An ex-pilot from the US navy has said he witnessed UFOs every day for years, with the former lieutenant describing it as a security threat.
This comes after new footage has been released allegedly showing an unidentified object off the coast of San Diego back in July 2019, when the combat ship named the USS Omaha came face to face with a circular object as it slowly descended from the sky.
The encounter was captured on camera by crew members, which has since been released by investigative filmmaker Jeremy Corbell with media outlet Mystery Wire.
And a US fighter pilot even said his crew saw UFOs enter protected airspace 'hundreds' of times between 2015 and 2017.
Speaking about the incident, former Navy Lt. Ryan Graves told 60 Minutes: "I am worried, frankly. You know, if these were tactical jets from another country that were hanging out up there, it would be a massive issue.
"But because it looks slightly different, we're not willing to actually look at the problem in the face. We're happy to just ignore the fact that these are out there, watching us every day."
Graves added that the UFOs could be aircrafts kept secret by the US, or they could be something else altogether.
"This is a difficult one to explain. You have rotation, you have high altitudes. You have propulsion, right? I don't know. I don't know what it is, frankly," he said.
"I would say, you know, the highest probability is it's a threat observation program."
The Navy expert said it could also be tech from Russia or China, adding that it's more advanced than anything the US has.
Former DOD official Luis Elizondo added on the programme: "Imagine a technology that can do 600 to 700 G-forces, that can fly 13,000 miles an hour, that, that can evade radar and can fly through air and water and possibly space, and oh, by the way, has no obvious signs of propulsion, no wings, no control surfaces and yet still can defy the natural effects of Earth's gravity.
"That's precisely what we're seeing."
