Ryan Graves

Lt. Ryan Graves is a US Navy pilot who has been involved in a series of encounters with unidentified flying objects (UFOs) during his career. The encounters have taken place off the coast of Florida and Virginia and have been described as “otherworldly” and “mind-boggling” by Graves and his colleagues. The incidents have raised questions about the possibility of extraterrestrial life and the US government’s knowledge and involvement in UFO sightings.

Graves and his colleagues have reported encountering objects that appear to defy known laws of physics and flight capabilities. These objects have been described as “Tic Tac” shaped and have been seen to move at high speeds and make sudden, unexplainable maneuvers. These encounters have been ongoing for several years and have been reported by other pilots and military personnel.

Graves and his colleagues reported the objects on a regular basis. According to an interview with CBS News in 2019, Graves stated that he and his colleagues had seen the objects on a daily basis for about two years.

Another unique fact is that the objects have been detected on radar. The New York Times reported that the objects detected on radar were described as having “no visible engine or infrared exhaust plumes, but that they could reach 30,000 feet and hypersonic speeds.”

A third unique fact is that the incidents have been corroborated by other witnesses. In a report by Politico, several pilots and other military personnel came forward to describe similar encounters with unidentified objects.

David Fravor and Ryan Graves are both former U.S. Navy pilots who have gone on record to discuss their encounters with unidentified aerial phenomena, more commonly known as UFOs. While they’re connected by their experiences and openness in discussing these incidents, they were involved in separate events and did not serve together.

David Fravor is most known for his involvement in the 2004 “Tic Tac” UFO incident off the coast of Southern California. The incident was given the name due to the object’s resemblance to a Tic Tac mint. Fravor was one of the pilots who directly engaged with the object and has been quite public about his encounter.

On the other hand, Ryan Graves, a former U.S. Navy Lieutenant, reported frequent sightings of unidentified aerial phenomena during his time serving on the USS Theodore Roosevelt between 2014 and 2015. According to Graves, these unidentified objects would appear in restricted airspace southeast of Virginia Beach nearly every day for a couple of years, exhibiting extraordinary capabilities not known to be possessed by any earthly aircraft.

While they shared similar experiences, they witnessed different incidents at different times. Their testimonies have contributed significantly to the ongoing discourse surrounding UFOs and UAPs.

Experts have weighed in on the encounters, with some arguing that they could have a scientific explanation. Dr. Michio Kaku, a theoretical physicist, has suggested that the objects could be experimental aircraft or drones. However, Graves and other witnesses have disputed these explanations, arguing that the objects displayed flight capabilities that were beyond what is currently known to exist.

Several books have been written about the encounters, including “The Pentagon’s Brain: An Uncensored History of DARPA, America’s Top-Secret Military Research Agency” by Annie Jacobsen and “American Cosmic: UFOs, Religion, Technology” by Diana Walsh Pasulka. These books offer different perspectives on the encounters and the larger question of UFO sightings and their potential extraterrestrial origins.
