A US fighter pilot whose plane filmed the famous “tic-tac” UFO footage has revealed how his weapons system was disabled during his encounter. 

Seventeen years on, Commander Chad Underwood has described the moment he tried to track the “target of interest”, he began seeing “strobe lines” on his cockpit radar which indicated the jet’s weapons were being jammed.

UFOs have stepped from a fringe conspiracy theory to a genuine national security debate as the US last week admitted hundreds of mysterious encounters in the skies.

It followed the Pentagon confirming Underwood’s in-flight video from 2004 was authentic. 

The incident unfolded during a USS Nimitz carrier group exercises off the coast of Mexico.

Crew aboard the Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser USS Princeton, had been spending the past two weeks tracking mysterious aircraft on and off with an advanced AN/SPY-1B passive radar.

Now, speaking to filmmaker Jeremy Corbell, Mr Underwood has revealed how his weapons system was suddenly crippled after he attempted to track an unidentified object which was travelling and moving at incredible speeds. 

He said: “Once I got the target of interest on my radar I took a lock and that’s when all the kinda funk things started happening.

“The erratic nature of the tic-tac. The air speed was very telling to me.

“Then we started seeing what we call jam strobe lines.

“Strobe lines are vertical lines that show up on your radar that are indications that you are being jammed.”

French war planes have also reported experiencing its weapons systems being disabled during similar encounters on four occasions, according to an official investigation. 

After releasing the bombshell report last week, it appears the US Department of Defense (DoD) is preparing to set up a new unit dedicated to the strange phenomena, similar to secretive agencies in hit TV show The X-Files and movie series Men in Black.

DoD officials released a memo on Friday which stated they will now seek to “formalise” the investigations of UFOS, often now referred to as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs).

UAPs are currently the main brief of the UAP Task Force, a body set up after a series of stunning leaked videos show strange encounters between the phenomena and US warplanes.

And a memo released by the DoD set out a three point plan to pull together US investigations to try and work out exactly what these mysterious objects that defy normal understanding could be.

The first point states the DoD wants to “synchronize collection, reporting and analysis” of UAPs, and to “secure” military test and training ranges.

And then next it states it wants to set aside resources and staffing to continue the probe, seemingly confirming the establishment of a formal office.

Finally, it states there must be “coordination” between all arms of the US military and the intelligence services on the issue.

DoD staff will also have to report an apparent encounter with a UAP within two weeks to allow it to be more properly investigated, the memo reads.

It was signed off by deputy secretary of defense Kathleen Hicks.

The move is a major win for campaigners who have been calling on the US to take the issue of UFOs more seriously, and is being sent as another step on the road to potential disclosure.

Most of the sightings bear similarities. Some are tic-tac shaped while others are triangular or circular.
