The grainy black and white photos appear to show a thin, cylindrical object flying over Baghdad.
The UFO, now known as the “Ghost of Baghdad”, was reportedly photographed over the Iraqi city by a US Reaper drone in May 2022.
The US Air Force reportedly classified it as an Unexplained Aerial Phenomenon (UAP) due to its unusual characteristics, including the lack of wings or any other apparent means of propulsion.
After being leaked to reporters Jeremy Corbell and George Knapp, the photos were made public.
“What George and I discovered was Reaper drone footage over an active war zone,” Jeremy Corbell told the Mail Online. “They show an anomalous object that has been designated as a UAP by our own Air Force.
“The object appears to have no flight control surfaces, no traditional reaction propulsion, and is cooler than its surroundings.
“It’s not your grandmother’s rocket that we’re looking at. »
