China's UFO-shaped helicopter

Reports stated that the Super Great White Shark is 7.6 metres long, 3 metres high and can seat two people on board the chopper. The schematic drawings of the helicopter reportedly show its outer shell covering the rotors and engines. This will enhance the helicopter's stealth capability, making it harder for radar to detect the chopper, as per reports.

The prototype was reportedly displayed at the China Helicopter Exposition in Tianjin last week. But it has been unclear when the design would be implemented practically. The details of China's UFO-like helicopter and its costs are not divulged till date.

US Navy acknowledges UFO presence

The craze for UFO-shaped objects has been a global trend. Previously, in September, the U.S Navy has acknowledged the presence of ‘unidentified’ objects in previously released purported UFO videos that were made public by Blink-182 singer Tom DeLonge’s UFO research organization. The Navy spokesperson, Joseph Gradisher, said that “the Navy considers the phenomena contained/depicted in those 3 videos as unidentified”.

John Greenwald, the author of a civilian archive of declassified government documents, had requested information in August from the Navy regarding the videos. The videos were released by Navy Pilots and had gone viral in 2017 and 2018. Talking about the development to an American news publication, Greenwald said that he expected that when the US military would finally address his videos, they would eventually have labelled them as drones or balloons. He added his surprise, however, at the Navy going on record to describe the videos' contents as 'phenomena' and 'unidentified'.
