    USS Nimitz - Tic tac UFO

    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.

    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....

    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?

    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

    The leaked Executive Summary of the USS Nimitz Tic Tac UFO is all over the UK Press

    Also stories in the Metro, The Sun and The Daily Mail.
    Just about every single one has used the wrong video in their reporting?
