This secret NATO HTA mine-tracker was tested and filmed at Cellina river bed test site near Aviano NATO air base. It is using the coanda effect with jet propulsion which was first demonstrated in the fifties by John Frost with Avro VZ-9-AV Avrocar. For a closer look at the exact place it was hovering on the video go to Google: then choose "Maps" and enter cordinates in "Search maps: 46.13701,12.683201 Then choose "satelite" and zoom in. The Nato cameraman was filming from the east river side.
It was launched at coordinates 46.140872,12.678566 and flew 2 miles south then 2 miles west and landed safely at Aviano Nato air base.
It is clearly visible in front of the Experimental Flight Hangar at Aviano Nato Air Base: Go to Google Maps and enter cordinates in "search maps": 46.040591,12.606849
Then choose "satellite" and zoom in.
if this video were fake its a hell of a job to do so many keframes to animate the ufo and keep it in syncro with the foreground movement, im a visual effects producer and i know what im talking about CGI (computer generated images) are so hard to give them a real look, even in expensive movie productions sometimes you can tell they are not real sometimes they look cheesse, this one looks great
This isn't an Italian Air Force video. This is an evident hoax shown on TV during the program "Studio Aperto".

It definitely seems to block the searchlight beams. The small light circles around it - are they supposed to be air bursts from the artillery? Never heard anyone describe them as lights on the craft. In fact the newspaper articles didn't describe it as anything.
Normally, they'd scramble some jets, and they alerted a squadron, but they remained grounded. They were described as 'objects' (note the plural) and they were moving but slowly.
To me theories they were balloons seem silly. Balloons don't block searchlights or fly in echelon.
I have a bit of suspicion that someone knew what they were - thus the decision not to scramble some planes. It seems strange to just start a barrage before identifying what was flying.

The number and variety of reports, pretty much all of which are conflicting, indicate that there's a very good chance there was nothing in the air over LA that night but AAA bursts and searchlight beams. The reports were coming from a panicked populace. Remember the Halloween broadcast of War of the Worlds? People were reporting Martians in their backyard!

Then we have the classic 'zoom off' into the distance. To me, there's several 'tells', though it is pretty well done.
