This is my first post on this forum. It is great to see this criminally underrated series is still getting the appreciation it greatly deserves. Although I was a fan of this series as a young kid when I first saw it as a repeat in the late 80's I personally never actually believed in the actual UFO phenomena. I had always believed that it was either a natural phenomenon or a delusion of the witness etc. However I changed my mind about UFOs when I saw the 2004 video footage that was declassified by the US Department of Defense which showed US naval aircraft encountering UFOs that were defying gravity (ie: no jet-engines, no propulsion). There were three videos of UFO encounters. Two of the videos were from the 2004 incident which are dubbed the 'tic-tac' videos refering to the shape of the UFO (the 3rd video is from 2006 and is known as the 'Gimbal' video as it is about a different UFO encounter with a UFO that is gimbal shaped).
The whole 2004 incident reminded me of the UFO series with the dogfights between Sky-1 and the UFO. It rekindled my interest in the UFO series and led me to the dusting off my DVD boxsets of the series (that I had purchased over 10 years ago but never fully watched) and I started re-watching the series. I am still viewing the first few episodes but without a doubt it is one of the best Sci-Fi series (and the best Anderson show imho).
But getting back to the 2004 incident between the US navy and the UFO I have discovered that there have been documentaries post on Youtube detailing the entire event. Apparently the US Nimitz carrier group were tracking UFOs for a period of 2 weeks before launching 2 separate squadrons to intercept the UFOs.
The following is an interview on FOX news with the pilot David Fravor from the 2004 UFO incident :
(Note: The interview contains footage of the 'Gimbal' UFO from 2006 and not the actual 2004 incident in question) :
