Unidentified: Naval Pilots Witness UFOs (Season 1) | History

NARRATOR: Lieutenant
Ryan Graves has spent a decade
training Navy pilots and flying bombing missions. As a combat section
lead, he twice deployed to the Middle East
and holds a degree in aerospace engineering. Go ahead. Let’s– let’s start
from the beginning. Well, simply
put, I don’t really know where the beginning is. NARRATOR: In the summer
of 2014, Lieutenant Graves was based out of
Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia Beach. [MUSIC PLAYING] Lieutenant Graves says his
squadron, the Red Rippers, was running training
exercises up and down the East Coast when
they started to pick up mysterious radar tracks. We didn’t really think a lot
of them other than the fact that maybe they were just– just a part of the radar
itself, not necessarily natural physical object. Was there any difference
between the aircraft you were flying in 2015 versus
what he was flying in 2004? Any– RYAN GRAVES: We had upgraded
electronics, radar systems. It’s a generational difference. It’s a big deal, yeah. Huge, huge increase
in capabilities. OK. NARRATOR: The pilots wondered
if their new radar system was malfunctioning until they saw
one of the unidentified objects up close. Walk me through that. Now, were you there, or was
it one of your colleagues? It was one of my
colleagues, so I didn’t hear about it until they landed. Did he give you
size, color, texture? It was basically a
cube inside of a sphere, where the points
of the cube were touching outside of the sphere. [MUSIC PLAYING] We’ve got now two
different things. You guys got cubes with balls. Or on the West Coast,
we got flying Tic Tacs. [WHOOSHING] RYAN GRAVES: You
will sometimes get phantom tracks,
where it’s seeing something that’s not there. That’s what we thought
they were 100% of the time until we would see
them physically, being tally with them
with their eyeballs. It’s not that I’m seeing
a bright physical object. I’m literally just seeing
a flash shine out there. And wherever we were,
they were there. So that could mean two things. That could mean they
were already there, or they were following
the strike group. NARRATOR: By 2015,
Lieutenant Graves claims his pilots were
encountering bizarre craft almost every time they flew. RYAN GRAVES: You know, it’s
one thing if one person sees one of these objects. We’re like, OK, that’s crazy. When you go out there
every day and you see them and your brothers and
sisters and other squadrons are seeing them, then, you
know, it’s like, OK, well, this is probably some type of
maybe drone thing or something that they’re testing out. It wasn’t until someone
actually saw one go in between two aircraft at a
close range by within 150 feet that it was starting
to get worrisome. NARRATOR: Lieutenant Graves says
when one of the objects nearly caused a terrifying
mid-air collision, [ENGINES WHINING]
[WHOOSH] the senior pilots in his squadron decided to act. At this point, we’re like,
something needs to be done. We submit a safety report
to the Navy Safety Center. They’ve been seeing these
things for two months. Multiple people have seen them. Multiple people
have tracked them. You get one that
splits a section enough to send out your mishap
report to the Safety Center. Did anyone contact you
and say, what is going on? RYAN GRAVES: No. No investigation, no nothing? No. We have video I’d
like you to see. Without telling you
anything about it, I’m going to be
curious your thoughts, and you can tell
me what you see. NARRATOR: These three UFO videos
were released by the Pentagon. The one on the left
has already been identified as the 2004 incident
involving David Fravor. The source of the other
two had remained a mystery. This video has come
to be known as Go Fast and shows an object speeding
just above the water. The other is known as Gimbal. The sensor is
on a– on a Gimbal underneath the–
the aircraft, and it can rotate to maintain a track. You never forget those voices. You know those voices? I know those guys, yeah. NARRATOR: It’s a breakthrough
in the investigation. For the first time,
a pilot has confirmed that the two unidentified
videos, Gimbal and Go Fast, were taken by Navy jets
from the Theodore Roosevelt. We’re getting ready for a
deployment, so we do work-ups along the Eastern seaboard. And these objects
kind of came with us. NARRATOR: Lieutenant Graves says
both Gimbal and Go Fast were filmed within weeks of each
other over the Atlantic off Jacksonville, Florida. And as Lieutenant Graves’s
squadron was preparing to deploy to the Middle East,
they were seeing so many mysterious objects, they
started sharing the videos when they got back on ship. They were also very
excited about what happened, and then they were
heading down to watch the full video in its entirety. There’s parts of
this video that we can talk about that aren’t here. Let’s walk through that. So this object was
significantly larger than the one you’re used to seeing. NARRATOR: Lieutenant Graves
says the Gimbal video is just part of a longer
higher resolution video he was shown on the ship. It included several
smaller craft, the kind he was more familiar with. They were essentially flying
themselves in a formation. And then behind those was
the object that you see here. And I’m not the world’s
greatest drawer, but as you can see
here, it almost looks like a gyroscope, right,
the way it moves, the points coming out of the top
of the bottom of what appears to be a disk
or– or at least a central mass on the object. So these objects were
seen in one direction. The five at some point basically
just turn themselves around with some type of radius,
a turn, as a unit, and started flying
another direction. At this time is pretty
much where you see this video, where these
are now out of the picture and it’s just this
guy that’s stationary. Is that why they
refer to them as there’s a whole fleet of them?
– Yep. OK. So there wasn’t a
whole fleet of these. There was just all
these little guys. And there’s the one object
which we had never seen before, which was significantly larger. NARRATOR: Lieutenant Graves
says the way the larger craft suddenly rotates at 90
degrees is unlike anything he had ever seen. It’s just basic
airplane physics. When your wings are underneath
you and you’re flying along, you have 100% of your lift. And if you turn yourself all
the way like this, kind of knife blading, you have
none of the lift that your wings
will provide you. So the fact that he would just
get himself on his wing tip with no turn and by staying
at the exact same point isn’t how aircraft work. LUIS ELIZONDO: Ryan Graves
is an aerospace engineer when he’s not a pilot. So when Ryan is telling
you that there is something up there that he
doesn’t know how it works and it is not
one of our aircraft, you need to listen. What’s fascinating and
interesting about these objects is that they’re up
there when we take off, they’re doing their thing for
our hour, hour and a half, maybe two hour flight,
and then we land. And my buddy that
takes off an hour later is seeing the same things. This is important. Now we’re looking
at something that can stay stationary
over a geographic point in 120 knots of wind– –can rotate around and then
can accelerate, go supersonic. As a Top Gun guy, have you seen
something like that before? [LAUGHS] No. No, I’m– I’m– I’m pretty baffled right now. [MUSIC PLAYING]

