It's been on the news for the last couple days. Shot from a military fighter and both plane and UFO are in a moderate left turn. Intercept was off or near the California coast, and shows a dark object in the camera crosshairs.

Apparently the Government has a new program to research UFOs, and has spent $22 million so far to gather info utilizing military aircraft.

Maybe there'll be more on this in the coming days.
Very interesting...

Yeah saw the vid.

Other than a strange object I didn't see any kind of incredible acceleration or maneuvering by it which to me signifies something truly worth looking at.

They seemed to easily keep it within some sort of target lock, although they certainly didn't seem know what it was by the commentary.

also saw the "news about the ufo program"
This isn't really news the gov has a variety of programs to study UFO's - it has for decades.
Nice to see them actually cop to it vs continual denying it.

I have to suspect that with where drone technology has gone (they used them in Afghanistan, right? Even amazon is looking at advancing them for delivery, no?), and since I'd suspect that the machinery is more capable than the human in a seat... that advancements in unmanned vehicles allow some pretty sporty performance and some small and more optimized form factors. I'd suspect we will see even more "ufos" in the near term, as humans take advantage of the technologies to optimize aerial vehicles that can do pretty aggressive motions.

They should give clearance for the pilot to lock on and shoot at the next one.

No such thing as extra terrestrial life forms operating spacecraft within our atmosphere, if that was the context in which the term UFO is being used here. Although I am open to any presentation of solid proof beyond a reasonable doubt that may substantiate such claims.

Saw it on NBC news, so it's probably fake.

UFO - as I always say to my wife, what does the "U" stand for??

And where is the up-close video of them intercepting the "UFO"?

If it's "Unidentified", it's a UFO. Does not need to be extraterrestrial ...

I was about to say it's an unidentified craft - not other worldly ALIEN.


Though the unsung Forbidden Planed from the mid 50's was the forbearer of most everything tech in star wars and star trek ( and lost in space).
Some organic life form to come here would be like anyone on this forum winning the {powerball-lottery(e-10)}.
