60 Minutes reports on UFO activity
On November 14, 2004, Dave and Alex were training with the Nimitz Carrier Strike Group when an advanced radar on one of their training ships had been detecting what operators called “multiple anomalous aerial vehicles”, descending eighty-thousand feet in less than a second.
At first, the pilots were circling an area of whitewater when they saw something strange above the water: “We saw this little white Tic-Tac-looking object… and it’s just kind of moving above the whitewater area,” Dave noted.
“No predictable movement, no predictable trajectory,” said Alex Dietrich.
The object had no markings, no wings, and no exhaust plumes. As soon as Dave tried to cut the UAP off, the object accelerated so quickly that it seemed to disappear, he recalled. Seconds later, the ship saw the UAP on its radar again and it was around 60 miles away.
Bill spoke with many people who confirmed that unidentified means there’s no evidence that these phenomena are extraterrestrial, in fact, they are a potential national security risk, because the technology seems far beyond what the U.S. can currently produce.
