Mystery UFO video supposedly from USS Nimitz fighter jet intrigues researchers

Written by Barnett Parker
Posted: Nov 10, 2017

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
UFO researchers around the world have been abuzz in recent weeks about a video supposedly shot in 2004 from a Super Hornet fighter jet based on the carrier USS Nimitz.

The video shows an object in the distance that doesn’t act like a typical aircraft – and it veers out of sight as a fighter jet closes.

The story first came to light in a 2015 article in fightersweep.com – and the tale was rekindled exponentially when former Blink-182 frontman Tom DeLonge referenced it Oct. 11 during his announcement about the creation of his To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science.

Author John B. Alexander of Las Vegas believes the incident happened, but he hasn’t confirmed the video. Alexander – whose books include “UFOs” Myths, Conspiracies, and Realities” -- told FOX5 he believes the video originated with the U.S. Navy.

Alexander said in an email that he “asked one of the guys who saw it in a classified version,” and that his source “was very highly placed, and I mean very highly placed.”

He added: “The update is they believe the video to be real, but do not-- do not -- confirm the authenticity. Others videos are likely soon to similar incidents.”

DeLonge didn’t show any video from the 2004 incident with the Nimitz and various UFOs about 100 miles from San Diego but he has teased that one of the group’s goals is to release such previously classified video and documents.

Since the announcement, what could be described as video from the display the pilot sees has popped up in several places on Youtube and other internet sites.

The origin of the video is uncertain, although two UFO researchers say it first appeared in 2007 on what they describe as a website run by German film students.

Researcher Isaac Kol lives in London and sometimes posts on the Web forum Above Top Secret.

He recently posted:
Back in 2007, I tracked the first online copy of the video back to THE WEBSITE OF A GROUP OF GERMAN FILM STUDENTS THAT SPECIALIZED IN CREATING SCIENCE FICTION MOVIES WITH LOTS OF SPECIAL EFFECTS (VISION UNLIMITED).

His post also included, “in 2007, I WAS INCLINED TO REACH THE TENTATIVE CONCLUSION THAT IT WAS A HOAX... I FIND IT VERY INTERESTING THAT THE CURRENT ROUNDS OF DISCUSSION SEEM TO IGNORE THE PROVENANCE OF THE FOOTAGE…”

Kol told FOX5 in an email, “I don’t claim to have debunked that footage – merely shown that the place that it was originally posted raises red flags pending further evidence.”

Robert Powell lives in Austin, Texas, and publishes on the Facebook page Scientific Coalition for Ufology.

He said: “The video was first found on a German film site back in 2007 I believe. That makes one suspicious, but there is no proof that the video was doctored by the German film students. I'm not aware that anyone has looked at the video and made a determination that it was edited in some fashion.”

Powell has filed a freedom of information requests to obtain all the documentation he can about the November 2004 incidents with the Nimitz.

Alexander noted he believes audio tapes of the pilots communicating with flight control also exist.

One reason researchers found this video so intriguing is the way the UFOs baffled the Navy’s best fighter jets and radar systems in the days around Nov. 14, 2004.

The story on fightersweep.com described the anomalous aerial vehicles as dropping from above 80,000 feet, according to radar returns and then hovering 50-feet off the water within a matter of seconds.

The objects then moved away at “speeds, turn rates and accelerations faster than any known friendly or threat aircraft.”

This case may be one of the first cases of hoaxes that are actually real events. This is very difficult to grasp by an unprepared mind - especially by a mind that unconditionally surrenders to the wits of high-ranking UFO clergy.

The ever more sophisticated CGI technology enables altering footage made by the military, which has consequently much higher degree of credibility than the run-of-the-mill uneventful videos made by ordinary folks that wind up on You Tube. So you can expect coming across a footage like the one posted by Swamprat.

Now, remember that the hoaxers - even the sophisticated ones - have been infected by the decades-long paradigm that feeds on the idea that it is absolutely immaterial what reason the hypothetical ET would have to have to approach a certain object or to hover above a certain place. There is only one thing that matters to the UFO cardinals: if the UFO image is a real deal or not.

The decision to squarely ignore almost everything else sprang from a practical reason, though. It stands to reason that a UFO investigator would rather rely on his own photos, than on inspecting someone else's where a possibility of a hoax exists.

Q: Why don't you go and make your own photos?

A: I don't know where a UFO pops out next.

Q: Why is it so that you don't know?

A: The appearance of UFO's cannot be predicted, because it can be very easily compared to chaos.


