In the video, a woman who spots the floating UFO says excitedly: “What the (expletive) is that? Oh my God, it (expletive) disappeared!”
The narrator intones it’s either an alien craft, a drone or a secretly engineered Air Force project.
“When it comes to secret military bases that may have something to do with alien phenomenon, the first I don’t think of is Area 51,” a secret base in the Nevada desert, the narrator says. “No, the first thing I think of is Wright-Patterson and this footage we’ve received confirmed that for me.”
The base was once headquarters for the now defunct Project Blue Book, an Air Force investigation of 12,618 claimed sightings of UFOs between the 1947 until 1969. Of those, 701 were never explained. A declassified 1992 CIA report concluded half of those reports were sightings of the high-flying U-2 and SR-71 spy planes.
The website Black Vault posted Project Blue Book reports online in 2015.
In 1985, Wright-Patterson issued a statement that said the Air Force concluded Project Blue Book investigations showed no UFO sighting was a threat to national security, or demonstrated technology beyond present-day sciences, and no evidence indicated extraterrestrial vehicles.
“Periodically, it is erroneously stated that the remains of extraterrestrial visitors are or have been stored at Wright-Patterson AFB,” the statement concluded. “There are not now, nor ever have been, any extraterrestrial visitors or equipment on Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.”
