The words "Supersonic," "UFO," and "Tic Tac" have probably never before been used in the same sentence. But according to the Pentagon, a supersonic UFO shaped like a Tic Tac stalked a U.S. aircraft carrier for days back in 2004, bringing these random words together in a strange but cohesive way!
In an alleged, leaked report written by the Pentagon, an "Anomalous Aerial Vehicle (AAV)" was seen on the radar of the USS Princeton, a Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser, on multiple occasions, over several days. The report claims the anomalous object could hover in midair, make itself invisible, and move so fast that the USS Princeton crew originally thought they were encountering a ballistic missile.
The unidentified craft was described as "solid white, smooth, with no edges... uniformly colored with no nacelles, pylons or wings", and looked like "an elongated egg or Tic Tac." Based on its physical description and its aerial behavior, the AAV matches "no known aircraft or air vehicle currently in the inventory of the United States or any foreign nation."
So... to whom does this mysterious Tic Tac ship belong - and why are we only learning about it 14 years later?
