"In a limited number of incidents, UAP reportedly appeared to exhibit unusual flight characteristics. These observations could be the result of sensor errors, spoofing, or observer misperception and require additional rigorous analysis."
Let's compare it with what used to be the official response to such things. At one time if military pilots engaged UFOs the gun camera footage would be confiscated by officials as soon as they landed and nothing more would be heard of it -- or them. Radar tracking data would also be removed if there was any. Thousands of reports would be studied and most explained away. Now we have a major intelligence agency saying that of the reports they have studied in the 20-odd years covered by this report, they can only explain one. And openly discussing objects with unknown propulsion systems. And allowing pilots to give interviews to TV stations describing what they saw. If someone had seriously told you that all this was going to happen, let's say back in the 70s or 80s, you would have laughed at them (and so would I). If this is a damp squib, I wonder what a dry one would look like!Hate to say I told you so, but there we are, a damp squib, noncommittal at best. We don't even know if the pilots saw anything at all.
It certainly will. His sighting takes us right back to the Rendlesham period again.Never mind, the truth is still out there:
X-FILES HUNK IN REAL-LIFE CLOSE ENCOUNTER WITH A UFO
X-files star David Duchovny says he really believes in aliens and ghosts and once had a close encounter with a UFO. Duchovny, who has become TV's hottest new hunk, plays Fox Mulder, an FBI investigator who hunts
extraterrestrials on the Fox series.
And the 33-year-old bachelor has brains to complement his good looks. Duchovny is a Princeton graduate, and is close to getting his doctorate in English literature from Yale.
He believes the U.S. government probably has real-life files on unsolved paranormal phenomena and mysterious crimes committed by unknown forces.
"My UFO experience wouldn't be in any file because I didn't report it to the authorities," Duchovny says, recalling a bizarre sighting 13 years ago. "But I did tell my friends about it because it was rather scary."
Duchovny says the encounter occurred while he was jogging alone along an empty stretch of beach in Ocean City, N.J., in 1982.
"I suddenly looked up and I saw this triangular kind of spaceship. It was
early morning, and I don't think I took more than a few steps when it just disappeared right out of sight.
"It almost looked like a variation of the Stealth bomber except there was no sound coming from it. One minute it was there, in the sky, in broad daylight, and the next minute it was gone."
Duchovny says there were no other eyewitnesses to his UFO sighting that day, but adds that that doesn't surprise him.
"Aliens can be very tricky," he says. "They come after you when you're
alone. There wasn't another soul on the beach that day.
"It's as thought once 'they' see you, it's, 'Hey, let's scare this guy.' I think it's some sort of game with them. What I do know for sure is that whatever I saw, it got the hell out of there real fast."
From my archives, must be about 20 years ago.
A triangular-shaped UFO, way back in '82... must add this to my collection then.
His overall comments re Interaction, etc , are extraordinarily so in tune with recent discussions and will surely resonate with some.
As discussed on, 'The Rendlesham Forest Incident' thread - on which there is inherently a crossover here - to emphasise the differentiation, any such triangular-shaped, 'craft' witnessed by Penniston as subsequently claimed, was only the size of a drone - nothing compatible to a stealth aircraft.It certainly will. His sighting takes us right back to the Rendlesham period again.
I wouldn't put any credence in the Penniston-Burroughs story anyway. I was referring to the Collins 30' object and of course the increasing proliferation of sightings of triangular objects through the 80s. The NIDs study suggests very strongly that these are black project devices. There is a cover up of such matters, with "alien spacecraft" used as the cover story...As discussed on, 'The Rendlesham Forest Incident' thread - on which there is inherently a crossover here - to emphasise the differentiation, any such triangular-shaped, 'craft' witnessed by Penniston as subsequently claimed, was only the size of a drone - nothing compatible to a stealth aircraft.
The other point re same, is how Penniston since confirms he alone decided the object could not be of earthly origin and he has still never seen anything like it.
Consequently, this leads to his tales of a cover-up, because of its extraterrestrial nature and so on.
As I recently evidenced on our seperate thread, any such cover-up assertions must be taken in the context of my discovery regarding the then, 'top secret' Teledyne Manta Drone v Penniston's proclaimed sketch of the enigma (only first published some 20 years later?).

Although it was merely experimental and never went into production, this smooth-surfaced technology dates from the late 1970s.
Penniston's even more recent and elaborate tales are championed as further evidence of an infernal cover-up.
The question is not what would it take before convincing there is no cover-up and especially same being a ludicrous notion as it's elementally founded on non-existant, 'flying saucers' - ask Kenneth Arnold...
For those who proclaim, 'foul play', like any heartfelt belief it tends to be intransigent.
Absolutely respected and goes without saying, entitled to!
Differing perspectives and not my mission to drag ufology from last century into the present...
... kicking and screaming...
Well, hopefully that data and a lot more will be available! I'd actually LOVE it if there was a terrestrial explanation for UFOs (it would be a lot easier), but there is isn't. They won't even make public specific examples or provide video and other evidence that would be convincing. It's as little information as they can give and not lie about the situation. Also, the report is focused on a narrow recent group if sightings as catalogued by AATIP / UAP task force during a specific time period, Congress needs to ask for a report on knowledge of UFO / UAPs and reports from 1947 to the present. They won't even let you see longer footage of the Tic Tac, for the love of all that is holy. There is a fire there, and a lot of people trying to fan the smoke in various directions, but the fire is spreading. Once more videos are leaked and more pressure is applied it will be over in time. The Dam has a big crack in it.Basically they haven't done the analysis yet, because they aren't competent to do so.
Give all the data to Mick West - he'd sort it out.
Better still, give the data to some competent scientist like Richard Feynman. Not Puthoff or Davis, who would just make it worse.
I don't think it is a hypothesis -- the evidence is too strong. Many witnesses were police officers. Joke photos don't mean very much.The Navy has only released one photo of a triangular object; which was a Batman balloon;

and one video of triangular-looking objects, which was just bokeh.

I think that after 40 years we can forget the triangular black project hypothesis- it is not useful.
It seems to be shattering, though. Skeptics always said a secret that big "couldn't be kept"...What is scary is the shadow government’s stranglehold on UFO information.
Yeah, anything that can do what these things do over our military installations, airspace and territorial waters without apparently ever being shot down --even these days --is in charge of the situation. And now, has been defined as a security threat.Like you said it is possible the UFOs will force the issue themselves.
Maybe the humanoids are ready to come out of the shadows, but I hope they protect themselves.
People will shoot and ask questions later as we are a violent society.
