Blog on USS NIMITZ UFO Incident

KEVIN DAY is a retired United States Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer. A former Operations Specialist
and TOPGUN Air Intercept Controller with more than 20 years experience in Strike Group air defense
including war-time operations. An expert operator of the highly advanced SPY-1 radar system with years of service onboard AEGIS equipped ships including the USS VINCENNES, USS CHOSIN, and USS PRINCETON. Kevin has
logged hundreds of air-to-air intercepts of suspect aircraft in both training and war-time operations.
It was Kevin’s team in USS PRINCETON’s Combat Information Center that discovered the fleets of
anomalous air contacts, now known as the TIC TAC UFOs, in the sky’s above the Southern California
Operating Area in November 2004.

Because the unidentified air contacts were in too close proximity to the NIMITZ Strike Group while they were conducting at-sea training exercises and represented a potential hazard to safe flight
operations, Kevin recommended investigating the contacts with a pair of F/A 18 Super Hornets
launched from the USS NIMITZ. The NIMITZ Strike Group’s Air Defense Commander concurred and Kevin’s team conducted the now famous intercept. Interestingly, it was to become Kevin’s very last tactical intercept. It was also Kevin’s very last underway in the Navy prior to his retirement.
