Since reports first surfaced in 2017 that the U.S. Navy had been encountering UFOs, the Air Force has been remarkably quiet when it comes to mysterious objects that may be flying around the skies.
Given the Air Force is America's principal aerial and space warfare branch, and in the 1950s and 60s it conducted the only official investigation into UFOs with Project Blue Book , many UFOlogists have found the Air Force's recent aversion to discussing the topic to be particularly odd especially when considering that the Navy has been rather vocal on the issue.
Yet after months of deafening silence, in an official statement, the Pentagon suddenly throw the Air Force into the mix with recent UFO reports. More excitingly, it also mentioned one of the most notorious agencies in all of UFO lore.
Susan Gough, a spokesperson for the Secretary of Defense's office of public affairs, said the Air Force's Office of Special Investigations looked into the release of two videos originally filmed in 2015.
