“After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems, and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena,” Pentagon spokesperson Sue Gough said.
One of the videos shows an incident from 2004, and the other two were recorded in January 2015, captured by Navy pilots on their video sensors during training flights. These videos which have been circulating online for years, features pilots describing strange encounters.
Notably, when these videos were previously leaked, many believed that they show alien unidentified flying objects (UFOs). More so, these videos were also deemed as ‘real’ by the Navy.
Saying that Americans deserve to be informed, former senator, Harry Reid, lauded the Pentagon’s decision to officially release the clips.
As per reports, one of these videos show fast-moving oblong objects racing through the sky with a pilot, yelling, “Look at that thing, dude — it’s rotating!”
The two other videos are from 2015 which show strange objects moving very quickly, one racing above the water, another rotating in mid air as per a CBS News report.
“Dude, this is a f–king drone, bro,” a pilot exclaims on the video while another person says “there’s a whole fleet of them.”
