The USS Nimitz Encounter
November 14, 2004 PACIFIC OCEAN
One hundred miles southwest of San Diego, fighter pilots engaged with a white aircraft, shaped like a massive Tic Tac and moving three times faster than the speed of sound. “I have no idea what I saw,” Commander David Fravor said of the encounter. “It had no plumes, wings or rotors and outran our F-18s.” He added that he wanted to fly one.
