The Patriots Jet Team Helps Our Investigation

The Patriots Jet Team helps our America Declassified investigators.

This week on America Declassified, Kari Bryon visits Patriots Jet Team founder Randy Howell in Byron, CA, as part of an investigation into a recently declassified CIA report on Area 51. The report claims UFO sightings were actually top-secret aircrafts being tested over the area. Kari will see how extreme flying maneuvers demonstrated by Randy can make a fighter jet appear to be an alien space craft.


The Patriots Jet Team is an action-packed, high performance aerobatic team based in Byron. They're one of the most elite flying demonstration jet teams in the world. The 6-plane squadron flies Aero L-39s, decommissioned fighter jets from the Czech Republic.
