A fascinating UFO photo, revealed recently by a former San Diego resident

At around 10:30 a.m. on March 21, 1987, there was a crash of an F-14 Tomcat fighter in a canyon just north of Scripps Ranch, San Diego, California.

The newswires reported that the crash occurred shortly after the jet had taken off from Miramar Naval Air Station.
Two pilots, after they ejected from the aircraft, said they heard 3 loud explosions as the jet plummeted to the ground.

The crash site was about one mile north of Scripps Miramar Ranch, about two miles northeast of Mira Mesa, and about 4 miles northeast of the air base.

About 65 firefighters from the San Diego Fire Department and Poway were summoned to the canyon area to battle a two-acre blaze triggered when the jet crashed.
Firefighters had trouble reaching the site because of the poor access roads through the rugged terrain.
The blaze continued for about three hours.

A Sheriff Department's helicopter, which had helped in transferring the pilots out of the area to the Naval air base, also aided firefighters by dumping water on hot spots.
Navy spokesman Lt. Ed Mapers said that "Quite a few people called us and they all said it was strange". "They said it was quiet and the aircraft was making no noise. It could lead you to believe possibly that the engines shut down".

Mr. Lucky Endo, a long-time area resident, said that he did not witness the crash itself nor did he see the crash site because it was on the other side of the hill.
But he heard the explosions and soon he witnessed two parachutes coming down.

He said that fire broke out but the fire engines may have had difficulty reaching the area.
A helicopter was used initially to put out the fire on the ground, he said.
Smoke from the crash was still visible for several hours.
According to him, the area was completely secured and became off limits to the public by the military, the police and the fire department.

What was most interesting was that Mr. Endo states that around 3:30 p.m., he began to observe an oval-shaped object hovering in the distance on the visible side of the hill, just above the tree lines.
It hovered in that area for about a minute or so.
Mr. Endo said he took two still photos at that time.
He did not take any videos. He only sent me two copies of his original photos. Therefore the images are not too clear but it is, nevertheless, most interesting.

His two still photos are presented in my short YouTube presentations.)

According to the news reports, the F-14 Tomcat fighter had crashed due to electric malfunctioning.
Mr. Endo theorizes that the pilots of the jet may have earlier encountered an unidentified craft during the training mission and may even have been chasing the object.
He believes that the object that appeared around 3:30 p.m. may have been observing the crash site after the ground fire was put out.
The Navy never released any final investigation results on this incident.

Here is the first still photo of the object which is enlarged in the latter portion of my short YouTube presentation:

Very interesting indeed. What's the odds a ufo is seen during a f-14 crash. Astronomical in my count.

Very interesting for sure, great image too.

I wonder if there is any documentation on the crash investigation now?

Why no original image link and just video being shot of a monitor? Having access to the original image scan would be the key in identifying this objects origin...

Did they have water towers in 1987? That's what it looks like to me.

Maybe one like this?

According to the video, the first picture was taken at 3:30 AM, even though it clearly during the day, and not much different in the lighting conditions compared to the second one?

Also, the first UFO could definitely be a parashoot. The second one is a bloob™.

That must be the worst possible way of showing a photo, a video of a video.

If you have a photo, even a bad copy, why don't you post it? And why post a video of a video instead of posting the first video?

It's almost as if you are doing that to make it difficult to identify what the photo shows.
