That Time the U.S. Navy Had a Close Encounter With a UFO
link to article

More details about the encounter.

Plus this:

Meanwhile, the The Aviationist points to a 2007 post from Above Top Secret (a site for discussing classified government programs) that seems to describe the incident in greater detail. The posting appears to be an excerpt from Carrier Air Wing 11’s event summary for November 14, 2004


Really pretty good article

For two weeks, the operator said, the Princeton had been tracking mysterious aircraft. The objects appeared suddenly at 80,000 feet, and then hurtled toward the sea, eventually stopping at 20,000 feet and hovering. Then they either dropped out of radar range or shot straight back up.



The Super Hornets flew to investigate the last known location of the object and to their surprise, found two objects. The first was large and just below the surface of the water, causing the water to churn. The second object hovered just 50 feet above the water, moving erratically.


ATS does it again.....

The first possibility is that the Super Hornet pilots, the Super Hornet’s electro-optical sensors and radars, and the USS Princeton’s radars all misinterpreted natural phenomena or malfunctioned at the same time, all of which appeared related but were actually not. Perhaps the Super Hornet’s crew was actually observing a conventional aircraft or even the sun, and had lost situational awareness to the point where they described such everyday objects as “a wingless capsule.” Maybe the Princeton’s radars were malfunctioning and had picked up, for example, two separate flights of birds and interpreted them as an object capable of jaw-dropping speeds. Together, the two crews could have pieced together ordinary, unremarkable events as one single remarkable one.

This is a discomforting explanation, because it assumes that the pilots and the Princeton’s crew were incompetent and unable to discern ordinary objects from extraordinary ones. It also assumes the guided missile cruiser's radar malfunctioned. If this explanation is correct, none of these pilots should have been flying for the Navy, and the Princeton’s air defense radar has a previously undiagnosed flaw. Given the level of skill necessary to fly from a U.S. Navy carrier it seems extremely unlikely these pilots were prone to fantasy or misidentifying the sun as a white, tic-tac-shaped UFO hovering close to the water.

The second possibility is that the objects are actually operated by an arm of the U.S. government. Rumors of the federal government studying crashed UFOs or experimenting with secret technology have been rampant for decades, though with scant proof. If these were indeed secret U.S. craft, it is clear why they’re being hidden. The Super Hornet was a top of the line aircraft in 2004 and yet the object easily out-maneuvered and out-accelerated it. If America’s enemies mastered such technology, most (but apparently not all) of our armed forces would be defenseless against them.

The third possibility is that the objects were alien craft, piloted by aliens or an artificial intelligence, using technology we can’t even imagine. The objects, their controllers, and their motivations could utterly alien and unknowable.

CNN was just talking about this. Crazy to see that the news is giving non joking airtime to these stories now.

Yep, and a quick glance at some of those posts in that thread show just how big a tool some members here are...not exactly a shining example of ATS IMO.

2004 USS Nimitz Tic Tac UFO FLIR footage

Copy of the video(near the end of that thread) since the link is defunct in the OP.

The Nimitz just returned to the base near me, that be cool if anyone who witnessed that was still on board and to interview them.

Feels like ATS is in the 2000s again with the news hype on UFO's. Feels good to see the community in a positive spirit once more.

To be fair the video was edited and the OP showed a lack of credibility for lying and posted with multiple accounts.

It's the same story alright.

Still though, it's not like this is something difinitive, but then it's not like ATS will necessarily permit something approaching difinitive ...or perhaps [just] secret to be viewed anyway.
There was a thread just a while ago when somebody posted a picture of an aircraft, both the picture and the poster were vanished.

But at least we know that the current hubbub is not actually about something making it's first appearance on the 'net either.

CNN is pushing the idea that this is ether US or some other countries secret military stuff.
That is what I believe as well.

What is tucker saying?
