DOD Officially Releases UAP (UFO) Footage

DOD Officially Releases UAP (UFO) Footage
Copyright 2020 by Michael H. Maggelet
  While footage of U.S. Navy F/A-18’s filming “unidentified aerial phenomena” was circulating for years on Youtube, the Department of Defense formally released the videos on April 27, 2020.
  Unfortunately for history, the footage does not reveal the speed of these craft in the display data, and interestingly enough, analysis of the videos do not show contrails nor residual heat signature from a power source (the IR heat signature over the craft is uniform). However, testimony from USS Nimitz personnel reveals the so called “tic tac” UFO’s possessed phenomenal speeds as shown on SPY-1 radar data, dropping from 28,000 feet to 50 feet in .78 seconds (Mach 24).
  If one reads the Condon Report from 1969, we can clearly see that the phenomena has been recorded from ancient times. In 1944, Army Air Force Chief of Staff General Carl Spaatz wrote a memo entitled “flying discs”, and this was later addressed by USAF General Nathan Twining in his famous 23 September 1947 letter noting “
The phenomenon reported is something real and not visionary or fictitious."  I have yet to locate the Spaatz memo.
  Throughout the decades covered by Project Sign, Grudge, and Blue Book, there were thousands of incidents documented near sensitive military installations- many of these documents were classified “Confidential”, a few "Secret", and only recently declassified. The problem, of course, is not something limited to the US, but noted in Canadian, French, Soviet, PRC, and UK military and government files.
  On a side note, my father was stationed at RAF Chicksands when TSgt Melvin Brown was there from 1964-1965. Brown was previously assigned to the 509th Bomb Wing at Roswell Army Air Field, New Mexico during the purported 1947 retrieval of a crashed UFO. My mother acknowledged she knew Brown, that he had an English wife, but apparently only knew each other at the small base in passing, and not socially.
  I was assigned to the 509th Munitions Maintenance Squadron at Pease AFB, New Hampshire from 1981 to 1984, and one day in the breakroom we had a discussion on the Roswell crash (this may have been due to a 1980's “In Search Of” episode featuring the incident). One individual, who shall remain unnamed, worked as wing historian, stated emphatically that upon examining crash debris, “they didn’t know what it was!”  He may have been quoting Major Jesse Marcel from the documentary, or passing along info from wing historical documents.
  Thus the interesting history of UAP's (UFOs) continues. The evidence is more than overwhelming in the Blue Book files to show that such craft and their occupants are conducting a reconnaissance of our planet for whatever reasons, and have been doing so for thousands of years. We, as a species, should take such examples from history, and prepare for any future contingencies and possible threats to our survival. 

  Our second book, Broken Arrow, Volume II, discusses several UFO incidents, most notably the 1975 incidents near Malmstrom AFB, Montana with unclassified NORAD documentation.
