Most people who have been following the UAP/UFO story since the 2017 New York Times article (Glowing Auras and ‘Black Money’: The Pentagon’s Mysterious U.F.O. Program, Ralph Blumenthal, Leslie Kean, and Helene Cooper) are well aware that, well, this story has legs.
In a few weeks, the Pentagon and the Director of National Intelligence are expected to submit their report on the subject to the Senate Select Committee for Intelligence. And in the meantime, the story has finally been picked up by the MSM (CBSNews – 5/16/2021):
[60 Minutes] correspondent Bill Whitaker reported on unidentified aerial phenomena, or UAPs, more commonly known as UFOs.
Whitaker interviewed two former Navy pilots, Cmdr. Dave Fravor and Lt. Cmdr. Alex Dietrich, who said they witnessed something “unsettling” and unexplainable while flying over the Pacific Ocean in November 2004. Fravor is a graduate of the TOPGUN naval flight program. He was a commander of the F/A-18F squadron on the USS Nimitz at the time of the encounter.
Dietrich, a former F/A-18F pilot, has never before spoken publicly about what she saw that day. “It was unidentified. And that’s why it was so unsettling to us. Because we weren’t expecting it. We couldn’t classify it,” said Dietrich.
