This UFO video clip reminded me what I have seen many times at
air shows - modern jet fighter(s) flying in formation with WWII
plane(s), except in this case the WWII plane may have been
altered to look like a flying disk.

One reason that I suspect that this is the case is that there
are two consective frames at the 7 second mark of the video that
are not consistent. The first frame shows the flying disk and
two jet fighters far away in a bright sky. The features of the
fighters, as well as the trees where the sky and hill meet, are
blurred/bleached while the disk is darker and more distinct. In
the second frame the fighters now appear to be bigger (much
closer to the observer?) while the disk remains about the same
size. All three objects in the second frame are now equally dark
and distinct.

Another reason I suspect that this UFO video was faked is that
in one frame the fighters are about 5 or 6 wing spans apart
while in the next frame they are now about 1 wing span apart.
Closing in so fast, I expected to see the two fighters collide
in the next frame but this was not the case. This rapid change
in separation between the fighters cannot be easily explained as
perspective since the fighters were not seen flying edge-on in
the distance but were flying past nearly overhead close to the

That said, there are other accounts where fighter(s) were
observed chasing flying disks or UFOs in the sky that have been
reported by more credible witnesses. One of these was astronomer
J. Allen Hynek who at the time was consultant to the United
States Air Force on UFOs. During a visit to Toronto in the
1970s, Hynek shared his own UFO sighting with us which happened
while vacationing with family/friends in a rural part of Canada.
He expressed his frustration when his employer, the USAF, denied
him access to information about his own UFO sighting and
realised then that there was an ongoing cover-up on UFOs...
