The above quote comes from a
declassified United States defence agency
report detailing a UFO encounter that occurred over Iran in
It's one of many examples outlined in thousands of pages
of UFO documents that have been released by dozens of
governments from all over the world. This type of occurrence is
a common one, where UFOs are tracked on radar, as well as
visually confirmed by military pilots, who are then sent out to
take a closer look.
Another example of a common
encounter occurred on December 16th, 1978, by the Chilean Air
"Two pilots on a training mission, each flying an F5 fighter
aircraft, tracked the object on their airborne radar. It gave a
return equal to ten or more aircraft carriers - except this
object was in the air, not floating on the water.
assumed his radar equipment was faulty, until he learned that
the other pilot was also getting the same return. Not only this,
but ground radar from a nearby airport also picked up the object
and confirmed its huge size.
The pilots also saw the object
with their own eyes. One pilot later said that at a distance
of twenty miles, it looked 'like a plantain banana swathed
The pilots were frightened, having no missiles or
weapons. As they approached the massive
object, which had been motionless all this while, it took
off at an unimaginable speed.
All at once, it vanished from
the three radar screens."

list of encounters from these documents where pilots describe
such objects literally goes on and on, and the pictures below
are a good example of what various military pilots have
described throughout the decades. This is something that has
happened scores of times and continues to this day.
The pictures below come from
investigator/researcher Alex Mistretta.
Apparently, they are from a United States Navy submarine, taken
in March of 1971.
The Submarine was the Navy's USS
Trepang (SSN 674). The submarine came upon the object by "accident," as they were in the region on a routine joint
military and scientific expedition.
Officer John Klika was the one who
initially spotted the object with the periscope.
I am not saying that these pictures
are real, in fact, they might not be. The point here is to give
readers a taste of what military pilots commonly describe, and
what is commonly picked up on military radar.
That's why I wanted to show these
pictures in the first place, to spark your imagination with what
could be 'fake' pictures, of a very real phenomenon, and for
those who have not had the experience of seeing something like
"Behind the scenes, high ranking Air Force
officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through
official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to
believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense."
Former head of CIA, 1960
"This thing has gotten so highly-classified…
it is just impossible to get anything on it.
I have no idea who controls the flow of
need-to-know because, frankly,
I was told in such an emphatic way that it was none of
my business that I've never tried to make it to be
my business since.
I have been interested in this
subject for a long time and I do know that whatever the Air
Force has on the subject is going to remain highly

"In one of the cases during the cold war,
1961, there were about 50 UFOs in formation flying South
from Russia across Europe.
The supreme allied commander was very
concerned and was about ready to press the panic button when
they turned around and went back over the North Pole.
They decided to do an investigation and they
investigated for three years and they decided that with
absolute certainty that four different species, at least,
have been visiting this planet for thousands of years.
There's been a lot more activity in the past
two decades, especially since we invented the atomic bomb.
They are very concerned about that and if we will use it
again, because the whole cosmos is in unity and it affects
not just us but
other people in the Cosmos.
They're very much afraid that we might start
using atomic weapons again and this would be very bad for
us, and them also."
