Jet fighter battles mystery ‘UFO’ at Area 51

Allison Yee

It’s the site that’s notorious for alien activity, and now UFO hunters have snapped bizarre photos of two jet fighters flying alongside a mystery object near Area 51 in the Nevada desert.

Tim Doyle and Tracey Su camped out 20 kilometres from the military base, and snapped a series of questionable images.

The pair spotted two jet fighters above them at the time, but it was only when they got home and analysed the photos that they realised there was something else in the air.

“We noticed a third object,” says Tim in a video posted to Youtube channel thirdphaseofmoon.

“What in the world is this? It looks like some kind of triangular unmanned drone, because it’s definitely too small to have a person inside it.”

With US Air Force base Area 51 highly classified but long thought to be linked to extraterrestrial activities, Tim and Tracey speculate they’ve not only caught a UFO on film – but US military interacting with it.

“After reviewing the pictures, it definitely looks as though the three crafts are interacting with each other,” said Tim.

“It’s like a three-plane dogfight.”
