Did Iranian Fighters Battle UFOs?
Forbes ^ | 1/14/2014 | Michael Peck

Posted on 01/15/2014 11:06:42 AM PST by RoosterRedux

As if the Iran-UFO connection (the Axis of Alien-ness?) couldn’t get any weirder, it now appears that the Iranian Air Force attempted to shoot down aircraft that didn’t seem very Earth-like.

Before I go any further, the following does not come from a conspiracy Web site. It’s from an article last October in Combat Aircraft Monthly, a military aviation magazine that features some well-respected writers. The article on Iranian F-14 Tomcat fighters by Babak Taghvaee, who has written extensively on the Iranian Air Force, also recounts how Iran attempted to intercept what it believed to be U.S. spy drones overflying its nuclear facilities.

What’s interesting in Taghvaee’s piece is how Iran describes the intruders, which the Iranians called “luminous objects” in the belief that they were emitting light to enable night photography:

According to Iranian sources, the CIA’s intelligence drones displayed astonishing flight characteristics, including an ability to fly outside the atmosphere, attain a maximum cruise speed of Mach 10, and a minimum speed of zero, with the ability to hover over the target. Finally, these drones used powerful ECM that could jam enemy radars using very high levels of magnetic energy, disrupting navigation systems.
In one intercept over the Arak nuclear facility in November 2004, an Iranian F-14 Tomcat tried to lock its radar on to a luminous object, only to have the radar beam disrupted. “The pilot described the object as being spherical, with something like a green afterburner creating a considerable amount of turbulence behind it,” according to the article. The intruder then increased its speed and “disappeared like a meteor.”

Another interesting one from Iran is the 1976 Tehran UFO Incident, a radar and visual sighting of an Unidentified Flying Object over the capital city.

[The incident]...remains one of the most well-documented military encounters with anomalous phenomena in history, and various senior Iranian military officers directly involved with the events have gone on public record stating their belief that the object was not of terrestrial origin.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1976_Tehran_UFO_incident

It’s interesting reading.

The 12th Imam was trying to make his way back to Earth and the dumb-ass Iranians chased him away.

It’s moon Nazi’s. Everybody knows it’s moon Nazi’s, ain’t no such thing as “aliens”, just moon Nazi’s. It could be the mars Nazi’s, but I see no reason for them to bother with Iran.

Tall White Aliens may be using the Mexican Border to sneak in and take leaf-blowing jobs that Short Brown Aliens will not do.

Obama must get on this. Leaf Blowers lead to Global Warming. I don't mean he should get on this personally, though, since it may interfere with golf. However, it would be a perfect cover assignment for Reggie ("Monica") Love.

I would imagine they probably ran into three Marines that moved so well, co-ordinated and fast ... they were convinced they had met extra terrestrials

Seems as if the US WW-II Normandy pilot did a few years back. US AF Captain Mantell, over Fort Knox.

Probably nothing more than Extraterrestrials after a cache of Gold, and shot Mantell down in annoyance at travelling trillions of light years only to find nothing inside.

Then is must be true, as they would never lie.

How did these freaks obtain F-14 Tomcats. And let them continue to believe these stories. It can be used to knock them out in future fights.

The US sold the Shah of Iran several dozen F-14s before he was overthrown during the Carter years. The Iranians have scrapped most to keep a few flying. And buying black market spare parts. These are very early 1970 versions

I think the message to the Iranians is to go ahead and build their nuclear weapons. But it's a total waste of their time and money, and it will not end well.

I’ve heard stories from the Vietnam war where objects were being tracked on radar at unbelievable speeds and making 90 degree turns straight up. Would turn a human body to liquid.
