David Fravor from Toledo, Ohio, was flying a F/A-18F super hornet off the coast of San Diego while the US Navy tracked mysterious UFOs for two weeks in November 2004.
It was before a bizarre encounter with one of the objects that was later investigated by a multi-million dollar top secret government program looking at mysterious aerial threats.
Details of the Department of Defense Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification £16.5million secretive programme investigating the threat posed by UFOs, and Mr Fravor’s case, were revealed last month.
Cmdr Fravor and Lt Cmdr Jim Slaight were two pilots each in an F/A-18F super hornet on a routine training mission 100 miles out over the Pacific Ocean off the coast of San Diego when it happened.
They were with the USS Princeton guided missile cruiser and SS Nimitz supercarrier at the time.
