Thanks for pointing this out. Do we know why it broke lock, did the WSO do it intentionally or was it related to the inability of the radar to pick up the object? If we can't maintain targeting lock on a passenger plane or even pick it up on radar/range finder then our Navy is going to have serious problems in a real fight. The Navy tracked the objects on radar the entire time, and the FLIR1 video was recorded at the same CAP point that the Tic Tac object was seen on radar after it zoomed off from where it was seen visually at the merge-plot point. 4 aviators lost visual contact over the horizon from two different vantage points on a clear visibility day at the same time that radar showed the object moving to the CAP point where it was later recorded on video. I understand that witnesses and incident report on their own are not proof of anything, but don't they at least corroborate the video when we have numerous people who saw it visually and others who confirm what they saw on the radar scope? If we had no witnesses I know someone here would point out that "all we have is a video"
