The videos were made public in 2017 by the New York Times and were also released by the UFO research group founded by former Blink-182 singer and guitarist Tom DeLonge, writer of the song "Aliens Exist".
The Navy's choice of words when confirming the videos as being of real UFOs also raised eyebrows within the alien tracking community.
"The Navy considers the phenomena contained/depicted in those three videos as unidentified", US Navy spokesman Joseph Gradisher told The Black Vault.
Tom Delonge suspected the truth was out there long before departing from Blink 182
A spokesperson for the US Navy has allegedly told the site that the videos are authentic - the first official confirmation by the military that the footage depicts flying phenomena that can't be identified, although the abbreviation UFO (unidentified flying object) is no longer in official use. Another ("GoFast") shows the observing aircraft's sensor lock onto a fast-moving target as the pilots are heard in the background excitedly wondering what exactly they've stumbled across. According to TTSA's website, "the date, location, and other information have been removed by the originating authority as part of the release approval process".
The "FLIR1" video was first captured by Navy Commander David Fravor near San Diego, California in 2004.
John Greenwald, who runs the Black Vault told Vice, "I very much expected that when the USA military addressed the videos, they would coincide with language we see on official documents that have now been released, and they would label them as "drones" or 'balloons". "They would be surprised how the American public would accept it", he said during a wide-ranging interview with a Nevada radio station. A second video was taken in 2015 showing an anomalous aerial vehicle rotating as pilots comment on how odd the object appears over their communication system. He added his surprise, however, at the Navy going on record to describe the videos" contents as "phenomena" and "unidentified'.
"These things would be out there all day", US Navy pilot Lieutenant Ryan Graves told The New York Times.
The mysterious objects were shown in footage taken from US Navy jets in 2004 and 2015 over restricted military training airspaces.
