When the Mexican Airforce Filmed a Group of “Tic-Tac” UFOs Flying in Formation

Five Mexican Air Force Pilots encountered a group of UFOs flying in formation during a routine mission above the state of southern Campeche.


Back in 2004, long before the US Navy encountered UFOs off the coast of the United States, Mexican Air Force pilots encountered something similar. While performing a routine flight, the pilots filmed something compelling. A formation of UFOs was spotted by the Airforce Crew flying in formation and doing so at incredible speed. Many details of the video by the Mexican Airforce are similar to what happened years later when US Navy pilots encountered a strange UFO. This UFO would later become known as the Tic-Tac UFO. The objects recorded by both pilots displayed strange characteristics. Both UFO videos show objects flying at incredible speeds.

Hear the pilots talk

Conversations from the cockpit show excitement by both Mexican and United States Air Force Pilots. The difference between the videos filmed by the Mexican Air Force and that filmed by the US Navy is that the Mexican encounter showed numerous objects, at least eight. Some reports suggest they observed over a dozen objects flying in formation.


The UFO footage filmed by the Mexican pilots goes on for 2 minutes and 30 seconds. The video is authentic and has not been tampered with. An infrared camera was used by the flight crew to capture the lights while searching for drug-smuggling planes during a surveillance mission. The unidentified objects were believed to be flying at the height of about 11,500 feet. Why am I bringing back this UFO encounter eighteen years after the event took place? Because now UFOs are considered a top priority for study. Things have drastically changed in the UFO community. The UFO phenomenon is no longer considered a wild conspiracy.

UFOs are no longer a conspiracy

On the contrary, UFOs are now worthy of the most rigorous scientific studies. NASA, for example, has already assigned dozens of astrophysicists with the task of analyzing and studying UFOs. Not only that, but we have Professor Avi Loeb from Harvard University working on the Galileo Project. This project aims to understand the nature of UFOs using rigorous scientific methods. And if that isn’t enough, we had the Pentagon recently rebrand its UFO office, including the study of so-called transmedium UFOs. And the icing on the cake would probably be US Congress implying UFOs are technology, not of this world.
