Investigation into UFO sightings by USAF pilots begins

WASHINGTON, (BM) – Nearly four years ago, in 2017, the American media (New York Times and Politico) reported that pilots of the US Air Force observed UFOs during their flight performance. The video footage taken by the pilots traveled the world and raised even more questions.

NASA has decided to investigate these observations of UFOs, and it is clear from the statements of the new director of the agency Bill Nelson, learned quoting “The bottom line is, we want to know,” he said. “And that’s what we’re trying to do.”

According to Nelson, a detailed investigation and study of the available data on the case are forthcoming. After that, the agency scientists will try to give a better explanation from a scientific point of view.

Whether a UFO exists or not continues to attract many people around the world, ordinary or politicians. Last year, for example, Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) Asked the Pentagon and national intelligence for a report on UFO sightings. The information from the two departments was to be prepared within six months, and they are already expiring. The definition of the two departments is not yet officially known. Still, an investigation by the New York Times shows that the conclusion in the report is that there is “no evidence of monitoring of UFOs and extraterrestrial technology, but still, we cannot rule out the opposite.”

In the past, the United States had a research program at the Pentagon that dealt with UFO surveillance. The Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) officially investigated the so-called “unidentified aerial phenomena.” In 2012, the Government terminated the program, but in 2020, under a different name, it was restored by the Pentagon.
