Colonel Robin Olds with his F-4C after the success of Operation Bolo, this day in 1967. Using electronic warfare devices to disguise 28 F-4Cs of the 8th Tactical Fighter Wing, 16 MiG-21s of the Vietnam People’s Air Force were lured into attacking what they thought were bomb-laden F-105s participating in Operation Linebacker. 7 MiG-21s, almost half of the North’s total MiG-21 inventory, were shot down with no American Phantoms destroyed. The success of Bolo led to the grounding of North Vietnamese interceptor flights for a time, and a total reworking of fighter tactics under the tutelage of Chinese and Soviet advisors.

UFO Traveled 1.2 Miles In 0.33 Seconds Caught By Amateur Drone

A witness of North Carolina captured with a DJI Phantom 3 Professional 4K aerial camera this remarkable UFO to film. The UFO, just 50 feet off the ground, traveled 6200 feet (about 1.2 miles) in 1/3rd of a second (About 10,000 mph).

After the witness filmed the UFO he report it to MUFON, they notified NASA and sent them a copy of the video. This UFO sighting is under investigation and analysis work is being performed on it by both agencies as we speak.
