1 radar. On several occasions beginning 10 November, the Fire Control Officer and the extremely experienced Fire Control Senior Chief had detected multiple returns descending from far above the radar’s scan volume–somewhere higher than 80,000 ft. The targets, dubbed Anomalous Aerial Vehicles (AAVs), would drop from above 80K to hover roughly 50 feet off the water in a matter of seconds.

Always over the same spot, a Lat/Long about 30NM off the coast of Baja, roughly 70nm southwest of Tijuana. At the time, the SPY-1 was the most sophisticated and powerful tactical radar on the planet. With it, they were able to track these AAVs while they descended, hovered and then zipped away at speeds, turn rates and accelerations faster than any known friendly or threat aircraft. Impossibly fast....

The footage of the Tic Tac


10-24-2017, 07:01 PM
Very interesting!

Unless this is yet more “controlled leakage”, how that footage surfaced is beyond me.

Back in my day a leak like this would see the whole ship in lockdown with NIS investigators hauling in watch personnel en masse.

With time-stamped radar recordings it shouldn’t be that hard to figure out who had access to the radar recordings let alone the ability to make a copy.

USS Trepang’s leaked periscope photos and now the USS Nimitz; wonder what’s next?

10-24-2017, 07:11 PM
It’s worth listening to Jeremy on C2C in the last segment there was a caller who was onboard at the time, a radar operator, he said for the whole of his 8hr shift, while they were carrying out Naval exercises this thing kept pinging up in the same spot. He was told to ignore it but coming of shift he said he and senior officers and others saw gun camera footage from one of the F-16’s, one of them did a quick analysis of it and it was so quick at times they could figure how many g’s it was pulling. 15 minutes later he knew he’d never see that footage again.
I mentioned this in another thread last year when Jeremy was looking for witnesses and from what he was saying on the show he’s found a few. Would love to see what he comes up with

Jeremy Corbell's witness Kevin radar operator on the Nimitz

He saw guncamera footage of a disc shaped craft, he saw it dip in and out of the water and when they slowed footage of it accelerating, the AAV skipped frames


06-15-2018, 10:35 AM
Everyone should listen to this.
Mp3 of the KGRA show now uploaded from last night -John Burroughs did a really good interview with him.

It was just WOW! Amazing revelations I won't give anything away yet

2nd Radar operator in two days!
Chief Petty Officer Kevin Day was in charge of the SPY1 radar on the Princeton probably the most advanced radar on the planet at the time.
He could track it no problem everyone else it wasn't so easy...


He's being interviewed by George Knapp on Sunday

Kevin Day is a retired United States Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer, a former Operations Specialist and TOPGUN Air Intercept Controller with more than 20 years’ experience in Strike Group air defense including war-time operations.

06-15-2018, 04:46 PM
Apologies Trevor was Jeremy's witness.

Here are some of Kevin Day's Revelations for the KGRA show

Over the 6 days there were approximately 100 of these objects, they would vector in to same area at 24,000 ft then drift south at 100mph.

All the radar stations and the whole Cruiser Battle Group knew about them.

They came in fleets moving in in formation like snow on the radar screen moving south

Kevin Day discussed it with the Capt of Princeton and it was on a big displays on Princeton 'even people surface-side were seeing these things'

After Fravor shouted 'We are engaged' loads of planes went to check out these things @ one pt 8 air crews were trying to engage with them (ie 16 planes.)

Showed no intention of engaging just avoided the F-18s the carried on whatever they were doing. They were benign. Doesn't think they are ETs more like drones.

He mentioned missing time but wouldn't talk about it. The 8 layers of an optical disc recorder had time markers on but no audio of the event? Weird could have been swapped out?

Recommended reading part of his book - the short story called The See'r
"it kinda encapsulates what happened there although it’s fictional everything that happened in the combat information center is accurate, inside my short story."
Free to read here:

About someone, a See'r who can change and overwrite reality, because they are a perfect observer. A Gray calls him 'God.'
Just like I keep banging on about, we are all potentially able to affect reality on that level, as we co-created it. That's perhaps why they are here? Did we create them of did they create us?

Well worth listening to Peter Levanda on KGRA as well

06-18-2018, 02:35 PM
Kevin Day was on C2C last night

Didn't reveal much more , except they always came in fleets of 8-10, there were a lot more than a hundred over the 6 days.

He trying to pull together more witnesses and a couple have agreed to talk...

Many thanks Longeyes. Quality information this.

