Commander David Fravor is a retired US Navy pilot and the Navy pilot who had a close encounter in 2004 with the so-called Tic Tac UFO.
Commander Fravor is one of the pilots who chased down a strange unidentified flying object, seen in a leaked video of the Pentagon’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) to investigate unidentified flying objects.
At the end of 2017, three videos were released that showed what many people admittedly concluded where UFOs with technology beyond our own.
One of those videos was the so-called “Tic-Tac” UFO, which features of an object of approximately 15 meters in diameter shaped like a kind of tic-tac, flying at an incredible speed in the skies over the coast of California.
This object was pursued and filmed by Navy pilots in November 2004. Both the Navy personnel on board the U.S.S. Nimitz as well as their escorts had witnessed the amazing close encounter through the radar.
“I’ve never seen anything like it in my life that has that kind of behavior, capacity, and acceleration. Taking into account, of course, that this thing had no wings,” said Commander David Fravor, who was the first to make eye contact with the UFO, in one of the first statements on the subject since the videos went public.
During the podcast, Commander Fravor mentioned how when he sighted the Tic Tact UFO, his F / A-18F Super Hornet did not carry combat missiles since he was scheduled for a training mission. He also said that when the unidentified object was spotted, the aircraft’s radar was unable to get a lock on it, since the object was jamming his aircraft’s systems.
The latter is something amazing considering that the US Navy has one of the newest and most sophisticated radar systems in the world. Commander Fravor argued during the interview that even before he and his pilots managed to film the enigmatic UFO–which was performing nearly impossible maneuvers–the military was tracking unidentified objects via radar.
What exactly these objects are, remains an enigma. However, commander Fravor also spoke out on how UFO investigation by the military and the government is most likely still happening. The former Navy pilot also mentioned that he had traveled to Washington D.C. at least two times for a “confidential meeting with highly-ranking government officials,” whit whom he discussed the UFO encounters.
What is perhaps the most impressive revelation made during the interview is the case of another Navy man, who just as commander Fravor had an encounter with and UFO. However, this one occurred in the 1990s.
Commander Fravor explained that his fellow Navy man observed a kind of dark mass coming from the depths of the ocean.
The Navy was tasked with recovering a torpedo. As the helicopter was being flown lover towards the surface of the ocean, a black, large mass appeared from underneath. It was not a submarine, but a large, nearly circular dark object. The pilot observed the object emerging from the depths and saw how the torpedo was “sucked” into the water, as the object abruptly started sinking again. The torpedo was never recovered, and the story didn’t become famous.
Commander Fravor admitted that even before his UFO encounter, he never believed we were alone in the cosmos. “I just look up and say… There’s just way too many stars up there for us to be alone,” revealed Commander Fravor.
