The New York Times shared an interview with now retired Cmdr. David Fravor on Saturday amid news that, for the first time, a spokesperson confirmed that a program to research UFOs existed at the Pentagon. Fravor's encounter was one the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program was investigating, according to reports by The New York Times and The Washington Post.
This is what Fravor says happened. He and another pilot were with the USS Nimitz training in F/A-18F Super Hornets about 100 miles out in the Pacific Ocean when someone on the Navy cruiser USS Princeton contacted them by radio about mysterious aircraft.