  • It's just me coming back with my posse from the future with the message S.T.A.Y

  • They are being seen out at sea, maybe they are taking water tests or something?

  • They are just socially awkward 🙄

  • Full Episode?

  • I don't know Rick…

  • I think we're flying these things, and keeping it from the public. This is the kind of tech that could free us… and the powers that be can't be assed with free folk.

  • Im not smart or a conspiracy theorist by trade; just saying if you believe bob lazar you could also believe the cia is flying those ships too make us or an enemy think/do something.

  • 2:38 why is there suddenly an Air Force F-15 in the middle of this F-18 montage?

  • It was a training exercise… the US air force trying out their new drones

  • at this point these alien craft are most likely unmanned drones. The days where they were possibly manned by aliens is probably long over if they ever were.

  • I have a feeling that we are not too far off from the government and scientists opening up to the citizens of the world that we are not alone and to get ready to accept it. That these beings have greatly enhanced capabilities and that it’s in our interest to initiate contact with them to learn about their concepts of physics, so that we can be better positioned to exist in a universe of competition among beings that are very different from us. But, I think that it’s a bad mistake to do this.

  • Joker was overrated

  • They are probably just military drones that have top secrete avionics. Considering that the SR-71 was built in the late 50’s, and its capabilities were so insanely advanced compared to anything of its time… one can only imagine what lockheed Martin and other military aerospace corporations are construction now in 2019 under complete military secrecy. The fact that people believe aliens built this thing is silly…

  • Ok so basically 40% of this comment section has witnessed a ship close to the design of this, which means an alien race or at least a highly advanced drone system has been surveying our country for over a decade


  • Möbius one Fox 2

  • I saw one of these myself. I didn't bother telling anyone until this day because I know no one would take it seriously.

  • To Fraver – Have you ever seen anything like this before?

    Fraver – no

    2004 – Am I a joke to you?

  • Have to wonder if it's just drones powered by some fancy ion wind motor.

  • Resistance is futile.

  • who is here from the Joe Rogan podcast?

  • The way it's moving also matches up work Bob Lazar's description of these saucers. It has a similar shape to how he described and just as Bob said it is flying "belly side forward" because the gravity propulsion comes out of the bottom and points in whatever direction the pilot wishes to move the ship

  • they cropped it out of the video. the ufo ship is pitched black?

  • people better start to take this stuff serious or who knows what will happen and it is so easy to make fun of this stuff to pass it off as a joke but im 49 now and in 1996 i saw a oject in the sky and the next day i woke up with no memory and cuts and holes in my body and have no idea were they came from . the only people that know about it is my wife me and my doctor so i know they are real and we better wake up and wake up real fast because this is no joke !!!!!

