Comic Con interview

“It's not often a new television series gets the U.S. government to cough up its long-held secrets. That's exactly what happened after Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation aired…” SYFY

Following the recently released Pentagon UFO videos,former Blink 182 star, Tom DeLonge (pictured left) returns to Sky HISTORY for a brand-new series of Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO investigation

In season two each episode follows a specific case of the Pentagon’s U.F.O. Task Force, the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP) which according to The New York Times will standardise collection and reporting on sightings of unexplained aerial vehicles, and report findings to the public every six months, following a recent Senate Committee Report.

Investigators followed in the series include former military intelligence official and Special Agent In-Charge, Luis Elizondo (pictured right), and former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defence and Intelligence, Chris Mellon.

The team continue to divulge what the US government know about these bizarre craft, hear additional first-hand eyewitness accounts of UAP sightings from military and civilian personnel, and share insight and information about these craft to produce tangible evidence and build the most indisputable case for the existence and threat of UAP ever assembled. In episode 1 ‘UFOs Combat’, we hear direct from an eyewitness account of an Army specialist stationed in Afghanistan who saw a UFO while on duty.

Starting with a 2017 frontpage New York Times exposé, which revealed the existence of a hidden Pentagon UFO investigation unit, this new series continues to uncover shocking revelations from sources close to the pentagon, the FBI and the US government – led by former Blink-182 frontman Tom DeLonge.

Headed up from 2007-2012 by Luis Elizondo, a $22 million project - officially dubbed the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) - was tasked with investigating the threat of UFOs and around the globe.

Elizondo is now part of a team of UFO investigators led by Tom DeLonge, which includes renowned CIA researcher and quantum physicist, Hal Puthoff, and former Assistant Secretary of Defence for Intelligence, Chris Mellon.

Luis Elizondo teases that Season 2 will continue to impress following the revelations in the first season. Elizondo said: "When the audience gets a taste of what we were able to do in South America, that’s going to open the aperture and the floodgates…I was literally in their office with their Secretary of the Air Force and four-star generals having this conversation directly with me on camera, for the first time ever, saying, 'Yes, my government thinks this is a serious issue. We actively investigate UFOs and we know they are real, and we want to share information with your government.' That’s a drop-the-mic moment."

In the eight-part series DeLonge, Elizondo, Mellon, Puthoff and others reveal for the first time the AATIP’s copy of the United States Blue Book on UFO sightings and analyse its explosive contents.

The second series of Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation premieres on HISTORY on Tuesday 13th October at 22.00.

Viewing material and interview access available on request.

Episode Synopses

Episode 1: UFOs in Combat Tuesday 13th October at 22.00

Everything we know about UFOS has changed. Now, the all-star team that led the U.S Navy to admit UFOs are real launches a new season of investigations aided by a fresh wave of exclusive, military eyewitnesses. These veterans testify to an extraordinary series of encounters between US Military and UFOs dating to the Vietnam War. The team attempts to connect the dots. Are these the same unidentified craft shown in declassified US Navy videos and have they been shadowing American forces for decades? Download preview clip here.

Episode 2: Planetary Threat Tuesday 20th October at 22.00

In an international UFO hotspot, Lue Elizondo uncovers exclusive video of a glowing orb recorded recently by an airline pilot at 35,000 feet and investigates possible connections to secret technology related to the USSR, plus a shocking aerial battle between a jet fighter pilot and an UFO. Local people reveal an ancient connection, as high-ranking officials drop a Project Blue Book bombshell. The planetary threat of UFO is explored.

Episode 3:UFOs vs. Nukes Tuesday 27th October at 22.00

The team investigates an alarming pattern of UFOs allegedly appearing near US Air Force bases that house nuclear weapons, and nuclear-powered US warships. A new eyewitness account suggests these craft have an incredible ability. Connections to a historic sighting where a UFO allegedly interfered with a US nuclear weapon are explored. Elizondo briefs former US Senator Harry Reid who offers a stunning theory about UFOs.

Episode 4: The Triangle Mystery Tuesday 3rd November at 22.00

Former intelligence officer Chris Mellon spearheads an investigation into one of the UFO phenomenon's great mysteries. Giant triangles allegedly capable of incredible acceleration and speeds have been seen all over the world, and even near major American cities. The lingering mystery: what are these objects, and what is their purpose? A new eyewitness may provide the answer: the triangles are mapping the surface of the earth, but for what purpose? Mellon and the team come to a headline-making conclusion.

Episode 5: The UFO Cover-Up Tuesday 10th November at 22.00

In 2017, Tom DeLonge and Luis Elizondo helped engineer the release of 3 videos captured by US Navy fighter pilots of "Tic Tac UFOs." The strange objects had no wings and were capable of seemingly impossible manoeuvres. These videos impelled the US Navy to acknowledge these unidentified objects exist. Now, new eyewitnesses radically expand what's known about “Tic Tacs” and could provide clues to the mysterious craft's origin. Evidence of a possible US government cover-up is examined.

Episode 6: Sightings Surge Tuesday 17th November at 22.00

Luis Elizondo calls on a new technology to analyse a series of UFO videos all recorded in 2019--a year that featured a huge increase in UFO sightings. While previously focusing on US Military eyewitnesses, the team broadens its focus to civilian accounts. Among the cases are a series of strange formations of craft reported by civilians in Colorado. Connections to UFO sightings by the US Military are explored.

Episode 7: Airline Encounters Tuesday 24th November at 22.00

US airline pilots are reporting near mid-air collisions with UFOs. Elizondo hears a never-told-before account from a major legacy airline pilot whose report of a glowing orange sphere while in the cockpit over Arizona is backed up by photo evidence. Elizondo speaks with another veteran commercial pilot, also former military, with a harrowing story of an unidentified object apparently tracking his jetliner. In both cases, the pilots feared a mid-air collision that would have killed hundreds of passengers.

Episode 8: Extra-terrestrial Encounters Tuesday 1st December at 22.00

When Luis Elizondo was part of the Pentagon's Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) he identified five observable characteristics of UFOs, dubbed the "five observables." But there is a so-called sixth observable Elizondo began to investigate--an invisible threat these craft may pose. On the trail of this phenomenon, he uncovers never-before-told accounts by U.S. Air Force personnel stationed at the USA's most sensitive sites.
