(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Skeptics and believers are puzzled by a recent tape from Discovery+’s “UFO Witness.”
Pilots can be heard chatting with air traffic controllers and reporting several unexplained flying objects in the popular video. A pilot immediately phones the closest tower to ask about weirdly flying aircraft.
Mark Hulsey, a former fighter jet pilot, questions the tower, saying that the craft is flying in circles at a much higher altitude than he and has a couple of planes to his north.
“Do you know what those are?” he asks.
At the time, reportedly on August 18, Hulsey was a charter jet pilot just off the coast of Los Angeles. The controller can be heard being perplexed about the nature of the ship. In the next 30 minutes, one craft multiplied into three, and three crafts into seven.
“They just continue to circle about. I was a Marine Corps F-18 pilot, and I can assure you that despite doing many intercepts, I’ve never seen anything like this,” he stated on the show.
Ben Hansen, a former FBI agent who hosts UFO Witness, has recently made the tape available after requesting the recordings through a FOIA request.
According to Hansen, “several of these pilots are certain that the lights were not only traveling in one way but in both directions, which is very unusual for satellites.”
In Mark’s instance, they would approach from the north and then pass directly over his ship, requiring him to stoop to look at them through the canopy.
Hansen adds that on the August night, almost a dozen flights observed the same phenomena.
“More than 15 different commercial flights observed it. And if requested to do so by any investigation organizations, at least six pilots are willing to go on record with their identities and everything,” added Hansen.
“In this instance, a global phenomenon occurs from as far east as Miami and as far west as Japan. Pilots are witnessing it from halfway across the world, whatever it may be,” said Hansen.
Coincidentally, the Navy announced it would stop distributing UFO/UAP films shortly after the sightings were initially reported, citing concerns about national security measures.
The requested videos contain sensitive information relating to Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP), are classified, and are entirely exempt from disclosure under exemption 5 U.S.C. 552 (b)(1) following Executive Order 13526 and the UAP Security Classification Guide, according to the UAP Task Force’s response to DNS-36.
In a letter earlier this year, Gary Cason, the deputy director of the Navy’s FOIA office, stated. “The disclosure of this material compromises national security because it could give enemies useful insight into Navy/Department of Defense operations, weaknesses, and/or capabilities. The videos cannot be divided into separate parts for publication.”
