The UFO as seen on console

The Tic Tac UFO is a elliptical extra-terrestrial object seen on footage, and in real life (pilot's testimony). This is the only UFO incident which the pentagon admitted to have happened, and was released later in an official document. The Incident was described in several UFO-related movies/series such as Unidentified: Inside America's UFO Investigation.


In 2004, F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter pilots and sensor instrumentation associated with the USS Nimitz Carrier Strike Group reported instrument detection of unknown aerial objects. According to Navy pilot David Fravor, a radar operator aboard the USS Princeton told him to investigate radar indications of a target at 80,000 feet (24,000 m) that had apparently moved rapidly down to the sea before stopping at 20,000 feet (6,100 m). Fravor said the operator told him he had been tracking similar radar indications for the past two weeks. During 2014–2015, fighter pilots associated with the USS Theodore Roosevelt carrier strike group reported instrument detection's of unknown aerial objects which the pilots were unable to identify. These detection's, along with pilot observations, were later reported in the mainstream media. Some of the involved pilots subsequently gave interviews about their experiences.

The resulting three videos, termed “GIMBAL.wmv,” “GOFAST.wmv,” and “FLIR.mp4,” purporting to show encounters by jets from Nimitz and Theodore Roosevelt with unusually shaped, fast-moving aircraft, became subject to "fevered speculation by UFO investigators."Stories published by the New York Times that featured the videos have been criticized by journalism professor Keith Kloor as "a curious narrative that appears to be driven by thinly-sourced and slanted reporting." According to Kloor, "Cursory attention has been given to the most likely, prosaic explanations. Instead, the coverage has, for the most part, taken a quizzical, mysterious frame that plays off the catchy “UFO” tag in the headline.
