Transcript for Pilots report encounters with high-flying objects
We turn to those new reports. Five pilots coming forward saying they've had multiple encounters with fast-moving objects and gio Benitez is at the Hudson river with more. The Navy is now investigating? Reporter: They are, Cecilia. Yeah, a lot of these ufos have been captured on video, some over water and now at least one pilot says he saw them daily. New reporting this morning on unidentified flying objects in our airspace. Look at that thing, dude. Reporter: "The New York Times" speaking with five Navy pilots who all said they encountered ufos during training missions up and down the east coast. The pilots even noting the objects were accelerating to hypersonic speed making sudden stops and instantaneous turn. Clearly nothing we're used to seeing so we submitted a safety report saying there was an unidentified object in our working space and didn't know what to do. Reporter: "Unidentified: Inside America's ufo investigation." The object then appears to secret -- accelerate. Reporter: They speak out on numerous encounters? We trust the American people to know that there are certain countries that have nuclear warheads and yet we don't trust the American people to know that there's something in our airspace that we don't know what it is. Reporter: Overnight the Navy telling us in recent years there's been a number of reports of unauthorized and/unidentified aircraft in our airspace and, therefore, they've implemented new steps to report further possible incidents. And, listen, nobody at the department of defense is saying these are extraterrestrial. In fact, they say there could be earthly explanations for all of it but a lot of people are left wondering, guys. I like how you did the air quotes. Earthly explanations. We'll see. All right, more investigating needed. Thank you, gio.
