Now that i'm out of the navy i can tell this story and you can do what you want with it. I was an F-14 pilot on CVN-65 out off norfolk VA and we were flying standard mig cap which is what we call fleet protection two or more planes fly a set course around the group and check all air and surface contacts that my pose a problem to the group. It was about 00:35 and myself and my wingman were at angels 12 (12,000asl) and had radar set for 100 miles and were at a heading of 226 when my back seater told me to check my 10 as i looked out i said that i saw nothing he replyed back yes there is I asked my wingman if his radar had any contacts he had one bearing at 206 at angels 13 but it stayed in the corner of the screen as we turned towards it it moved just enough to stay in the out most reach of the radar. So we made a tactical turn and lit em up and headed for it and the damn thing went (on the radar screen)180 miles across the screen thats the radar coverage set at that time in about 1.5 sec's we where shocked to say the least! So we landed back at the carrier and were debriefed for an hour on what happend i never took any stock in to UFO'S until this happened. But i can tell you one thing for sure we would have never been able to get near it and if the US has any craft like it i'm not aware of them !!!!!!!
