Asked of Armed Forces servicemen is the photographing and/or filming of “Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) and Other Aerial Phenomena Imagery”. Again, “UFOs” are treated as distinct from aircraft, etc. Specifically, the phraseology is: “Aerial flying objects "UFOs" not obviously identifiable as conventional aircraft” and “Aerial phenomena (including moving lights and similar phenomena)”. Also, the imaging of such UFO Sightings is asked thereof during “routine peacetime events” and “activities unrelated to either war, overseas combat...” and such. So, they aren’t talking about stray military drones or nasty long-range bomber contrails.This isn’t some 1950’s, 1960’s, whatever doctrine. This is from the 2000’s, and departs radically from the US militaries assertions that “UFOs” and “aerial phenomenon” are simply not in their jurisdiction.