  • Its just goku flying by saying hi

  • Notice the emission of mass energy around the UFO on radar around it not behind it like conventional

  • The thing is that the aircraft that aircraft is our aircraft we have those all the all those things that are floating in the air all over the world United States has that technology I take red Vedic Pulsar propulsion magnetic propulsion Atomic repulsion

  • That's just a fly or a bug on the lense of the camera underneath the fighter jet , end off, these pilots even mess about with campers out in the wilderness sometimes to make them think their jets are ufo, if it was aliens why do they only seem to visit america? And around government pilots?????

  • Remember how all these years they've ridiculed, belilittled, ruined careers, and called the people that reported ufo's "conspiracy theorists" they ruined peoples lives! The military men that reported stuff in the past were credible witnesses that the media and establishment spent years trying to discredit them …and they want us to believe it now … Why??? 👀☝hmmm …

  • Hear me out, so, apparently these things have been showing up for hundreds of years and they don't seem to interact much with humans. Apparently. So, what if they are just a form of "TELESCOPE". You can only see so far into space if the strategy is to capture as much light as you can from a deep space object. So what if you can just send a camera up close through warp speed technology to observe distance planets in HD Earth 360. Boom. Let that sink in.

  • It may not be "alien" in nature. It`s possible it`s a remnant of an ancient earth civilisation living under the ocean or ??? Another possibility is they are from another dimension.

  • Illegal immigrants

  • Can I watch the full season online?

  • The gimbal UFO is an Alpha Centauri fighter spacecraft it also called Black knight 😐 totally benevolent alien race .

  • Space force it is

  • 4:02

  • Aliens must be racist race class….. They only wanna show up around US soil, air and waters 🙁

  • Why do I get the notion after seeing this thing rotate on screen, that a small bug or fruit fly somehow got trapped between the lenses? Had it not been for VFR visuals by the pilot (UFO hovering over water and creating a wake) and not just instrument observation…and confirmed by a wing man…I would think these pilots had been duped by mother nature,


  • when are people gonna wake up?

  • I once met an Alien on a farm he told me his name was Pedro I realized he was an illegal alien

  • soft acceptance

  • American r da only people in this planet that have more UFO sighting dat means ufo don't exist

  • The one video the guy says going against the wind which was at 120 knots. Seems a little fast, that's over 135mph.

  • Aliens come to America and ask: "How did that guy there become your president?" ….."We elected him!"…."We´re out, good luck with that."

  • Aliens are demons give your life too Christ and repent read a Bible and learn the Truth

  • that old guy was on the joe rogan podcasts so is he lying about that story he told

  • It's Amazon Prime Delivery.

  • These videos are Proof of another civilization…….the camera systems on those Jets only track REAL physical objects…..there's ZERO chance of it being an "anomaly"……Period. The jets also couldn't get a "distance" read……meaning the craft was actively Jamming the jet's Lidar.

  • Area 51 has the answer's we seek

  • Yo why don’t they just start putting go-pros on jets 😂👌🏻

  • The DARK ENERGY ONES (Committed only to one's SELF) on this planet are running to hide under a rock at this point now that this is coming out. Many people in the real world are AWAKENING as discussions are taking place at work and social functions. Many have come up to me that have seen the videos (craft) and are frightened at first, but after I tell them how much of their tax payer money went into that radar system built by Boeing and Raytheon, they begin to settle down and accept the fact: THEY ARE HERE!

  • Oh, PLEASE!!!! Mexican Air Force gave chase to a whole squadron of these ufos back in 2003. Just look it up. Do a seach with ……..
    Video OVNI en Campeche, Fuerza aérea México 2003

  • Was there a speed difference between 2014 2015 jets?

  • what is our immigration policy on aliens?

  • the object seen in the HUD..looks like the original F-19 stealth model…or it could be a mini drone

  • I'm not surprised. Government funds go to both making military crafts and buying civilian military crafts.
    What happens when you have a group of rich people funding aircrafts that aren't intended to be sold go the governments.

  • The guy who flew the jet is sitting right there. Why are they talking to this guy who wasnt there? wtf lmao

  • If its Aliens why would they be just flying around playing games with our military jets? Youre going to travel thousands of light years, cross dimensions or travel through time and space to spook some primitive beings with your super advanced technology? For what exactly? Its like the Spanish sailing circles around primitive South American tribes out in the ocean for no reason.

  • I think these things are up there everyday and our Navy is not releasing the info. President Trump right now needs to sign an executive order to release all classified UFO info and flight footage to the public.

