Two more former Navy pilots have spoke out their encounters with an "unsettling" alien craft on the famous USS Nimitz UFO incident.
Commander of F/A-18 Squadron Lieutenant Alex Dietrich and former Navy pilot Dave Fravor were training with a strike group off the coast of San Diego in November 2004.
They've shared their harrowing experience with host Bill Whitaker on 60 Minutes and explained how the tic-tac shaped craft mirrored their flight path.
The radar installed on the US aircraft carrier detected what the pilots called "multiple anonymous vehicles" over the horizon descending 80,000 ft in less than a second, according to the report.
Fravor recalled the day they flew out to investigate and said: "We saw this little white tic tac-looking object, and it's just kind of moving above the whitewater area.
Lt. Dietrich joined Fravor and circled about the area while Fravor tried to get a closer look.
The pilot added: "The tic tac still points north-south and then turns abruptly and starts mirror me.
"So I start coming down, it starts coming up."
The CBS presenter suggested if the craft was mirroring his move, Fravor said the UFO was "aware" of their presence and described it about the size of the F/A-18 fighter jet – but with no markings, no wings and no exhaust plumes.
"I tried to get as close as I can and as I go like this," the pilot gestured that he was flying along the horizon.
"And it is climbing still, when it gets right in front of me it disappears."
Lt. Dietrich said she tried to "make sense" of what she witnessed but struggled to categorise it as either a helicopter or a drone.
Both Dietrich and Fravor, as well as their back seaters, claimed to have watch the UFO for five minutes before it was gone.
Fravor added: "There is definitely something – I don't know who's building it, who's got the technology, who's got the brains.
"But there's something out there that was better than our airplane."
Another ex Navy pilot, Lt. Ryan Graves also went on the programme and said that he saw "unidentified vessels" flying off the coast of Virginia every day for two years beginning in 2019.
