Interesting opinion piece in The Hill regarding Navy pilots encountering UFOs.
For me, the primary takeaway is that these aviators apparently don’t believe the UFOs they observed and encountered were drones and balloons.
As one aviator explained, many of these encounters are taking place way out to sea, too far for typical drone or balloon traffic, and the UFOs also are performing in ways that defy any mundane classification.
Yeah, I think it’s a fair assumption that Naval aviators can tell the difference between a drone, a balloon, and a bona fide UFO.
At the same time, I still think all of this fits nicely into the terrestrial hypothesis. That is, these objects are operating in U.S. military training areas, they are being observed predominantly by U.S. military pilots, and their foreign counterparts are apparently not having similar encounters. Therefore, as crazy and counterintuitive as it might seem, these objects are likely secret U.S. military platforms that are unknown to the rest of the military.