  • I let off unidentifiable objects in my toilet daily

  • These videos have been debunked… search YouTube for possible explanations. Just because it’s unexplained doesn’t mean aliens.

    If Aliens were visiting they wouldn’t hang out over the ocean messing with Navy pilots…

    The reason it’s called a gimbal video is because the gimbal rotates not the balloon… you can see it’s floating not flying… come on sheeple!

  • That UFO is normally called a bug. Sorry.

  • It’s hilarious in 2019 they still have to put recreation in the corner of the video that demonstrates what they saw lmao

  • I forgot what they're are planning but I know there's a timeline of news the government release. First step is conspiracy, second is denial, third is acceptance.

    I believe they're just waiting for the boomers to die out and alot more people go into atheism to finally say, yes we there are aliens so that way, the whole world won't riot.

  • And this is exactly what I saw in the summer of 1991 in Russia, at the Caspian sea beach at around 2am, they were flying very high, passing above cirrus clouds. The whole triangular shaped formation, turning 180 degrees after crossing the whole sky from horizon to horizon, at the same altitude, then accelerating so fast that they might have been doing 30 miles per second before disappearing. I even have a film picture of the two flying orbs, following the formation

  • Aliens are looking for intelligent life, on the wrong planet…

  • Who's downvoting this? The CIA? Men in Black? Skeptics? Is decent video footage & credible testimony from an F-18 fighter pilot just not convincing enuff for some ppl? SMH

  • Just because your smart dont make you crediable. Plenty of highly intelligent people are pathological liars.

  • Everyone wants to be special and how do you become special fast? You have a special encounter with special brings from a special place and no one can prove it. – Joe Rogan 2019

  • People are out there trying to nail these aliens and I’m just trying to catch this mosquito flying around my room.

  • Who's here from Joe Rogan's Podcast?

  • Anti gravity. We've probably accomplished it decades ago maybe a century ago.

  • properly just some experimental craft doubt its ufo's lol

  • I don't get it, I thought fravor is the guy who followed the Gimbal, why in here he is acting like he has never seen it before?

  • Just ask Mr. Kesheh and Iranian about this 🙂

  • Scientist = we saw U.F.O
    aliens = let them to be a MAD people😂😂

  • Can you say limited hangout? Aliens are real. This show only gives you what the establishment wants you to have. Half truth.

  • I think the U.S. government has military interaction with aliens. Or we're catching and torturing a random alien to steal his technology.

  • Wasn't this debunked already?

  • Bob Lazar said they fly with their bottoms pointed to the direction they are flying to

  • How come fraver said he'd never seen anything like that before? Wasn't he meant to have witnessed the nimitz UFO?

  • It seems as if these aliens, or whatever you want to call them, are here for observation or a fact-finding mission. It explains why they aren't hostile and why they flee when spotted. I can't say, however, that I'm interested in what happens when we fire on one of them. From everything we know, their technology could wipe us out in seconds.

  • Were they recording the object with a flight video recorder at 2:45?

  • It is dimensional anomaly

  • The rotation in the gimbal video has already been essentially debunked. It's still a "UFO", but the "physics-defying" maneuvers are actually just a byproduct of the gimbal adjusting itself to accommodate the plane's roll. You'll notice the object doesn't start rotating until the plane does. Someone even managed to recreate the effect in their garage.

  • 5:24 Protoss Oracle detected.

  • I was hoping LT Graves would have said…

    "Because I was inverted."

  • Why does Joe Rogan's podcast seem so much more legitimate than something the History channel airs?

  • oh my goddddd he has a degree in aerospace engineering!!! shudders

  • What ever happened to "Unidentified aircraft, you are in United States airspace etc…"? Obviously we have no control. It is just an illusion the government gives us that we are safe.

  • How can I share a video of Orbs

  • Where or who can I share a video of Orbs on U tube

  • I am wondering what does people who didn't believe in Aliens have to say now ?

  • Yeah, no real footage. I say no

  • Age Of Aquarius 🛸👽
    KC Native 🐍🦇

  • Wouldn’t it be , the spheres were touching the outer inside of the cube. Just saying. One radar operative said there were a hundred of them suspended in a type of formation.

  • i love the actual footage… reminds me of my graphics on my TRS-80

  • One thing about this really bothers me. Towards the end they say the object was able to sit stationary for hours in a 120 knot wind. Now 120 knots is equal to 138 miles per hour. So the objects (and the fighters) are out there fighting winds equivalent to a category 4 hurricane? And this fact is never mentioned except in passing? There's something wrong here, or am I missing something?

  • If anybody should see them it should be Norad.

  • We really need to consider, (if this is real- no hoax) how scary this really is.
