Classified military footage of the Phoenix Lights UFO phenomenon has recently been leaked by a former U.S Air Force aviator. The footage reportedly captures never-before-seen cockpit footage of Lockheed-Martin F-16 and Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II fighter jets in action the night of the original incident 17 years ago.

56th Fighter Wing Public Affairs at Luke has received numerous inquiries and requests, but has remained silent on the footage.  The report claims additional footage of multiple civilian casualties has been obtained.

The “Phoenix Lights” incident is one of the largest UFO sightings in North America.  Thousands of Arizona residents became alarmed when they noticed a sizable object in the sky above Phoenix 19 years ago.

Multiple eyewitnesses reported a diamond-shaped craft hovering above the city for at least a couple of hours.

Nineteen years later, questions about the Phoenix Lights are still being asked. Arizona residents still remember the phenomenon and the new footage has stirred more tension around the 19-year-old event. The lights have been the subject of intense scrutiny, government denials and internet documentaries.

This never-before-seen video of an engagement during the Phoenix Lights was leaked online this weekend, by KWBV News journalist David Collins. The FLIR video purportedly depicts military and unknown craft on the night of the mass sighting over Phoenix in 1997.
