A number of pilots in the United States Navy reported that they saw unidentified flying objects (UFOs) across US airspace between 2014 and 2015.
One of them, Lt. Ryan Graves said he saw UFOs in the airspace off the east coast between Florida and Virginia almost daily.
These UFOs reached heights of up to 30,000 feet and flew at hypersonic speeds without leaving visible engine exhausts, Graves said The New York Times.
Graves said he had reported what he had seen about the Pentagon and Congress.
The story of The Times contains a video of two encounters with naval pilots who were reportedly on UFO & # 39; s.
The videos contain visual radar and voice recordings of pilots who are surprised at what they see.
& # 39; What is the (expletive) thing? & # 39; one pilot is heard because he is unable to positively identify an object on his radar
A number of pilots have reported that objects flew between 2014 and 2015 at altitudes of up to 30,000 feet above the east coast
Pilots said the flying objects could suddenly stop and turn fast while they reached hypersonic speeds
& # 39; These things would be there all day, & # 39; said Graves.
& # 39; At the speeds we observed, 12 hours in the air is 11 hours longer than we expected. & # 39;
Graves said the most unusual thing about these UFOs was their ability to suddenly stop, strike a dime and immediately accelerate to hypersonic speeds.
& # 39; Speed does not kill you, & # 39; said Graves. & # 39; Stop does it. Or acceleration. & # 39;
In 2014, a pilot who controls a Super Hornet fighter jet reported that he almost collided with a UFO.
The pilot remembered that something similar to a & # 39; sphere that encased a cube & # 39; flew between two fighter jets that flew about 100ft apart.
Another pilot, Lieutenant Danny Accoin, said he saw a flying object on his radar, a missile system, and an infrared camera, but he couldn't see it in his helmet.
& # 39; I knew I had it, I knew it wasn't a fake hit, & # 39; said Accoin.
& # 39; (But) I couldn't pick it up visually. & # 39;
The pilots began to notice more activity after their radar systems were upgraded, but most thought they were false radar tracks.
The UFOs were seen in areas designated for hunter training, making it unlikely that they were commercial drones or other objects that were classified.
But none of the pilots or the Pentagon would speculate about what they believed the objects were.
& # 39; We are here to do work, with excellence, not inventing myths & # 39 ;, said Lt. Accoin.
The pilots' claims come a week after a defense ministry spokesperson reportedly confirmed the Pentagon's interest in UFO's, citing the agency's investigation of & # 39; unidentified air phenomena & # 39; .
According to a report from the New York Post, a representative confirmed that the US government was studying and investigating the occurrence of mysterious and unexplained aircraft as part of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program that was made public in 2017.
Media commentator and former British defense officer Nick Pope told the Post that the specific choice of words represents a major step forward in the way the government talks about unidentified aircraft.
& # 39; This new admission makes it clear that they have really studied what the public & # 39; UFO & # 39; s & # 39 ;, he told the Post.
& # 39; It also shows the British influence, because UAP was the term we used at the Ministry of Defense to get away from the baggage of pop culture that comes with the term & # 39; UFO & # 39;
The shift in terminology comes just weeks after the US Navy has unveiled new guidelines for collecting information on UFO sightings.
As stated by Politico, the guidelines are designed to make it easier for sailors to report UFO sightings amid fears that mysterious unidentified flying objects are actually & # 39; extremely advanced Russian aircraft & # 39; could be.
The Navy has reported that the number of & # 39; highly advanced aircraft & # 39; on its airspace.
Last week the Pentagon admitted that it had & # 39; unidentified air phenomena & # 39; had studied
In 2017, former Pentagon official, Luis Elizondo, made headlines when he described the existence of the UFO-focused Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program – a $ 22 million government operation that UFO & # 39; s studied
Among the sightings were reports from pilots of two Super Hornet fighters from the US Navy who saw a UFO during a training mission
& # 39; There have been a number of reports of unauthorized and / or unidentified aircraft that have entered different military-controlled ranges and designated airspace in recent years, & # 39; said a spokesman for the Navy Politics in April.
Over the past few years, the US government has shown an increasing willingness to acknowledge its research and interest in UFOs.
In 2017, former Pentagon official, Luis Elizondo, made headlines when he described the existence of the UFO-focused Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program – a $ 22 million government operation that UFO & # 39; s studied.
The mysterious program attempted to identify UFO sightings through US surveillance and eyewitness reports and then to determine & # 39; and determine whether that information poses a potential threat to national security & # 39 ;.
Among the sightings were reports from pilots of two Super Hornet fighters from the US Navy who saw a UFO during a training mission.
The pilots reportedly saw a mysterious vehicle, about 40ft long, oval and whitish, irregularly floating above the ground.
The vessel & # 39; did not have any feathers, wings or rotors & but ran at a mile per second. When pilots approached the object, it easily conquered the military jets.
Elizondo resigned from his position in 2017 in protest against what he has called excessive secrecy and internal opposition to the project.
Although the Pentagon officially stopped financing the project in 2012, the New York Times suggest that the program is still operational.
WHAT IS THE SECRET PENTAGON DEPARTMENT INVESTIGATION FOR UFO ATTACKS?
UFO enthusiasts have been arguing for decades that the US government has covered the existence of unidentified vessels with alien visitors.
The idea that a hush-hush government suit investigates observations and other bizarre phenomena formed the basis for the TV drama series The X-Files.
Now it seems that the cult series was not such an imagination.
The existence of the shady Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program was deliberately buried in the $ 600 billion (£ 448.76 billion) annual budget of the defense department, as well as the headquarters, deep in the labyrinthine Pentagon building.
Based on the fifth floor of C-ring, the secret department has spent years investigating reports of unidentified flying objects.
Although the Pentagon officially stopped financing the project in 2012, insiders told the New York Times that it is still active. And more intelligent experts who ran it, and politicians who supported it, do not emphasize her research in vain.
After examining countless reports from US soldiers of encounters between unknown objects and military planes, they are convinced that nothing in this world can explain them.
