Mysterious drones chased and harried four US Naval destroyers for up to 100 nautical miles just off the coast of California
The drones, or UAVs, were able to travel long distances at high speeds with extreme maneuverability
Seamen onboard the destroyers reported seeing multiple drones, and flashing red and white lights
A UFO spotter said the drones were ‘tic-tac’ shaped
The head of the navy and the FBI were involved in investigation, but it was hushed up by Naval intelligence
The area is home to a large US Naval Base on Sam Clemente Island, and in the same area as another infamous UFO sighting in 2004
US Navy warships stationed off the coast of Los Angeles encountered swarms of mysterious drones, which pursued them at high speed in low visibility – prompting a high level investigation and some head scratching among top military brass.
The series of encounters with suspected UAVs, or unmanned aerial vehicles, in July 2019, saw as many as six mystery aircraft swarm several US Navy warships close to a sensitive training area at the Channel Islands, according to The Drive.
Based on deck log data from four US destroyers targeted in the series of encounters, The Drive worked out that the drones flew at speeds of up to 45 miles an hour and traveled at least 100 nautical miles – far exceeding the capabilities of any commercially-available unmanned aircraft.
