A fighter jet pilot who was one of the first to witness the now-famous Nimitz UFO believes it is “highly possible” the US government is in possession of alien technology.
Commander David Fravor was one of two United States Air Force (USAF) pilots to first encounter the “tic-tac” craft off the coast of San Diego in 2004.
The sighting would go on to become one of the most famous encounters ever caught on camera, with the Pentagon publicly acknowledging they had no idea what the object was.
While Fravor believes the UFO was not of this Earth, he is certain similar alien technology is being held by governments across the world.
Appearing on Lex Fridman’s podcast last week, he was asked whether it was possible that there was “out of this world” aircraft or beings in possession of governments around the world
“It’s highly possible, if you look at all the sightings,” he said.
“If you look at Project Blue Book – there were how many thousands of sightings?”
Project Blue Book r to a study of UFOs conducted by the USAF between 1952 and 1970.
Fravor continued: “10% or 15% they still can’t explain and our Tic-Tac was one of them.
“The government has come out and said ‘we don’t know what that was’.
“Of that 15% that we don’t know of these thousands, what are the chances that not one of them crashed somewhere on the globe and was recovered?
“I don’t care if it was an intact system or you have pieces of a metal we can’t explain or some biological matter.
“Is there is a chance that a foreign government, or our government, or someone in the globe of 7 billion people, has something that is not from this world, something that is manufactured?
“It could be a drone. If that’s the case, you would think something is out there and we have it that we can’t explain.”
