Several mistaken assumptions here. I think the most important part is that you admit you are being selective in what you think needs an explanation. Obviously a mundane explanation will be an easier fit if you trim the unconventional and difficult aspects. That is not skepticism, it is pseudo-skepticism. So thanks for making clear you are not interested in an explanation of the phenomenon as observed, but people have to be mistaken or lying instead. Yawn, with such an assumption you might as well argue there are no true UFOs (UFOs that remain unexplained after investigation and the likelihood of them staying unexplained in conventional terms increases).

I do tend to discount witness claims of sudden 90 degree turns. Even if they aren't lying, they are probably just misinterpreting what they see, or else it's a UAP like a light or a reflection which could make a 90 degree turn that would be impossible for a physical object.
90 degree turns are the least credible of all UFO related claims, as I've never seen any evidence to suggest otherwise and would be impossible for an aircraft.

Makes it look like it is super fast...when in reality it isnt.
