US military pilots described a series of encounters with UFOs in 60 minutes.
A naval pilot said such sightings were almost daily.
A Defense Department report on the sightings is expected in June.

Former U.S. Navy pilot Ryan Graves told CBS 60 Minutes that pilots training off the U.S. coast saw UFOs almost every day.
Sunday's show dealt with a number of alleged encounters between U.S. military pilots and UFOs, some of which were filmed and released by the Pentagon.
One encounter occurred in 2014 when Graves and his squadron saw F / A-18F UFOs in restrictive airspace near Virginia Beach, southeast Virginia.
In 2019, U.S. military pilots recorded UFOs in the same area in images they received from the program. The Pentagon told CBS News that it could not identify the objects.
Graves said such sightings occurred almost every day.
"Every day. Every day for at least a couple of years," he said of the sightings.
He discussed an encounter off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida in 2015 that was caught on camera by one of his pilots.
"It's hard to explain. You have rotation, you have great heights. You have propulsion, right? I don't know. I don't know what it is, frankly," remarked Graves.
On the show, several other US military pilots who saw UFOs described the experience.
Lue Elizondo, the former head of a Pentagon project to investigate UFO sightings, said some objects appeared to defy what was believed technically possible.
"Imagine a technology that can do 6 to 700 G-forces, that can fly at 13,000 miles per hour, that can dodge the radar, and that can fly through air and water and possibly space. And oh, by the way, has no obvious signs of propulsion, no wings, no control surfaces and yet they can withstand the natural effects of earth's gravity, "he said.
In April, the U.S. military confirmed the authenticity of several videos showing pilots and UFO encounters that were released in the media. This was followed by the release of several videos last year showing encounters with UFOs.
Following the sightings, the Department of Defense set up a special task force last August to investigate them. The report is due to be published in June.
Elizondo informed the program that after going through all the options, his team was unable to explain some of the sightings.
"We're going through our due diligence. Is it a new type of cruise missile technology that China has developed? Is it some kind of high-altitude balloon that is doing reconnaissance?" he said. "Ultimately, when you've exhausted all of those what-ifs and there still remains the fact that this is in our airspace and it's real, it becomes imperative and then it becomes problematic."
