Meet Ryan Graves, The Ex-Navy Pilot At The UFO Hearing
Ryan Graves or FOBS is a former F-18 pilot who appeared before House Oversight Subcommittee on National Security. He was trained to be an expert observer tasked with identifying any aircraft within our operating area.
Florida representative Anna Paulina Luna asked Ryan to detail an alleged event that occurred at the Vandenberg Air Force base in California in 2003. The former military officer said a large group of contractors with the Boeing company was working at a facility site when they “observed a very large 100-yard-sided red square approach the base from the ocean and hovered at a low altitude over one of the large facilities.”
“This object remained for 45 seconds or so before darting off over the mountains,” he added. Ryan continued, “Within 24 hours of the first sighting, another similar event occurred later in the evening.”
In 2014, Ryan was near Virginia Beach as part of VFA-11, a Navy Fighter/Attack Squadron made up of F/A-18F Super Hornets. He shared that they began detecting unknown objects in our airspace. Initially dismissed as software glitches, they soon corroborated these radar tracks with infrared sensors, confirming their physical presence.
Ryan detailed an alleged incident from 2014 when he was an F-18 pilot stationed in Virginia Beach. He claimed his squadron detected “unknown objects” which he describes as “dark grey or black cubes, inside of a clear sphere, where the apex or tips of the cubes were touching the inside of that sphere.”
There was no concrete proof to back up Ryan’s assertions. He claimed to have learned about the incident with the red square object through sources. “This is the information that was received through one of the witnesses that have approached me”, Ryan said. The former pilot asserts that they had official documents and a report from the incident that witnesses had held for years when Anna questions whether they were recorded in any official capacity.
Regarding the purported Virginia Beach incident, Ryan asserted that a colleague pilot had told him about strange objects with a diameter of between 5 and 15 feet that were supposedly flying between two F-18s and came dangerously close to the aircraft.

He was deployed twice in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Inherent Resolve. He shared in the hearing that he has witnessed advanced UAP on multiple sensor systems firsthand, and “I’m here to voice the concerns of countless commercial aircrew and military veterans who have confided their similar encounters with me.”
Ryan added, “It has been more than a decade since my squadron began witnessing advanced UAP demonstrating complex maneuvers on a regular basis, and we still don’t have answers.
“I founded Americans for Safe Aerospace to create a center of support, research, and public education for aircrew impacted by UAP encounters,” Ryan added about his current jobs. “We now have nearly 5,000 members and are actively working with more than 30 UAP witnesses who have approached us. I am also the Chair of the UAP Integration & Outreach Committee for the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, where we have assembled a volunteer team of almost 80 PhDs and aerospace engineers dedicated to tackling the science around this issue.”
