SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Newly declassified videos are shedding light on the government’s now defunct 22-million dollar advanced aviation threat program.

One of the videos shows an unidentified flying object 100-miles off San Diego’s coast.

“I have never seen anything in my life that has the performance, the acceleration, “ said Commander David Fravor, ”keep in mind this thing had no wings.”

Commander David Fravor was piloting an FA-18 on a Navy training mission when the an object he describes as a 40-foot tic tac appeared in the distance “It's moving around, left, right, forward, back,” said Fravor, “the radar starts being jammed.

All of a sudden it takes off.” Aviation experts say it’s possible the UFO could be light reflecting because of climactic conditions, but the object appearing on the infrared camera along with radar lends itself to another possibility.

“I think it was not from this world,” said Fravor, “I just know it was really impressive, really fast, and I would like to fly it.”

The Pentagon shut down it’s advanced aviation threat program in 2012 citing higher priority issues that needed funding.