And here is the problem. When you put Homo sapiens on Mars to the time like the 19th century, and start to explore Mars the way we have, those folks on Mars would surely notice the unexpected company. In order to study the phenomenon of orbiting alien objects, they would figure out the movement of our probes. It would be possible, because our exploration of Mars has specific purpose - it stands on a reason - so it would be possible for the Martians to calculate various parameters of appearance over certain Martian regions. With UFO, the case is entirely different - there is a very high degree of entropy, which strongly suggests absence of reason. That inevitably leads to a conclusion that the UFO display is amalgamation of ET unrelated events. The UFO researchers, who supplement their income through writing on the subject of UFO, obviously cannot have that situation. So they diverted the attention of their readers to a method of investigation that is hardly compatible with common sense - and the Church of UFO was founded.

How to outsmart the Martians not to mess with your Mars lander?

Just make them think in terms of their crashed weather balloons...

Actually NASA learned the way to use balloons as a mean of cushioned landing from the Roswell case. A disclosure on that is pending... wink

Next, we try to figure out what was so interesting about aircraft carrier Nimitz that attracted the attention of a UFO. No reason signals a hoax, but things got a bit more complicated than that.

Interesting article and linked video, Swamprat. With Alexander weighing in as he does, his forte imo being investigating the (level of) reality of the UFO phenomenon, I suspect the reported navy pilot sighting is the real deal, while the vid could be either be CGI reenactment closely approximating the authentic footage/report, or the (edited, carefully vetted for public release) AUTHENTIC version shot from the fighter aircraft!

Travex, I tell you I have no idea WHY crew/controllers of a (apparent) flying disk would want to show themselves to a US aircraft carrier. Do you? I'm curious as to what you'd guess or know or may calculate here.

My take on the human, military shadow players' side is that after the incident the assessment was made the true story, possibly even real footage might surface over time, so they defused any leak of such (presumptively) highly classified materials by LEAKING IT PREEMPTIVELY themselves in a form that suggested a hoax. Makes it easy to refute in case too many would give the event credence.

I get an error message from that link.

One has to wonder,, if true, why the video first showed up via a site run by German film students. Why would they have it ?

Hi Hal it worked for me on my phone hope that helps.

I suspect that the US, UK and Australian Airforce has lots of films like these.

Its providence is suspect and I would much prefer footage like these coming directly from the Military.

Frustrating that as a community we scrutinise these crumbs when there is a wealth of films being withheld.

The purpose of the real UFO manifestation was mostly the same: to inform about a future event that holds some significance. The problem is that it is very difficult for ordinary earth-based humans to extract a detailed picture of what is coming up - what the UFO actually signals.

The recovery of the info is guided by strict logic - mainly the logic of opposites, or the binary logic of statement being either FALSE or TRUE. In this particular UFO sighting, you encounter it in this example form:

B______b
K______k
C______c

and so on. In general case,

Upper-Case Letter______lower-case letter

If a person fails to comprehend the following comparison based on mutually exclusive opposites,

first is to upper-case as last is to lower-case,

then there is no point in explaining the language the ET's speak.

Note that we use certain words that are logical to the ET's - those are the words that start with upper case letter and end with lower-case letter. We write personal nouns, or names, like that.

Now imagine a test question, which is basically a request.

Names: ?

What, in the world, am I suppose to do? Write down some names? What names? And how many?

Unlike us, the extraterrestrial humans immediately start thinking in terms of reducing the list of all, almost endless, possibilities. Firstly, the word Names is in plural.
Since the minimal requirement for items being in the plural form is 2, the answer can be limited to 2 names X and Y.

Names: X Y

Unfortunately, that leaves you with thousands of options still. But there is a room for further reduction. Unlike common nouns, personal nouns start with upper case letters and that is the point of further reduction of additional possibilities. You can use equivalence and create an arrangement that has only 1 in 676 chance of being just a coincidence.

Names: N_____ , N_____

If you leave your answer like that, the ET's would be more than happy. But imagine that you pick a particular case.

Names: November, Nimitz

The ET's are familiar with noted persons, and so they would think in terms of Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chester_W._Nimitz

The problem would be how to justify the choice of November, because Chester Nimitz was born and died in the same month - in February.

So the ET's turn to other option involving the name Nimitz:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Nimitz

But time-wise, things still don't jibe. Here are the months particular to the aircraft carrier Nimitz:

Ordered: in March
Laid down: in June
Launched: in May
Commissioned: in May

There is no month of November particular to USS Nimitz. Hmm...

