Meet David Fravor, The Retired Navy Pilot Who Saw The Infamous Tic Tac UFO
David Fravor appeared in front of the Oversight Committee on July 26 regarding his alleged encounter with a UAP in 2004.
Fravor was supposed to direct a 2 V 2 Air to Air training exercise after having spent around two weeks at sea. In his statement, David said: “As we launched off the USS Nimitz, we checked in with the air controller on the USS Princeton, and we were told that training was going to be suspended for real-world tasking. My wingman joined up and we proceeded towards a contact to the west of our CAP (Combat Air Patrol) point.”
They didn’t have anything on their radars, and they had no idea what they would find when they got there. “The air controller on the ship also had no idea but had been observing these objects on their Aegis combat system for the previous 2 weeks,” David said.
These things would stay for hours before immediately rising again after plummeting fast from above 80,000 feet to 20,000 feet.
The weather was “as close to a perfect day as you could ask” when they got there. There were “clear skies, light winds, calm seas (no whitecaps from the waves) so the white water stood out in the large blue ocean” Looking below, they noticed a “small white Tic Tac-shaped object” that was abruptly crossing the white water and had a longitudinal axis going northward and southward.
According to Fravor, there were no rotors, no rotor wash, and no discernible flight control structures like wings. “It rapidly accelerated and disappeared right in front of our aircraft,” Fravor alleged, as they drew nearer to the object.
A hearing on unidentified abnormal phenomena (UAPs) will be held on July 26 by the Subcommittee on National Security, the Border, and Foreign Affairs. The “Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena: Implications on National Security, Public Safety, and Government Transparency” hearing will examine first-hand experiences of UAPs. David Fravor, a witness who claims to have seen the “Tic Tac” UFO in 2004, is one among the people who will be giving testimony during the hearing.
According to the Oversight Committee, the purpose of the hearing is to evaluate the federal government’s “transparency and accountability” surrounding UAPs and any potential dangers to American national security. Fravor discussed his meeting with a UAP in his opening remarks.
David said this when explaining what transpired after he spotted the object: “We returned to Nimitz and mentioned what we had witnessed to one of my crews who were getting ready to launch.”
This team was in charge of filming the 90-second clip that was made public in 2017. The United States government declassified the film and granted permission for its publication to the general public. On YouTube, it has gotten over 11 million views.
At the end of his statement, David said: “I would like to say that the Tic Tac Object that we engaged in Nov 2004 was far superior to anything that we had at the time, have today, or are looking to develop in the next 10+ years.”
He continued: “If we in fact have programs that possess this technology, it needs to have oversight from those people that the citizens of this great country elected to office to represent what is best for the United States and in the best interest of its citizens.”
Fravor is not the only eyewitness who has spoken about the UAP. Retired U.S. Navy Lieutenant Commander Alex Dietrich, who was on the mission with Fravor, spoke about what they witnessed in a 2021 interview with Reuters. She said: “We don’t know what it was, but it could have been a natural phenomenon in human activity. But the point was that it was weird, and we couldn’t recognize it.”

David Fravor Career
David Fravor served as a commander in the US Navy before retiring. He oversaw Strike Fighter Squadron 41 as its commanding officer in 2004.
Strike Fighter Squadron 41 (VFA-41) also known as the “Black Aces”, is a United States Navy strike fighter squadron based at Naval Air Station Lemoore, California, flying the F/A-18F Super Hornet. They are attached to Carrier Air Wing 9 (CVW-9). Their radio callsign is “Fast Eagle” and their tail code is NG.
VFA-41 deployed to the Persian Gulf once more in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in May 2005. The squadron was highlighted in the PBS documentary “Carrier” during this deployment, with a strong emphasis on Commander David Fravor.
David’s squadron was stationed on the USS Nimitz (CVN-68) and was a part of Carrier Airwing Eleven. They were getting ready to deploy in combat to Iraq’s ground troops’ support operations in the Persian Gulf.
David Fravor has served for 24 years in the Navy (18 of them as a pilot) and two in the Marines. He has participated in five deployments. Currently, he works in California for Fidelity Technologies as a simulator instructor, teaching new pilots how to fly the F/A-18.
David, who has been talking about his experience to the To the Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences, the company where Elizondo is a consultant, said he knows that sharing his story has opened him up to ridicule – most but not all of it good-natured – but believes the incident should be more closely studied.
“I don’t think I was a nutjob as an officer in the Navy. I wasn’t drunk, I don’t do drugs. I got a good night’s rest, it was a clear day,” he said. “I think someone should have looked into it. Having talked to some of the other folks, it’s a big frustration that it’s coming out now and wasn’t discussed back in 2004.”
David is a 1982 graduate of Whitmer High School.
