I’ve been preparing notes for my next Fringepop filming round. We’re going to do some episodes on the latest UFO flap started several years ago by the New York Times and the leak of the “tic tac” video. I’d thought I’d post some notes here – early, to precede the looming Pentagon report about UFOs.

In a nutshell, the impetus to default to an extraterrestrial explanation for recent UFO revelations like the 2004 USS Nimitz “tic tac” are as follows:

  • Credible eyewitness testimony by seasoned professionals trained in aerial observation, including pilots, testify to episodes involving flying objects those witnesses cannot identify.
  • These objects demonstrate capabilities that these pilots and other say are beyond technology now in possession by the United States or other military superpowers.
  • The United States has had a long, secretive history about its interest in UFOs.

The reason these circumstances are not persuasive is that all of these things have been on the table since the 1950s. Due to the selective nature and compartmentalized project structures of the nation’s most secret experimental aircraft programs (e.g., the A-12 Oxcart and SR-71 Blackbird in the late 1950s/early 1960s), very few of the nation’s experienced military pilots knew such craft existed. There is no reason to suspect that experience navy pilots would know what the “tic tac” was if it indeed is a secret black-budget technology. In addition, the unthinkable speeds and maneuvers of such craft are only “impossible” if gravity is in play—but what if there existed gravity modification technology, developed by the United States or some other nation? The existence of such technology would mean appeal to these craft capabilities as evidence of extraterrestrial existence would have no persuasive power.

But is there evidence of such technology and craft development? It turns out there is—and mainstream reporting about the “tic tac” and AATIP has either ignored it or been too inept to find it.

Look familiar? The one on the right … a rounded, oval shell. It’s from a U.S. patent that anyone at the New York Times could have (should have) found. (Okay, I don’t expect real journalism from it either, but many still see it as “the paper of record”).


What follows is a selective list of research articles produced by various authors at The Drive, a military/tech blog. These articles at times delve into de-classified documents and other resources like the United States Patent Office. The fact that the United States has been researching anti-gravity for nearly seventy years is demonstrable. There are patents held by the U.S. Navy for craft (or radar deflecting/scrambling devices) that conform to the “tic tac” UFO video and witness descriptions as well as the “fleet” of triangle UFOs. Further, some of these technologies were being tested within the precise carrier groups that were witnesses to some of the most publicized UFO incidents of recent months and years. Obviously, it cannot be determined that any of these human technologies are what was witnessed, but they can indeed account for much of the data.

Ask yourself: “Why haven’t I seen this information before?” Perhaps the narrative is the real story.
