Navy pilot who observed what has become known as the Tic Tac incident. Sent out to fly out over the Pacific Ocean in November 2004, Dietrich and her team members witnessed something they described as unsettling and unexplainable.
Alex Dietrich, a navy fighter pilot, was on duty off the coast of San Diego in 2004 when she and her then-commanding officer, David Fravor, observed an UAE which has become known as the Tic Tac incident. A warship's radar tracked an object moving in a peculiar pattern and asked Fravor and Dietrich to get a closer look. They observed and video recorded a strange aircraft flying at high speeds over the water that they described shaped like a smooth Tic-Tac. It was about the size of a their own aircraft and the water was roiling beneath it.
According to Dietrich, the object moved in ways that neither pilot recognized because it seemed to do so without "any visible flight control surfaces or means of propulsion." After several minutes of observing the object, Fravor tried to fly towards it, and it accelerated away at great speed. Seconds later, the USS Princeton reported the object 60 miles away. U.S. government officials have found no definitive evidence that what the Navy pilots witnessed are alien spacecraft, however they are unable to provide an explanation for this unidentified object.