Well, there are still options in linking November with Nimitz:
Powell has filed a freedom of information requests to obtain all the documentation he can about the November 2004 (UFO) incidents with the Nimitz.

And now it is the time for the opposites...

We know that N___ N___ stands for November Nimitz. What does the opposite stand for?

___n ____n

Given the overall circumstances, like where the aircraft carrier can sail, the answer could be

___n ___n = Indian Ocean.

If it is so, the UFO is saying that a notable event will take place in Indian Ocean and we need to recover more specific data. See, the aircraft carrier is one of the biggest man-made objects, so whatever will go down in Indian Ocean may be also big.

Now, note once again the relationship used:

First/Upper-Case Letter_______last/lower-case letter.

This format was already mentioned a very long time ago:
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
Revelation 22:13


Well, it looks that some pretty big act of God is about to take place in the Indian Ocean. But further info needs to be recovered by using basic binary logic to become reasonably sure.

If you made it mentally unscathed all the way down here, you will be able to understand the next steps. Guys, prior being suspended for a gross misconduct, I used to review*** the logic written in selected UFO sightings, before the ET's executed it. So I'm pretty much familiar with it. That's why I can easily recover the additional info.

***
After a battle, everyone is an admiral.

No, it doesn't go like that. We, the earth-based folks, say, "After a battle, everyone is a general."

Now it's time to try extracting a date...

We have the situation in which an alleged UFO appears near a named object of some significance, as an aircraft carrier surely is. From the previous observation, we know that there is a link between parameters WHEN and WHAT. The link is based on an identity, because English features a coincidence involving the first letters of words that start questions: When, What, Who, Where. Mindful of this quadruple identity, the ET's would display - in important cases - a UFO effect that follows the W identity (W=W as N=N).

When: November
What: Nimitz

You need to brush up on the following by reading the previous post where the simple logic of opposites is explained - the relation between the opposites the first and the last, and the upper-case and the lower-case. Given the overall circumstances, the decoded initial message* was

N___ N____ = November Nimitz
*_____n ___n = Indian Ocean

From the above, we know that the ET's point toward Indian Ocean - that's Where. Is it possible to recover When (date)?

Yes, it is, but the degree of certainty is not easy to establish. First, look at the four words again.

November Nimitz Indian Ocean

There is this unlike any other item - the word Nimitz. What makes it special?

If you stick with the logic of opposites, you will figure it out.

Nimitz

See it? Unlike in the other three words, the first and the last letters of Nimitz are similar symbols. If you turn N by 90 degrees (from the north to the east), you get a Z-like symbol: N(imit)Z.

Normally, the rest would be easy. Just use alphabetical order of both similar letters to arrive at the month and the day (in the US date format where the month precedes the day). Since

N = 14
Z = 26


the date is 14/26. huh

Like hell it is - a year has only 12 months.

Here comes the interesting part. We don't know it, but the majority of Nobel Prize Winners are lazy quitters, like the rest of us, who need to be prompted by the alien implants 24/7, especially when they encounter problems similar to the one with the impossible date 14/26. But let's put some IQ into this to lead us away from the predicament...

We know that there is something between N and Z.

N(imit)Z

If N=14 and Z=26, then there must be also something between 14 and 26, right?

14( ? )26

Hmm... Hmm... Actually the bridge between 14 and 26 isn't that difficult to build.

14 (15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25) 26

That's OK, that's not wrong, but let's be smart about it and save some building material.

14(+12=)26

We have added(+) another number to bridge the gap between 14 and 26. Junk the first number 14 and a new date shows up promptly.

12/26, or December 26

So the UFO announces Where=Indian Ocean and When=December 26, presumably the same year it was sighted and recorded by the US Navy - in 2004.

But we need to have some idea what is going to go down in Indian Ocean on December 26, 2004. This info cannot be retrieved without seeing the UFO footage, though.

Well, there are not many options what will probably happen. Sure, a huge asteroid impacting the Indian Ocean would affect the whole world...
...but those... those extraterrestrials wouldn't inform us about something we can do nothing about. I think we should consider the problem suggested by the footage. And since that wouldn't affect the USA, I suggest to you, Mr. President, that we do nothing about it. You understand, we wouldn't be able to reasonably explain how we came into the possession of knowledge that cannot be obtained by any known scientific methods.

Fox News joins the conversation.....

And if you notice, this account seems to support the Nimitz story......


'Stunning' Tic Tac shaped UFO encounter by US Navy pilot? 'It was not from this world'

Fox News
Dec 19, 2017

A retired U.S. Navy pilot revealed the time in 2004 when he encountered a strange object he claimed was “not from this world.”

