Lecture: Q and A with former Navy radar Operator Kevin Day
In this one on one with Kevin Day, host Alejandro Rojas will interview Kevin on-stage to get his first-hand account of the events that took place in November 2004 off the coast of San Diego. Kevin was a radar operator on the USS Princeton, part of the USS Nimitz Strike Group. For several days, objects were caught on radar performing strange maneuvers. On History’s Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation Kevin recounts a time during these encounters in which several objects were detected on radar. Kevin directed several F-18 jet fighters to intercept one of the objects. Commander David Fravor, one of the pilots, engaged what he described as a 40-foot white Tic Tac shaped object. We will also be taking questions from the audience during this session.

He is a TOPGUN air intercept controller with more than 20 years experience in strike group air defense including war-time operations. In November of 2004, off the coast of San Diego, Kevin was a radar operator on the USS Princeton, part of the USS Nimitz Carrier Strike Group. Over several days unknown objects were observed on radar. On several occasions, aircraft were directed to find the objects. The pilots reported seeing 40 foot-long Tic Tac shaped objects that performed remarkable maneuvers beyond the capability of our aircraft.
