US NAVY – ‘Gimbal’ – USS Theodore Roosevelt incident
According to articles published in The New York Times and Popular Mechanics among other places, Navy pilots from the USS Theodore Roosevelt carrier had reported sighting unidentified flying objects “almost daily” while training for a deployment to the Persian Gulf. “Unidentified gauzy blobs” on cockpit displays, onboard and off-board radar, infrared detections, and visual sightings by the pilots and weapon systems officers were reported. One pilot (Lt. Ryan Graves) described something “like a sphere encasing a cube”. Once, pilots reported an object almost collided with two jets prompting the VFA-11 fighter squadron to submit an aviation flight safety report.
