MYSTERY WIRE Two years ago this week, the New York Times dropped a bombshell with its front-page story about a secret Pentagon study of UFOs. The report included a dramatic UFO encounter that was captured on video — the “Tic Tac” incident. Here’s a preview of our Mystery Wire story:

One UFO video rocked the world. The Pentagon admits it released the footage and that the object is unidentified.

The so-called “Tic Tac” played cat and mouse with the U.S. Navy over two weeks in 2004. U.S. Navy Black Aces Cmdr. Dave Fravor engaged the unknown craft, chased it, got a closer look than anyone.

In an exclusive one-on-one interview, Fravor told us what it is, and what it isn’t.

“There were four of us,” Fravor recounts, discounting some other stories that have surfaced since the video came out. “We chased it … have no idea what they’re talking about.”

Our one-on-one interview, raw and unedited, plus Cmdr. Fravor’s first and only public appearance to discuss what might be the most important UFO encounter in history.
