Are you saying the Pentagon are trying to dupe us with their video release?

Mundane, non-pseudoscientific explanations include instrument or software malfunction/anomaly/artifact, human observational illusion (e.g., parallax) or interpretive error, or common aircraft (e.g., a passenger airliner) or aerial device (e.g., weather balloon), with the science writer Mick West stating that one of the reported objects in these incidents are "most likely...a relatively slow-moving object like a bird or a balloon," and that "the jet filming it is moving fast, so this creates an illusion of speed against the ocean." West stated that the GIMBAL video can be explained as footage of a distant plane with the apparent rotation actually being the glare in the IR camera rotating.

Maybe.

Maybe the pilot would have thought, that could be a plane? I'll just check my on board radar?

Hi Sir, just wanted to report an object I recorded.

Did you check your radar to see if it wasn't just another plane in the sky that shouldn't have been in that airspace, despite all US aircraft having to file flight plans?

Ah shucks, I didn't check the radar, Sir.

Question: do fighter planes fly around with their radars on or do they not want everyone to know who they are and where they are at?

They would also be in constant contact with ATC, who will also be monitoring the airspace for them.

Yes I am. Do you think they do have them on all the time? If so, what kind of radar and how does it work?

If any plane is on a secret mission, how do you think they avoid detection by enemy radar? By turning their own radar off? Or is it something else?

Half the job of a fighter plane is to NOT get shot down. If they are out training, they might be training to be at war and use the tech and processes they deploy in war. But maybe it was a joy-ride. Who knows?
The more powerful their radar, the more detectable they are. It's like car headlights - they help you see, but people can see you. Fighter jets don't want to get shot down so they don't have to turn on the same radar that a 747 would have. They use 'passive radar'. So a small object at some distance, especially flying low, might not visible on their fancy fighter-plane radar, which uses fancy systems that are designed to track fighter plane sized objects at close range. This is actually why AWACS are so important - they sit at the back and see everything using BIG ('active') radar and then pass this info on to all the fighter planes that don't want to be so visible.

Also..... flying low to the surface makes it hard for ground-based radar to detect planes, let alone little stuff like this drone/alien, so that might explain why it wasn't visible to blah, blah, alien bullshit, blah.....

You don't even know why it's funny but you're hoping to bluff your way through. I respect that, but I deal with kiwi rugby fans so I know all the tricks.

Here's the thing - you ask a question that you think will make people go, "Wow! It is aliens!" but when there is some explanation you laugh and just try a new tact. You're morons. A high level of ignorance combined with a low intelligence combined with ignorance of your own lack of intelligence = UFO enthusiast who is just 'asking questions'. You're the same as Trump voters. Morons.

So you know why a fighter jet mightn’t see a thing like that, right? Or were you in the catering Corp? Why can’t you admit that you know nothing and hope nobody notices. You’re like a Christian.

Those stories have been criticized by journalism professor Keith Kloor as "a curious narrative that appears to be driven by thinly-sourced and slanted reporting." According to Kloor, "Cursory attention has been given to the most likely, prosaic explanations. Instead, the coverage has, for the most part, taken a quizzical, mysterious frame that plays off the catchy 'UFO' tag in the headline."

Damn that guy looks dumb. Anyway, beside the point, I get it.

The thread is only about exhibit #43239311 entitled, "grainy black and white film featuring an unidentified blob".