Jeremy Corbell interview with Dave Fravor

JC seems to gave used sound clips from tapes with original sound from the event.
No idea were he got that from?
Might be mistaken but the FLIR looks different too

Hi Longeyes. Thanks for great coverage of links in this thread.
Just a small correction. Those are not sound clips from the tapes. It is just Jeremy's creative touch that he made for dramatization purpose. I checked with Jeremy directly. Hope that helps. Best wishes Longeyes and keep up the great work.

Btw, Jeremy just released part 2 of his important interview with Fravor.


09-06-2018, 11:12 PM
Thanks Ufo radio

Seems crew members may have been sent letters asking to appear before the Senate Armed Services Committee to testify about the Nimitz incident. Two members of the battle group have discussed in Keith Baterfield's blog


"CybereyeAugust 16, 2018 at 5:09 AM
I have the email from Kirk McConnell confirming the Senate Armed Services Committee is interviewing all known to be involved with the Nimitz incident."

Kevin Day's email from McConnell posted here...

10-12-2018, 06:54 AM
Kevin Day iv basically reveals the he has increased ' abilities' after the Tic Tac incident just like Tom Delonge mentions in the last Sekret Machines book.
Day reports premonitions , wishing what he wants comes true, healing his dog.

He thinks it might be quantum consciousness the ETs effecting micro tubules in the brain at the base frequency of our minds. Somehow changing us.


He heard about microtuble from listening to Peter Levanda on KGRA Phenomenon Radio


John Burroughs mentions in the show that Kit Green and Hal told him 1THz radiation had caused his wired heart condition. Garry Nolan also helped.

New interview on the Fenton Files with Kevin Day


10-16-2018, 06:12 PM
Amazing thing Kevin is doing is talking about the after effects of contact with these UAPs. Premonitions, enhanced empathy, healing powers...
1hr 20mins in Kevin says the similiar stuff in his book actually happened 'The See'r', two spooks trek to meet him, he had the ability determine reality some kind of quantum entanglement.
In story spooks told him 'You invoked a different reality' Stuff has paralleled the story since the event. Doesn't believe it himself.

1hr 31' 00" Kevin is going to be on stage in April next year at Mega UFO Con, Lauglin with witnesses for Nimitz Tic Tac UFO and Gimbal maybe as many 6-8 interivewees
1 hr 36' 00" Some big is happening in "Last week in March, i believe a bunch of stuff is about to come out'

This is a pretty big hint something pretty massive is planned for end of next March.

11-04-2018, 11:16 PM
Kevin Day recently posted a photo to TDL, Luis Elizondo an interviewee and film crew and apparently
According to Kevin Day, we might find out what they are up to on Nov 14th the anniversary of the TIC TAC encounter?

11-11-2018, 06:15 PM
Remember remember the 14th November!

The Nimitz Encounters - A Short Documentary Film
On the morning of November 14th, 2004 90 miles of the coast of California near San Diego, the Nimitz Carrier Strike Group was conducting routine training and aerial defense exercises. No one could have known what would soon confront the sailors and naval aviators of the Black Aces Fighter Squadron. Unknown craft would appear that forever changed those that encountered them. The answers to the question of “what are they?” remains unknown. After 13 years of cloaked secrecy the True Story can finally be told.

11-15-2018, 06:43 AM
Not a bad job done on this...


11-24-2018, 06:21 AM
Major documentary coming out on the Nimitz Tic Tac


First, we found out that Nimitz Event witness, Kevin Day, was interviewed by Tom Delonge and Luis Elizondo with a camera crew present. Now we have a comment from Nimitz Event witness, Gary Voorhis, stating he was interviewed by TTSA‘s Chris Mellon, for a documentary that will air in January. I have spoken to Mr. Voorhis and got his OK to share this quote from 11-18-18:

“Was interviewed by Chris Mellon yesterday for a TV show about the Nimitz tic tac event. It will air in January will keep y’all posted.”
Another amazing comment from Kevin Day on 11-18-18 confirms a location that TTSA have been following up on, as well as reiterating that a documentary will air in January. I share this with Mr. Day’s permission:
“… there is a major TV network producing a documentary on the TIC TAC encounter .. looking for it sometime in January.. To The Stars Academy has interviewed many of my former shipmates who were involved and they have followed up ‘connected’ leads in Catalina Island (where the TIC TACs were detected on SPY radar )…”

New Dave Fravor interview

Convinced we’re alone in the universe? Think everyone who believes in UFOs is a lot like Randy Quaid’s character, Russel, in 20th Century Fox’s original Independence Day?
Retired US Navy Commander David “Sex” Fravor

Get ready to entertain doubts after listening to this week’s episode with retired US Navy Commander David “Sex” Fravor (you may recognize him from numerous appearances on the 2008 PBS series, Carrier). You’ll be amazed to hear events that transpired off the coast of Mexico in November 2004—events witnessed not just by Commander Fravor but by three other aviators in his flight and several others on subsequent flights...


