Two months ago, an Australian newspaper submitted a Freedom of Information (FOI) request to its government seeking files pertaining to UFO sightings across the country.
Government officials have just come back empty handed. The UFO files, they said, seem to have gone missing.
“The files could not be located and Headquarters Air Command formally advised that this file is deemed lost,” the Australia Department of Defense’s FOI assistant director, Natalie Carpenter, told the Sydney Morning Herald, the newspaper that made the request.
Audio recently obtained and released to the public of a UFO encounter is making its rounds on the internet, and no one can explain this one. The rather bizarre incident occurred in the skies above Arizona last month and provides a first-hand account of evidence the FAA cannot or will not explain.
In spite of the exchanges, which are thought to have taken place over the span of just 6 minutes, the incident doesn’t appear to have ever been formally written up by aviation authorities, despite the seemingly invisible presence of a UFO detected by two separate aircraft in a highly trafficked airspace.
The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) has no idea what this strange airborne mystery was either. They attempted to explain that the FAA wasn’t aware of any unusual aircraft or weather balloon experiments in the area on the day that could account for what the pilots saw.
“Other than the brief conversation between two aircraft, the controller was unable to verify that any other aircraft was in the area. We have a close working relationship with a number of other agencies and safely handle military aircraft and civilian aircraft of all types in that area every day, including high-altitude weather balloons,” the FAA’s statement read.
“I couldn’t make it out if it was a balloon or whatnot, but it was just really beaming light or had a big reflection and several thousand feet above us going the opposite direction.” When asked if it was a Google balloon, the Airbus simply responds, “Doubtful.”
“I don’t know what it was, it wasn’t an airplane but it was… the path was going in the opposite direction.” Moments later, the Airbus pilot confirms that he too has witnessed whatever the strange object is.
As The Drive points out, the region in which these sightings took place is nestled in the midst of numerous military and air force facilities and is an area “known for being highly active with military aircraft, and even possibly clandestine aircraft that remain under a cloak of [government] secrecy.”
Of course, that’s only one explanation, and since the FAA already said that there were no other aircraft in the area at the time of the sighting, it makes the possibility of the UFO being a top-secret government flying machine even less likely. But at this point, who knows. We are already aware that the government lies to us about almost everything, why would we expect UFOs and secret government planes to be any different?
New evidence offers great detail of the bizarre event and provides unprecedented insight into how such a unique incident is dealt with in real time.
Last November, The War Zone posted an exclusive story detailing a bizarre incident involving an unidentified aircraft that transited the skies of the Pacific Northwest in the early evening of October 25th, 2017. What started as a radar target moving at very high speed over Northern California turned into a series of eyewitness accounts made by nearby airline pilots traveling northward over Oregon. Even F-15 fighters were launched to intercept the mysterious intruder that quickly became invisible to radar.
Now, through the Freedom of Information Act, we present what could be one of the most insightful instances of official documentation surrounding such an encounter that had already been confirmed to have occurred by both the FAA and the USAF. These materials include fascinating audio recordings of radio transmissions and phone calls made as the incident was unfolding, as well as pilot interviews, and conversations between FAA officials made in the aftermath of the highly peculiar incident.
The former head of a Pentagon program to understand the mysteries of UFOs has said that such objects visiting Earth had been ‘proved beyond reasonable doubt’.
Speaking to The Telegraph, former Intelligence Officer Luis Elizondo said that unidentified flying objects of advanced capabilities have been seen ‘lots’ over the years.
Elizondo, who presided over the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program until two months ago, told The Independent: ‘I think it’s pretty clear this is not us, and it’s not anyone else, so one has to ask the question where they’re from.’
The aftermath of SpaceX’s launch of satellites into space from Southern California was witnessed across state lines and hundreds of miles. Many, however, did not know what to make of the stunning sights lighting up the sky.
Falcon 9 launched 10 satellites to low-Earth orbit Friday night, from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, about 158 miles northwest of Los Angeles. Falcon 9 is a family of two-stage-to-orbit medium lift launch vehicles.
Some residents in Southern California, unaware of the launch, took to social media to share their experiences.
“I think I just saw a UFO wtf if you in Compton did y’all just see that in the sky ?? We need answers #Aliens#ufo#compton never seen anything like that !!” an instagrammer from Compton in Los Angeles County wrote.
In an interview with Bill Clinton in 2015, Jimmy Kimmel asked the former president about UFOs. “If I were President–and I never will be,” he said, drawing laughter, “the first thing I would do after putting my hand on the Bible and taking that oath to serve the country, I probably wouldn’t finish the oath, I would run to the White House, I would demand to see all the classified files on UFOs….did you do that?”
Clinton, ever the politician, gave an earnest answer, admitting that he’d always had an interest in the subject of extraterrestrials and had invested considerable effort into discovering whether they had ever visited the Earth. His answer: they haven’t. Would he tell us if they had? He would.
Then he essentially restated the same weird thing Reagan said in 1987 at the United Nations — that maybe it would be better off if aliens did arrive because it’s probably the only thing that could unite the people of Earth.
WASHINGTON — In the $600 billion annual Defense Department budgets, the $22 million spent on the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program was almost impossible to find.
Which was how the Pentagon wanted it.
For years, the program investigated reports of unidentified flying objects, according to Defense Department officials, interviews with program participants and records obtained by The New York Times. It was run by a military intelligence official, Luis Elizondo, on the fifth floor of the Pentagon’s C Ring, deep within the building’s maze.
