"What the f-- is that thing?" one pilot can be heard saying in the video. He later adds, "Wow, what is that man? Look at that flying!" said another.

Video footage released by the To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science purportedly shows pilots observing a UFO while aboard a U.S. Navy aircraft.

To the Stars Academy of Arts and Science reports in a news release that they were the first to receive the video detailing an F/A-18E Super Hornet fighter jet's encounter with the UFO. It is led by Hal Puthoff, a Nasa and US Department of Defence adviser, and James Semivan, a former Central Intelligence Agency official.

This most recent clip has been released just a few months after the New York Times published two other declassified videos of alleged UFO sightings. With that said, this apparent alien UFO with no wings and no tail certainly came as a shock to the U.S. Navy pilots that encountered it as they flew their F/A-18 Super Hornet fighter jets along the East Coast of the United States in 2015.

"These are just three videos now that have come out that everybody's looking at", Elizondo said, referring to the other videos released previous year.

While the Department of Defence has declined to comment on the latest video, the agency did confirm to ABC News that the USA government had run a program for investigating reports of UFOs until 2012.

On the likelihood of a backlash against Mr Trump's threatened tariffs, he added: "This could obviously threaten the recovery". The higher forecast was in part due to expectations that USA tax cuts would boost economic growth there, it said.

Luis Elizondo, the former head of the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program who now works at To The Stars Academy, told CNN on Monday that the newly released video provides further evidence of what he said is likely a much larger cache of Pentagon materials about unidentified aerial phenomena and underscored the need for a public conversation around the issue.

Thomas Crosson, a spokesperson with the Pentagon, told the Times at the time in an email that the program ended due to "higher priority" issues that needed additional funding. "The DoD takes seriously all threats and potential threats to our people, our assets, and our mission and takes action whenever credible information is developed".

However, he wrote that sightings of odd and mysterious objects are not new to officials in the defense department and intelligence agencies but "nobody wants to be 'the alien guy in the national security bureaucracy; nobody wants to be ridiculed or sidelined for drawing attention to the issue".

Fravor said he was mystified by what he saw in the 2004 incident.

"This is true up and down the chain of command, and it is a serious and recurring impediment to progress".
