The videos had previously been leaked.
The Pentagon said it released the footage to “to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real or whether or not there is more to the videos.
A statement on the Department of Defense website said: “After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems, and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena.”

Watch the Pentagon's three declassified UFO videos taken by U.S. Navy pilots
The declassification of the videos late Monday was to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, the Pentagon said in a statement Monday. The footage, which shows unidentified objects flying at high speeds in the Earth's atmosphere along with audio of Navy pilots expressing shock and awe, was initially leaked in 2007 and 2017. The U.S. Navy formalized a reporting process last year for pilots to report incidents of UFO sightings.
The Department of Defense released three videos taken by U.S. Navy pilots revealing mysterious flying objects that to this day remain unidentified.
The declassification of the videos late Monday, one of which was taken in 2004 and the subsequent two taken in 2015, was meant to “clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos,” the Pentagon said in a statement Monday.
The footage, which shows unidentified objects flying at high speeds in the Earth’s atmosphere along with audio of Navy pilots expressing shock and awe, was initially leaked in 2007 and 2017. The videos were taken during training flights and the 2017 leaks were published by the New York Times.
“The U.S. Navy previously acknowledged that these videos circulating in the public domain were indeed Navy videos,” the Pentagon’s statement read. “After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems, and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena.”
“The aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterized as ‘unidentified’,” it said.

Meet the Top Gun Pilot Who Chased a UFO in an F/A-18F Super Hornet
WINDHAM, N.H. — In 2004, David Fravor, then a Lt. Commander and aviator in the U.S. Navy, saw something in the skies he'd never seen before. He wasn't sure what it was, but he decided to follow it in his F/A-18 Super Hornet, and became convinced that the object's maneuvering could not be explained by the existing capabilities of modern aircraft.
“It was far beyond the technology that we have,” he told VICE News.

Previously leaked videos of US Navy pilots encountering unexplained aerial phenomena have been released by the Pentagon.
Navy pilots recorded the footage of what appeared to be Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) in November 2004 and the other two in January 2015, but they had been circulating in the public domain after they were leaked in 2007 and 2017.

Hunting UFOs in my F-16
Compilation of two cloud surfing flights in a U.S. Navy F-16 (...yes, you read that correctly--the Navy does have F-16s). Spoiler alert: I did not find any UFOs. Again.
People seem to misinterpret the word my in the title: it's not meant in the sense of ownership but rather it was my ride in the moment.
Thought about putting this to music but figured you can always mute the audio and play whatever song you prefer...

Did U.S. Fighter Pilots See a UFO?
Video shot by U.S. fighter pilots on a training mission off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida, is making even skeptics do a double take. Pilots recently reported seeing mysterious objects that could reach hypersonic speeds and still turn on a dime. The New York Times even reported on the sighting, something generally reserved for tabloids. The newspaper giant published a story five days ago with the headline: “'Wow, What Is That?' Navy Pilots Report Unexplained Flying Objects.”

Not believe with UFO. Talk with this pilot

The two pilots, Cmdr. David Fravor and Lt. Cmdr. Jim Slaight, flew so close to the location of the aircraft that their radar signatures couldn’t be separated from the unknown object’s. They then noticed that the sea appeared to be churning before the scene descended into utter fucking madness, per the Times:
Hovering 50 feet above the churn was an aircraft of some kind—whitish—that was around 40 feet long and oval in shape. The craft was jumping around erratically, staying over the wave disturbance but not moving in any specific direction, Commander Fravor said. The disturbance looked like frothy waves and foam, as if the water were boiling.
When the aircraft approached, Fravor told the paper, “It accelerated like nothing I’ve ever seen” and disappeared, causing him to be “pretty weirded out.” But then something happened that weirded him out even more. When the jets began to retreat to another position 60 miles away, radar showed the object reappeared there in less than a minute.
