Alleged DHS Employee Leaks of filmed UAPs. A-10 "Chased" by Object

The following video popped up repeatedly a couple of times in the last months on Reddit and was allegedly leaked from a DHS employee to the user NY_UAP_Discussion who runs an Instagram and YT channel. The movie consists out three shorter excerpts.




The first excerpt at 0:00 depicts a UAP chasing an A-10 and it subsequently flying around within the air.

4-21...Douglas Arizona. Caught on Camera by Mobile Scope truck chasing an A-10. Incident was reported to the Air Force Base. AF personnel copied the video. Unknown what the craft was.

The second excerpt at 1:57 depicts a UAP called 'the rubber duck' flying close above to what looks like a cloud cover, allegedly filmed from an RC-26 Metroliner.
I have another one I call the Rubber Duck UFO. It was filmed by a DOD RC-26 doing the Border Mission. The Mission Sensor Operator (MSO.) Was unable to determine what it was. The object changed altitude, speeds of 180 mph estimated and traveled a distance of over 20+ miles. Agents on the Ground were unable to gain visual of the object and the RC-26 broke station and RTB.

The third excerpt at 3:14 depicts a human-sized object floating around within the Tohono O'odom Reservoir. Note that for the last video the "leaker" acknowledges the presence of a military facility around, thus suggesting possible military equipment as an explanation.

The individual who sent me the A10 and rubber duck videos has just sent me yet another strange capture taken with FLIR. We tried our best to see if it may have a terrestrial explanation but we were stumped.

I think excerpts #1 and #3 are not very spectacular and have possibly very prosaic explanations. However, excerpt #2 "the rubber duck" is the one that still looks comparably ambiguous.

The one in the desert is something moving fast on the ground IMO...maybe a person on a motorcycle or ATV? If you look closely at the pixels around the object, I think it's bigger than it appears to be...meaning we aren't seeing something, like a vehicle below it.

I agree with you. Towards the end, I think you can see what might be dust clouds.

Edit: I take that back. The dust could be compression artifacts combined with what my brain is expecting to see. Low information zone for sure. Also, it’s “reservation” not “reservoir”.

I am sure this video requires pretty good analysis. I have zero free time to do anything helpful..

4:26 (when the object is on the far right of the screen) sure looks like a dust cloud to me.

The first clip looks like the aircraft is towing a sensor pod (like they use on test flights); hard to get a sense of what the trajectory is because the camera aircraft is also maneuvering

I am uncertain of the validity of the leak, but the author states the following:

Ok guys, here it is, the big reveal!! This is the footage that was directly leaked to me via a Department of Homeland Security agent. What you are looking at is the very first legitimate leak of a genuine UAP buzzing and then following an A10 Warthog from the nearby, Davis Monthan AFB. We have heard many stories lately of fighter jets coming into close contact with unknown objects but no footage has ever surfaced until today. The object in question was analyzed and found to be an authentic UAP of unknown origin that exhibited advanced flight capabilities. The object in question came extremely close to the A10, during its routine flight, and began following and even catching up to the jet before changing direction. The A10 seemed to have taken notice of the object as it eventually turned and circled the same area again. The unknown craft once again buzzed the A10 dangerously close before taking off in the opposite direction at high speeds. Towards the end of the footage, as the FLIR operator was observing the craft, it suddenly accelerates at high speeds and flies out of sight. Again, this is an authentic incident direct from DHS. The source wishes to remain anonymous but chose to share this with me because he felt it was the right thing to do. When I asked "Why me?" he replied, "because I love how you present your evidence

We need some solid references and sources svp.


I cannot see why this is ground breaking. We have a bit more pixels to work with, true. But, as we (I?) cannot make out if the camera is moving like a lunatic, or the blob is moving rapidly, I have no idea.

If this is really DHS footage, suddenly all the grainy Navy UAP footage looks like 8K panorama in comparison. Join the Navy!

The flying dot seems much closer than the plane. A bird, a bug? Remarkably unremarkable footage to be honest.

Just seems like something flying in the foreground far from the plane, I don't see any reason to spend too much time on this one.

