Now, we have seen the UFOs by US Navy's onboard cameras, they are so fast and they do change their directions very quickly. How do they do so almost breaking the laws of physics?

    $\begingroup$ Since the object is, by definition, "Unidentified", it's going to be difficult to detail how and why it is able to fly quickly and have such sudden direction changes. At best, this question will garner purely speculative answers (unless a member of the US Navy with intimate knowledge of the particular incident happens to stop by and be willing to share what has probably been deemed Classified or Secret information), and this particular slice of the web doesn't deal well with speculative answers. Please take the tour and read the help center to see if you can bring your question in line... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ If you want a real answer to your query, you might change it to read something like, “What design considerations would have to be taken into account to make an aircraft accelerate, decelerate, and/or change directions so quickly? And, how do we make such velocity changes survivable by pilots?” $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


This is about 3 videos released by the Pentagon. The vehicles in those videos don't fly extraordinarily fast. The 3 videos in question show normal aircraft and a balloon. The reported speeds are incorrect due to imperfections in the equipment used and optical illusions.
