Dave Fravor, Bob Lazar Discuss Tic Tac UFO at Oregon Fest
Thousands of people flocked to a small Oregon community last weekend to celebrate a famous UFO incident, wear costumes and party. The UFO Fest in McMinnville celebrated its 20th anniversary with some of the top figures in the UFO community, including the former navy pilot who had a close encounter with the now famous “Tic Tac” craft and the guy who put Area 51 on the map.
Preparations for the annual McMinnville UFO Fest Parade start early, by necessity. Each year’s event is larger than the last and most of the community and thousands of visitors participate in one way or another. And anyone who isn’t watching the parade is probably in it. This is Mardi Gras meets Halloween meets The Day the Earth Stood Still, with aliens of every shape, size and color and some from planets not yet discovered. The crowd stands five deep in some parts of town. Business establishments offer their own E.T. decorations and specials, and at the head of the parade are the invited speakers, who, despite the revelry, are serious in their presentations.
The lineup this year attracted the biggest attendance in the Fest’s 20-year history. Former police officer Dave Paulides, lecturing about strange disappearances; filmmaker Jeremy Corbell, who screened two of his documentaries, including one about former government scientist Bob Lazar; and Lazar himself, whose appearance produced the first sold-out event in the festival’s history.
And, in what he says was his first and last public appearance, former naval aviator Dave Fravor, the pilot who got the closest look at the now famous Tic Tac UFO, spoke about the 2004 incident took place off the coast of Southern California. The encounter was recorded on a video officially released by the Pentagon and sparked renewed international interest in the subject of UFOs. It has been reported worldwide and was featured on the front page of The New York Times in 2017. Fravor, who was commander of the elite Black Aces F-18 squadron, engaged the Tic Tac and saw it do things beyond the capabilities of earthly technology. “I watched it for five minutes,” he said. “It’s not a bird, not a weather balloon. I’ve heard all the Internet speculation. I don’t know what they’re talking about. I don’t know what it is. It’s way beyond the capabilities of a Super Hornet.”
In an on-stage interview, Fravor described the Tic Tac in great detail and indicated the original video showed it had two appendages, like legs. He might not have even noticed it if not for something much larger in the ocean just below where the Tic Tac maneuvered. “It’s what drew us to it. It was a perfectly calm day and it was causing white water in the shape of a cross, about the size of a 737,” he recalled. “The Tic Tac was moving around that white water. I didn’t see what was below the water. We just know it was causing the water to break on a pristine day.” Fravor has speculated the craft used gravity propulsion, something beyond known technology, and his claims are almost identical to those of former Nevadan Bob Lazar, who in 1989, said he worked on a program to reverse engineer spacecraft of unknown origin. Fravor and Lazar spent a lot of time comparing notes during the Fest.
“The craft he described and talking to him in person, it operates exactly like the craft I worked on,” Lazar, a former government scientist, confirmed. He and Fravor both said if the Tic Tac was human technology that had been mastered back in 2004, it would be tough to hide for 15 years. “You can’t tell me they have that technology and not exploit it,” Lazar insisted. “It would make us invincible. We’d jump on it the second we can duplicate it.”
“This technology would change humanity, change our lives,” Fravor added. “You can hide stuff for a long time but 15 years and no hint of it?”
The festival was inspired by a much earlier demonstration of similar technology, seen and photographed by an Oregon farmer in 1950. Despite numerous attempts to debunk the so-called Trent photos, they are still considered credible evidence of something unknown.
