A lot of mysterious UFO sightings were reporting during the Second World War, and because of the frequency with which fighter pilots reported them, a name was attributed to the – foo fighters. Yes, the name of the famous rock & roll band is attributed to these strange sightings of the European and especially Pacific Operations Theater.

The first time when UFOs were reported during World War 2 was 1944, and the US 415 Night Fighter Squadron was the one to do it. Of course, the sightings were considered to be nothing more than some secret projects, either weapons or recon equipment. However, since no information was officially disclosed, neither after the war was over, and because both parties in the war were at a loss as to what their provenance was, a lot of different theories emerged.
