U.S. Navy pilot Chad Underwood finally came forward for the first time in an interview with New York Magazine and spoke about his encounter with the mysterious tic-tac-shaped UFO captured off California’s coast in 2004.
He admitted that he saw something very mysterious and inexplicable that day in November 2004.
“It is just what we call a UFO. I couldn’t identify it. It was flying. And it was an object. It’s as simple as that,” Chad said.
A major reason the encounter was so baffling was that the object flew at about 50,000 before suddenly dropping in just a few seconds to about a hundred feet above sea level without making a sonic boom or expelling any exhaust plumes.
“No method of propulsion that was keeping it airborne: no wings, no heat, keeping it airborne or aloft.”, he added.
He also stated that there is no known aircraft on this planet that could have maneuvered in that manner.
“The thing that stood out to me the most was how erratic it was behaving. And what I mean by ‘erratic’ is that its changes in altitude, air speed, and aspect were just unlike things that I’ve ever encountered before flying against other air targets.”
“Because, aircraft, whether they’re manned or unmanned, still have to obey the laws of physics. They have to have some source of lift, some source of propulsion. The Tic Tac was not doing that. It was going from like 50,000 feet to, you know, a hundred feet in like seconds, which is not possible.”
