“Senior Chief Kevin Day is a key witness from the USS Princeton because of his position, rank, and experience. He was the Air Intercept Control Supervisor for the Princeton and for the Nimitz Strike Group. He was responsible for the radar operators as well as the use of those radars for air defense. He has very extensive experience with the SPY-1 phase shifting radar used on the ship as he worked on one of the first SPY-1 radar systems on the USS Vincennes. His performance rating in January 2005 from Captain J.L. Smith of the USS Princeton indicated that he ‘greatly exceeded standards.’ The Captain made the comment on the rating document, which is available later in this appendix: ‘He is my number #1 SCPO [Senior Chief Petty Officer]! A recognized expert in Air Defense, his impact within the Nimitz Strike Group has been phenomenal.’ The Senior Chief Day has 18 years of service at sea on Aegis radar systems and his medals included the Meritorious Service Medal and the Navy/Marine Corp Commendation Medal. He was also a Top Gun graduate for Strike-Fighter Tactics. He had seven deployments to the Middle East and has completed hundreds of air intercepts. A copy of these documents is available later in this appendix.

This extended commentary is noted because it is important to understand the level of competence and the capabilities of Senior Chief Day. In civilian life he has earned a degree in Business Administration and a Master Degree in Education. Kevin Day was first interviewed by Robert Powell on January 15, 2018. He indicated that he had not been interviewed by anyone else prior to that date. Mr. Day indicated that he had made notes of the November 14, 2004 event and was operating with his notes during the interview. Beginning in May of 2018 Mr. Day made several public interviews and became active on a Facebook chat site. Some of his comments are regarding topics to which he did not have first hand knowledge and may have been picked up from things either he read on Facebook sites or heard from others or just changes to memory. It is not the intent of this report to look for every inconsistency in a witness’s testimony but instead to look for consistencies between witnesses and draw a conclusion as to what actually occurred. It is believed the most accurate recounting of the Senior Chief’s experience was his original interview on January 15 with Mr. Powell.

Although not an interview, prior to his January 15th statements Mr. Day did make a posting on an internet forum known as Open Minds in December of 2010.

The details that he provided are very similar to the interview conducted on January 15. There are some statements made that are different such as a statement that the ‘Tic-Tac’ entered the water or that the video was taken on a HUD display rather than a ATFLIR. But as a whole, Mr. Day’s basic story has been consistent and in combination with statements from other witnesses allows the critical portions of this event to be pieced together.

Kevin Day’s experience with this incident did affect him emotionally and his emotions are evident in his voice during the January 15 interview. The fact that this event had such an impact on Mr. Day, and that there are also multiple witnesses, only strengthens the argument that these witnesses experienced an extraordinary event. Nonetheless, the emotional impact on Mr. Day requires us to look for corroborating evidence on the details that he has recounted. This has been done and the critical facts recounted by Mr. Day are supported by other witnesses.”

The November 2004 USS Nimitz Carrier Strike Group 11 UFO incidents occurred about a hundred miles south west of San Diego, California. The main UFO incident occurred on 14 November 2004 (Fravor and Slaight).

To my knowledge, seven U.S. Navy personnel, Kevin M. Day, David Fravor, P. J. Hughes, Omar Lara, Jim Slaight, Jason Turner and Gary Voorhis, have talked about the UFO incidents on the Internet.

Kevin M. Day was a radar operator aboard the USS Princeton.

David Fravor, who chased the UFO (resembled a white Tic Tac), was flying his F/A-18F Super Hornet jet fighter.

At the time of the UFO incident, Fravor was the commanding officer of the VFA-41 Black Aces, a U.S. Navy strike fighter squadron.

P. J. Hughes was an aviation technician aboard the USS Nimitz.

Omar Lara was a Flight Decker in Air Ops aboard the USS Nimitz.

Lieutenant Commander (later Commander) Jim Slaight was flying the second F/A-18F Super Hornet jet fighter during the UFO encounter.

Jason Turner was a Petty Officer Third Class (in Supply) aboard the USS Princeton.

Gary Voorhis was a Fire Controlman Petty Officer Third Class aboard the USS Princeton.

A large number of UFOs were recorded on radar on and off for several days during the November 2004 U.S. Navy exercise, according to USS Princeton radar operator Kevin M. Day.

Gary Voorhis experienced that the unknown objects “zoomed around at ridiculous speeds and angles and trajectories,” and that “it (the UFOs) was moving faster than our radar could register.”

“Petty Officer Third Class Jason Turner was in Supply and did not have access to radar or electronic data on the ship. However, he had a security clearance and as a result was able to view the IR video with the ship’s cryptology group. Jason was active in the service for 10 years and was stationed onboard the Princeton from January 2002 to March 2005.

Jason Turner was first interviewed by Robert Powell on January 11, 2018.”

“Gary Voorhis is also a key witness from the USS Princeton because he was in charge of the ship’s Aegis computer suite known as the Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC). This system allows the sharing of radar, electronic data, and any other sensor data between all the ships and aircraft in a Strike Group and coordinates this information with the ship’s weapon systems.”
