November 2004, 90 miles of the coast of Mexico near San Diego, California, the Nimitz Carrier Strike Group was conducting routine training and aerial defense exercises when unexplained events occurred. No one could have predicted what would soon confront the world's most advanced naval war ships and fighter jets. Aerial craft would appear that forever changed all those that encountered them. The answers to the question of “what are they?” remains unanswered by the sailors and the US Gov. After years of cloaked secrecy the true story can finally be told. With multiple witnesses from the ships, their first hand testimony is impossible to deny. Our film features CGI re-creations as told by the sailors and naval aviators that witnessed them. Aside from the historical fictionalized dialog (no one recorded the radio conversations), the story itself is based on the facts of the case, including official US government docs, witness statements, news reports and official timelines.

I liked the part (even though it was third-hand information) where it was claimed that the raw IR footage of the Tic-Tacs supposedly showed clear detail, including some funky little appendages under the things themselves.

I saw this yesterday.
Still surprises me the navy released the footage.
I wonder if they will ever release the whole encounter?

The best part about this documentary is the confirmed technical details from some of the military officers that were manning the radars and broadcasting the positioning information.
"It descended from 24,000 feet to 50 feet above the water in 0.78 seconds."
Rough math that's somewhere around 20,800mph.
Humans have survived top speeds during space flight of up to 24,000mph relative to Earth.
The accelerations were probably in kill human territory though, because the Apollo crew didn't hit 24,000mph from a standstill, in one second.
One of the pilots suggested drones. The documentary makes this sound like a covert black project test, not aliens. I heard about some Area 51 drone testing and some "project Falcon" thing a long time ago, involving unmanned aerial vehicles. They wanted to get it up to Mach 20.
Very ambitious project. This was around the time that UFO Hunters filmed Area 51 overnight with HD cameras and caught something doing over Mach 3-4 just before landing.
The documentary makes me lean towards field testing of this Falcon project or one of it's successors.
Popping into a Navy aerial training zone for a real world test, seems like something we would do. Remember when they asked the training jet, what it's armament was?
I get the feeling, the jet would have been told to abort and come back, if it had any live missile ordnance onboard. Wouldn't want the F-18 to get lucky, and blow up a billion dollar super drone.
Drone? Yeah right.