01-04-2019, 05:37 PM
Well worth listening to the new interview with Dave Fravor

Quite a few new revelations in there...

He's been interviewed 4 times for upcoming TV documentaries, and for a set with Luis Elizondo and TTSA.
Also an interview with a dutch GQ like magazine

On the 'Tic Tac' Event

The Princeton controller told him they had been tracking them (ie Tic Tacs) for two weeks, up to 10 at a time, coming in from 80,000ft or above to 20,000ft then shooting back up.
(This confirms Kevin Day's testimony he mentioned multiple Tic Tacs but 2 weeks is a first)

Mexican's captured Tic Tacs as well. Somewhere there is a copy of that out there?
Possibly referring to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2Rk9cpykwU

DF: ...the top video of the year for the 2004, which came out 2005, for ?Comcast? videos was the Mexican Air Force tracking like six of these things with a FLIR
DF: In the same area...

He's been talking to the guys from the Gimball incident...

DF: One of the airplanes in the squadron almost hit one
HOST: On the East Coast?
DF: Yeah went about like 100ft down the side, they were on section and it went down the side, and they just came back and said "it looked like a ball with a cube inside of it". "Almost like a square that has an aura around it."

And the nickname 'Sex' comes from being called 'Sexual Fravor' in the early days, it got shortened later.

Part 2


01-21-2019, 12:08 PM
Watched the above show ; interesting to hear from another witnesses PJ Hughes who worked with the E2 Wallbangers. A friend of his signed a NDE NDA, "Roger" was on the E-2C Hawkeye that was overlooking Dave Favor's flight. He saw the Tic Tac up close in the air, and when on the ground couple of USAF officers confiscated their hard drives.

UFO JOE has done a nice write up here

Witness: Air Force Confiscated Hard Drives Related To Tic Tac UFO

Includes a bit about another witness USS Princeton, Fire Control-man and Aegis Computer/CEC Technician Gary Voorhis.

Is an NDE anything like an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement)?.
And who did "Roger" sign it for? USAF? Navy?

01-21-2019, 10:48 PM
Non-disclosure agreement NDA , NDE my typo

I think the Navy, Voorhis, claimed the uniformed men took stuff from his ship. Confusingly Fravor and his flights never had to sign an NDAs. The Hawkeyes were testing some new tech, which amalgamated all the battle group comms and other data. Pj said it was classified.
From what I remember reading the Hawkeye is supposed to co-ordinate operations from the air.

Highlights from the Nimitz panel at Megacon great writeup by UFO Joe
Now it seems there was sonar...

Full article

...Dave Beaty spoke about the submarine, USS Louisville, involved in the exercise and that in the official reports, the Captain said there was no sonar contact. Beaty recounted that one time, he was asking Gary Voorhis about this and Voorhis said that he was told there was sonar connect but that it was from, “the other sub?” Wait, what? The other sub? As Beaty noted, there is no record of another sub.

In these previous conversations with Beaty, Voorhis explained that he could go into CIC since he was a technician but he really didn’t have a need to be in the sonar room unless something was broken. But since some of that equipment needed maintenance at various times, he would find a way to place himself in there so he could hear stuff going on. And that’s how he heard one of the sonar guys mention the contact they had picked up.

Day joked that Voorhis was hiding behind his console. Voorhis jokingly confessed that sometimes, he was. He explained that the area where the sonar guys sit is a perfect spot in CIC where you can hear everything and nobody can see you. He’s good friends with the all the sonar guys so he used to sit there, wait and just listen. And then one night, they started talking and saying that they had contact. They had an actual contact through those waters.

Beaty asked him if it was his understanding that one of these objects went from 28,000 feet, down to the sea and just kept going?

Gary Voorhis: Yeah. It didn’t stop. Now, I will say that is secondhand information given to me directly to me by the sonar technicians. You know, they were like, ‘No, it didn’t stop. They’ve got contacts under water, too.’ And I just..I thought that was absolutely amazing. And then when these guys (Turner, Hughes and Day) are saying, ‘We didn’t know that.’ And I thought that everybody did. Everybody I knew.”...
