Rogue Aircraft

Between 2013 and 2019, several incidents involving unidentified “rogue” aircraft encountered by Navy pilots occurred in military airspace off the East Coast of the United States. The incidents, detailed in newly released “hazard reports” obtained via Freedom of Information Act request by The Warzone and other outlets, are shedding new light on the ongoing saga of the Navy’s UFO encounters… but what do the new reports really tell us?

This week on The Micah Hanks Program, after giving a breakdown of the media’s coverage of these new developments, we are joined in studio by writer Brett Tingley, a reporter for The Warzone–the publication that broke this story–and US Air Force veteran Jeff Smith, a retired C-130 navigator with close to 3000 hours in flight, who help us wade through the details of these hazard reports and what they mean. Are “unidentified” objects really the main concern, or should be more worried about technologies that are much closer to home? We’ll ask these, and other questions about mysterious “rogue aircraft” on this week’s edition of The Micah Hanks Program.
