There have been several sightings of UFOs by military pilots, including an infamous 2004 encounter with F/A-18 Super Hornets near the Nimitz off the coast of California.

Captain Max Clark, the commanding officer of the Nimitz aircraft carrier, says his crew has an “obligation” to make certain that airspace is clear of UFOs. “From my perspective, we have an obligation to make sure the airspace is clear, whether it’s UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon) or UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), this is part of the airspace,” he said. “It adds another level of…from a pilot’s point of view, to see and avoid, and also our radar systems looking for things like that too, just to make sure everybody’s safe.”
