The witness watched History channel’s first episode May 31 of “Unidentified” that first aired at 10 p.m. ET. The episode carried a segment about a UFO encounter off the coast of Baja in 2014.
“I encountered a USO in the exact same location while serving aboard the USS Flasher SSN 613 in 1976,” the witness stated. “I was a sonarman and I recorded the incident on one-inch tape. I have kept this secret for over 40 years because I was told by my commanding officer that we could never speak of this. We recorded everything while underway. And when we recorded any unusual sounds or submarines, we would submit our tapes for further analysis to the Navy and they would let us know what we had recorded. In this case we were told to shut up about it. This thing was moving at speeds underwater in excess of 80 knots and was running circles around us. There was no torpedo or surface vessel that could move at those speeds. The sonar system we were using at the time, the BQQ-5, was built by IBM and was the most advanced sonar system in the world at the time. After watching the program, I felt compelled to reveal the secret that I have kept for so long. I hope this information can find its way to Elizondo and Delong so that I can provide more details.”
MUFON’S International Director of Investigations Steve Hudgeons Jr. is investigating the report.
The new show is from former Blink 182 rocker Tom DeLonge who is working with former intelligence officer Luis Elizondo in the venture To the Stars Academy of Arts & Science. Elizondo was director of the Pentagon’s UFO investigations group - Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) – through 2017.
