    Yeah the Operation Mainbrace case was as close as I could recall too, but the Nimitz case has two top fighter pilots going public on video and mainstream print media to describe the events in detail, plus two radar operators going public and describing the details from their POV as well, plus the first military footage of an object associated with the case going public, and the Pentagon's unofficial report via the AATIP about that event and the signature performance characteristics of AAVs in general. I don't think we have any of that stuff from the Operation Mainbrace incident, or the other USS FDR sightings.

    Different times, different attitudes about many things. Unrelated to any of this I recently read Twenty Million Tons Under the Sea: The Daring Capture of the U-505 by Daniel Gallery and the reason I mention it at all is that I had to sort of bend and tune my reading 'ear' to get around some of the language and views of the era, specifically about the US Navy. Suffice to say 'much more conservative than we are now' would be an apt description of the Navy specifically and military in general. A lot of weird shit went down after the war - 'revolt of the admirals' etc. I don't get the impression that an officer's career would benefit greatly from making reports - and as it is today to who exactly? Also consider the communication technology of the era - no one then could have imagined what we have now. As I have said in other threads, when I was a kid standing on the bus stop I didn't have an incredibly capable computer in my pocket with access to a global communications grid.

    At the time of the Mainbrace incidents a good percentage of all personnel involved would probably have had some relatively recent war time experience and the planes they were flying were as high-tech as it got in the era. Without going to deep I found a couple of quick descriptions

    Operation Mainbrace UFOs

    UFOs & NATO: The Mainbrace Affair | Mysterious Universe

    A lot of time has passed since then but what I see (grain of salt in hand) is military encounters with aircraft exhibiting very similar characteristics to what we have seen recently courtesy of TTSA, with maybe some documentation at hand of the type available at the time. Multinational military sightings at that. Time has moved on, many of the people involved are worm food and now we have something vaguely remembered that has passed into history. Lacking some other revelation, some fuel for the fire, so will the Nimitz and related incidents.

    When I hear about current encounters I honestly think reconnaissance vehicles using a radically new propulsion system, maybe something similar to what you have theorized. When I hear about them in vacuum tube, drum brake, cigarettes are good for you 1952 that isn't the first thing that comes to mind and I do wonder if there is a connection.

    again i ain't scared this has happened at least five times before (1950's disney ufo documentary,UFOs: past,present and future,MJ-12 and the UFO disclosure live show featuring rich doty and the mysterious "falcon", and joe's firmage IASA)
    and guess what? we are still discussing UFO disclosure here, lol
    too bad we don't have those radar recordings....
    what about the japan airlines case? i found that one way more interesting thanks to the size and shape of the reported craft

    the validity of the footage was never confirmed, it could definitely be an airplane

    The video footage is the least interesting feature of this case. In my opinion it's everything else about the case that makes it the most significant UFO case in history. But the footage is among the first in history that we've seen of actual military footage of something associated with a very credible case by virtue of A.) the very credible multiple witnesses going public on video, and B.) the study of the case by an official Pentagon program and the release of that assessment.

    Agreed. It drives me effing crazy that we've never gotten hold of any radar data from any UFO encounter. We need that data - it's the only meaningful scientific evidence that's available, and vastly more significant than any photo or video. Modern radar data is similar in significance to the particle detector tracks we collect at the Large Hadron Collider: it's very meaningful empirical evidence which needs to be studied by academic scientists in the public sector. And we footed the bill for all of the radar equipment that the military has used to collect that radar data - we have every right to examine that data for scientific study, and they're holding it back from us.

    That's a quite interesting case, but not nearly as interesting as the Nimitz incidents. With the Nimitz incidents we have at least two top fighter pilots with impeccable credibility, plus two radar operators who were using the most advanced radar systems ever designed and deployed in the field, and we have the Tic-Tac ufo, plus a different domed disc-like ufo, and entire fleets of ufos performing radical maneuvers over the course of weeks. And we have the unofficial Pentagon report via the AATIP. We also have the blurry/shitty FLIR video, which is only possibly significant by virtue of its alleged association with all of the rest of that stuff - but it is notable insofar as it's one of only three video clips ever released by the military for public viewing in connection with this extremely controversial subject...personally I wish that people would encourage the release of more and better video clips, because I have zero doubt based on multiple credible accounts that the DoD has a whole lot of excellent video footage of AAVs performing extreme maneuvers and I want to see that stuff.

    again, i have no idea where this "train" is going but i am going to follow it until the end.
    shame there wasn't been any news about it recently
    while we don't have the recordings themselves, we do have photos of the radar blips from the washington 1952 encounters and the already mentioned japan airlines case

    I was going through one of my old books from the 70's & thought I'd upload some of the artwork from within the book :)

    The first picture depicts the Exeter case.
    One of them depicts the Kelly Farmhouse/Hopkinsville case.
    And another is that of the Papua New Guinea UFO/Father Williams case.
    The rest are just random artwork as far as I can tell.

    Well, it certainly touched a pop culture nerve. When people see something weird they can't identify they naturally go to the catalog we all have in our heads to try and find a close match, whether they realize it or not. People haven't been reporting strange airships with rivets piloted peculiar but human inventor-aeronauts for some time. The silver disc Venusian, Nordic, swarthy men knit cap flapjack flippers will eventually go away. Note first group were curiosities and the second usually had a message to deliver - coincidentally at a time when we all faced an existential threat. The next group will be more sophisticated and the messages will reflect whatever we're worried about at the moment.

    When a little kid tells you they had bad dreams or are afraid to go to sleep by themselves or whatever, sometimes they make up stories that reflect what's really on their mind. We generally see it for what it is.

    Note I never said there wasn't some real phenomenon at the core of this - but if you want to get to it you have to wade through all the rest.

    And if the Nazis had a secret UFO weapon they would have used it 0n the Russians first, probably a second time for good measure and the rest of us after that.

    The jungle UFO artwork is by Terry Hadler. And the UFO over the moon is by engineer Leonard Cramp from his brilliantly exploratory "Piece for a Jigsaw" (1966).

    While Paul Trent's "UFO" picture gets all the publicity - you hardly ever hear anything about the Rouen, France UFO picture. From the little bit of information I've found - it is noted incorrectly that it was taken in 1954. The correct year is supposed to be 1957. The only other info I know is that it was supposedly taken by a RAF fighter pilot. Does anybody have more detailed information like the pilots name, what type of aircraft he was flying, etc.? Thanks.

    Interesting comparison of the UFO w/ a twin engine airplane. I've also heard that the guy that took the pictures admitted it was hoaxed by cutting the handles off of two spoons and then gluing the bowl part of the spoons together.

    The consensus at NICAP is that the photo is a retouched or otherwise faked version of one of the Trent photos. Nobody ever found the alleged pilot, or any credible source material for the origin of the image. So there's no reason to consider it to be anything other than a modified/faked version of the Trent photo:
