A former Navy pilot has claimed that encounters with unidentified flying objects were commonplace during his years of military service, as the US government finalizes a much-anticipated report on such sightings.
Once sequestered to the back pages of salacious tabloids, reports of UFOs, also known as UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena), have gone mainstream after the Pentagon confirmed the authenticity of leaked footage showing a US jet interacting with a mysterious object. Since then, the US military has opened up about the taboo subject. Last week, the Defense Department confirmed that a video of an incident that reportedly occurred off the California coast in 2019 was authentic.
With footage of the bizarre phenomena now public, some service members who claim to have come in contact with UAPs have begun speaking to the media.
In a new ‘60 Minutes’ report, former Navy pilot Lieutenant. Ryan Graves said that UAP sightings were part of his daily routine. Graves told the outlet that pilots training off the Atlantic Coast came in contact with unidentified objects “every day for at least a couple of years.”
