Alex Dietrich: We Have Barely Tasted the Sky

On episode 306 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, we are joined by former U.S. Navy pilot, Lt. Cmdr. Alex Dietrich. On November 14th, 2004, during a training mission with the Navy's Nimitz Carrier Strike Group, Dietrich, along with several other pilots, intercepted and witnessed something unexplainable while flying over the Pacific Ocean. The mysterious object, now widely known as the "Tic Tac", made extraordinary maneuvers that left the pilots completely baffled. The object would subsequently be caught on camera by another pilot soon after, and the video would eventually be leaked to the NY Times. Since then, the Nimitz UFO encounter has become one of the most talked about UFO events in modern history. Today, Dietrich joins us to describe the event from her perspective, gives her thoughts on how we can move forward with the scientific study of UFOs, and then answers your listener questions.
