Many US fighter pilots reported seeing strange objects flying at very high speeds, some even hitting it.
Unidentified flying objects (UFOs) appear almost daily in the east coast of the United States from summer 2014 to March 2015, one of them is like a gyroscope moving against the wind. US naval pilots say these objects do not have engines or exhaust pipes, but can reach as high as 9,000 m and reach super-sound speeds.

"These things fly all day," said Captain Ryan Graves , F / A-18 Super Hornet fighter pilot who served 10 years in the US Navy. He reported what he saw to the Pentagon and the parliament.
In early 2015, US Navy aircraft cameras recorded a UFO flying over the sea, the pilots were surprised at what they saw."Oh, what's that?" , one said. "Look at it flying!"
No official in the US Department of Defense says this is an alien object. Graves and four naval pilots said they saw UFOs in 2014 and 2015, departing from the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt to participate in drills from Virginia to Florida.

These cases are reported to the Pentagon's little-known Advanced Aerospace Aeronautical Identity Program. Experts in the program analyzed radar data, videos and words from officers from the aircraft carrier Roosevelt.
The program started in 2007 and was largely funded at the request of Democratic MP Harry Reid, who led the Senate majority at the time. It was closed in 2012 due to lack of funding, but former leader Luis Elizondo said it was still continuing in other forms. The Pentagon this month admitted to secretly investigating UFOs.
Leon Golub, expert at the Harvard Astronomical Center -Smithsonian, said there is a theory that these are alien objects. However, some people make other hypotheses that are more realistic such as errors in the image and display system of fighters, atmospheric effects or pilots who have hallucinations due to information overload during the trip. High speed flight.
Graves was still unable to explain what he saw in the summer of 2014, when he was trained with another Super Hornet pilot as Captain Daniel Accoin, belonging to the VFA-11 "Red Rippers" squadron in Virginia.
Pilots began to pay attention to strange objects after the aircraft radar was upgraded."We are doing a very complicated task, gliding down from a height of more than 9,000 m. Having something in the air is a pretty big problem , " Graves said.
UFOs appear many times at an altitude of 9,000 m, 6,000 m, even close to the sea. They can accelerate, decelerate and then reach super-negative speed.
Accoin said he interacted twice with UFOs. For the first time, after the radar on the fighter caught a strange object, he let the plane fly below it for about 300 meters. However, Accoin only sees the UFO on the radar screen and cannot detect it with the naked eye.
A few days later, the radar on a training missile and the infrared camera of the fighter detected and clung to UFOs, but he still could not see it with his eyes. The pilots speculated that they belonged to a state-of-the-art, secret government drone program (UAV).
But then, the pilots saw the object with their naked eyes and almost collided with them. At the end of 2014, a pilot and teammate were flying about 30 meters apart in Virginia Beach, something flew between them. The pilots described it as a sphere that enveloped a cube."I almost hit it," the pilot told Graves.

The squadron was very concerned about this incident and submitted an air safety report to their superiors. They believed that the UFOs were not in the unmanned aircraft program because government officials could not send UAVs to the area they knew were pilots rehearsing.
The strange thing is that the video shows the UFOs accelerating to super-overshoot speed, abrupt stop and change direction immediately, which man-controlled flying devices cannot do."Speed is not a problem, but a sudden stop or rapid acceleration is hard to understand , " Graves said.
"We have helicopters that can stay in the air. We have planes that can fly as close to the ground or at a height of more than 9,000 meters. However, this object has all those characteristics. without a jet engine, there is also no exhaust airflow ".
Pilots refuse to speculate on what objects are."We are here to work, not to 'compose' mysterious stories , " Graves stressed.
