Pentagon refuses to release ‘classified’ footage of downed UFOs

The Pentagon has confirmed that it possesses images or video of three unidentified flying objects (UFOs) that were shot down by U.S. fighter jets over North America in February 2023.

However, the Department of Defense (DoD) has declined to release the footage, citing its classified nature and the lack of a timeline for declassification, reports

Footage of the “high altitude objects and the takedown of those objects exists,” a Department of Defense (DoD) spokesperson told Fox News.

However, imagery of the flying objects “remains classified, and I have not received any information as to the potential timeline on a change in classification,” a DoD representative explained to the Daily Mail.

The three UFOs were intercepted and destroyed by F-16 and F-22 jets using sidewinder missiles over Alaska, Lake Huron in Michigan, and Canada’s Yukon territory, amid concerns that they posed a threat to civilian aviation or national security.

Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, revealed that one missile fired by a U.S. fighter jet missed the UFO over Lake Huron and that missile landed “harmlessly” in the lake. A second missile from an F-16 brought down the flying object.

The origin and nature of the objects remain unknown, although some sources have suggested that they could have been harmless balloons launched by hobbyists or researchers.

U.S. and Canadian officials conducted searches for debris from the flying objects, but these expeditions were eventually called off due to complications such as winter weather and wild terrain, raising the prospect that the UFOs would never be found and identified.

The Pentagon’s refusal to share the imagery of the UFOs contrasts with its prompt disclosure of a photo and a video of other aerial incidents that occurred around the same time, involving an alleged Chinese spy balloon shot down near South Carolina and a Russian jet colliding with a U.S. drone over the Black Sea.
