In the 1980s, Popular Mechanics featured an intriguing cover story that detailed encounters with a colossal black flying wing in California’s desert skies. Throughout the decades, similar reports involving massive Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAPs) have continued, which include ongoing sightings of enigmatic black triangles reported across the globe.

This week on The Micah Hanks Program, we look at some of history’s most famous cases involving encounters with “silent giants” that include massive black triangular UAP, the “mothership” observed by pilot Kenji Terauchi over Alaska in 1986, and an incredible encounter by a military police officer over Johnston Island in the late 1980s. What were these mysterious craft, and could they have any potential links to secretive military technologies that have remained hidden within the world of U.S. black projects?

Have you had a UFO/UAP sighting? Please consider reporting your sighting to the UAP Sightings Reporting System, a public resource for information about sightings of aerial phenomena.