I think I've seen extracts from this video before. My first reaction was 'obvious bird'. My second reaction is 'obvious bird'.

If the object is actually following the Warthog, it doesn't seem to be doing a great job of it. The object and the plane are only briefly in shot together, and when the plane makes a sharp turn around 0:30 the object doesn't turn with it, but goes out of shot. It is also very small compared to the plane, unless it is a lot further away. The simplest interpretation is that it is a relatively small object closer to the camera than the plane, which just happens to come into shot while the Flir is tracking the plane, then at some point the operator decides to track the object instead of the plane. In the early part of the video the object also seems to change shape from moment to moment, which would be consistent with a bird flapping its wings.

Here I stabilized for the nose of the A-10. Then took all the frames overlaid with a "minimum" blend mode to get the path of the bird-like object. I then inverted that (to make it white) and overlaid it on the stabilized video, with a small vertical offset, so you can see the object follows the sinusoidal flight path.

Beat me to it, here is a real bird in IR for reference:


Brilliant. Unmistakably a bird. Couldn't resist smiling watching your closeup and comparison. Still a UAP though, we don't know if it's a gannet, a cormorant, a gull, or a crow. Maybe it's classified.

My vote goes to the great horned owl, also found in Arizona

Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=alM0Eb8qMJ0

The bird in the "DHS" footage seems larger than the burrowing owl or the western mastiff bat (despite the largest bat in the US), despite both being endemic to Arizona. Its real-time wingbeat frequency (despite what seems like intermittent flapping) is slower than that of the burrowing owl and the mastiff bat.

Back in the day I was stationed in Sri Lanka for a year where I saw the world's largest bats, the Indian flying fox (or to be precise, the great flying fox in New Guinea is even one notch bigger). Their wingbeat frequency would match the one in the footage better. Alas, they're in another continent. A giant tree full of flying foxes suddenly taking off at early evening is quite the sight. Indiana Jones: The Temple of Doom wasn't filmed in Sri Lanka without a reason.

both look a bit fast for the beat in the UFO footage to me.
it depends on how much environmental lift you got. less lift more wing flaps.

and fuzzy video glitches make it kinda hard to really tell what is flap (or lack of flap) and what is artifact.

this snowy owl has different beats through the video (2 prior brief scenes with faster briefs, im timestamp embedding at longest footage section)

Albeit not usually flying at night, it's not impossible that the bird is a golden eagle or a red-tailed hawk, awakened or startled by the plane. The golden eagle would certainly qualify as a big bird with slow wingbeats.

Wingbeats at 10 seconds into the video following soar:

Given the sinusoildal flight path, I think it's like "bounding" or "flap-bounding" flight. Indicating a smaller bird.

A study on intermittent flight amongst birds:

https://academic.oup.com/icb/article/41/2/188/135398

Sinusoidal pattern is characteristic to all intermittent flight. In intermittent flight "periods of flapping are interspersed with periods of gliding".

According to the study, three kinds of intermittent flight are observed: (1) bounding (mostly small birds), (2) undulating (all kinds of birds) and (3) chattering (rarer, but includes magpies).

The study says "bounding flight paths often include substantial cyclic variations in height" which doesn't quite match the more steady sinusoidal UFO pattern Mick drew. Undulating seems likelier.

That was my immediate reaction too...A bird lower and closer to the camera.

PS - I'd further agree with the later suggestions of one of the larger raptors...That is exactly what I thought of.

Yup, and I think this footage can already be deemed 'explained'. The UFO is a bird on an undulating flight path with a wingbeat matching a medium to large-sized bird. Possibly an owl or a raptor.

Finches and other small birds have faster wingbeats and their sinusoidal pattern has more cyclic height variations.
 
Alledgly NY UAP Discussion is releasing today a 40 minutes high resolution version of the rubber duck video segment. It will be interesting to see whether this will be something one can reasonably work with or just another blurry mess.

The video is now online and the rubber duck comes into appearence at 22:40:

Unfortunately, the video seems to be lacking any spectacular close-ups as promised.