Cmdr. David Fravor, a Navy pilot for 18 years, said he has come across strange things during his tenure but recalled one encounter on Nov. 14, 2004 that left him puzzled, ABC News reported.

"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."

Fravor said he was on a routine training mission off the coast of California when he witnessed a 40-foot “wingless object” that he described as a Tic Tac, flying at incredibly high speeds in strange patterns.

"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.

The pilot said controllers on a Navy ship reported “objects dropping out of the sky from 80,000 feet and going straight back up.”

"So we're thinking, OK, this is going to be interesting," Fravor said.

The pilot recalled seeing the object and asking another aviator if he saw the strange aircraft that arrived on the radar.

“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," Fravor said.

Fravor said they flew their planes lower to check the object out but it disappeared before they could get a good look.

"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 it vanished.

The aviators decided to return to their training exercise when a controller informed them the object had returned.

AT THE SAME TIME, FRAVOR SAID, AN AIRCRAFT LAUNCHED FROM THE NEARBY USS NIMITZ HAD ALSO PICKED UP THE STRANGE OBJECT ON THEIR INFRARED CHANNEL.

"He gets close enough to see a couple of objects come out of the bottom, and then all of a sudden it takes off and goes right off the side of the screen and, like, takes off," Fravor said.

The pilot said the object’s speed was “stunning” and could not 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,” Fravor said.

The object was not investigated following the appearance.

Fravor’s experience followed two reports that were published by The New York Times and Politico this weekend. The reports described a secret multimillion-dollar Pentagon program aimed at investigating “unidentified aerial phenomena” better known as "UFOs." The program began in 2007 and may still be in place.

Just adding a couple of ingredients to this soup.

Tonight CNN mentioned (in suitably jocular media fashion) this business about government and ufos.
The example they used was something spotted in a gun camera over the sea off the California coast.

Now, a couple of days back I was watching a 'uest' item. 'UFOs: the lost evidence 'Deep sea encounters'. I don't particularly follow this aspect of the phenomena, but I watched it anyway. In fact I watched it four times.

What happened is that about 50 minutes into the video the subject was an area under the surface that is about 85 miles West of San Diego. It is a USGS image and shows an 'oval' object with pointy bits along the edges. The narrator was saying how it didn't look natural etc.

So on the third pass through I paused the screen when the image was at it's largest. And I had one of those 'You're not joking' moments.

But it wasn't the object of discussion that surprised me.

If you look off to the left and up a bit there are what look like terraces. four (maybe five) very defined and very straight lines run upwards at varying angles. From the lower edge of each distinct line there is a straight line leading off to the left. All these 'horizontal lines are parallel to each other. And they look very similar to a series of terrace walls.

It is striking that the area covered by the object and the 'terraces' is smooth. and yet the ocean floor in other parts of the shot is as you would expect it to be. Very twisted and organic.

Now, Nature may abhor a vacuum. but it also doesn't do straight lines.

Well worth the time to look it up if you haven't seen it already.

Thing is, if I hadn't paused the video to look closer at the 'object' I wouldn't have noticed the straight lines.

The UFO spotter

Navy pilots used Raytheon tech to track a strange UFO

Eighty nautical miles off San Diego, the U.S.S. Nimitz Battle Group was engaged in routine training. Then it became anything but routine.

Three F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jets practicing dogfight maneuvers were interrupted and revectored mid-mission to investigate an Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon; military parlance for a UFO. They engaged the craft, but were quickly outmaneuvered and lost visual contact. It had simply vanished.

The pilots were clearly baffled by the object. “Look at that thing, dude,” said one in a video credited to the U.S. Department of Defense by the New York Times.

Fast forward 13 years to Dec. 16, when the New York Times published a report on the 2004 incident and a little-known Pentagon program that tracked such reports from 2007 until at least 2012. Included was the video of the incident, which was captured by a Raytheon Advanced Targeting Forward Look Infrared sensor, mounted under one of the fighter jets.

Called the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program, the government program analyzed UAP imagery and data such as the images from the Raytheon-made ATFLIR.

“We might be the system that caught the first evidence of E.T. out there,” said Aaron Maestas, director of engineering and chief engineer for Surveillance and Targeting Systems at Raytheon's Space and Airborne Systems business. “But I’m not surprised we were able to see it. ATFLIR is designed to operate on targets that are traveling in excess of Mach 1. It’s a very agile optical system with a sensitive detector that can distinguish between the cold sky and the hot moving target quite easily.”
