US veterans have shared their intriguing experiences with UFOs, including that one supposedly turned off 10 nuclear warheads.
The All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO) is probing reports of flying objects taking out American military equipment in a bid to "provide answers to the citizens of the country" – and two former members of the Air Force have been called forward to give their accounts this month.
One military veteran, former US Air Force ICBM launch officer Robert Salas, was contacted after he saw an orange flying disc turn off 10 warheads at the Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana in 1967, according to emails seen by the Daily Mail.

"I've been wanting to tell a government agency my story for over 50 years," Salas, 82, told the publication.
"It was a great big relief.
"They were very magnanimous. They listened intently. I gave them a complete report on the Malmstrom incidents.
"I'm more confident now than I was going in that they're trying to make a sincere effort."
An email sent to Salas from an AARO staff member on Friday (February 17) read: "I'm hopeful the collective contributions of patriots like you and the current level of government interest and investment will provide answers to the questions the citizens of our country have demanded for such a long time."

Another witness and former officer Dr Robert Jacobs was also contacted by the AARO.
He had been in charge of a telescopic camera team that filmed test missile launches at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California in the 1960s and shared a film allegedly showing a flying saucer shoot a test missile out of the sky taken in September 1964.
Jacobs said he saw footage where a disc flew up to a moving missile, shot a series of "beams" at it, and flew away.
"I saw that," he said of the incident. "I don't give a goddamn what anybody else says about it. I saw that on film. I was there."
Author Robert Hastings, who has spoken to a total of 167 veterans about "more than a hundred UFO incursions at nuclear weapons sites during the Cold War era and beyond", said the AARO will also interview nine other witnesses who have seen similar incidents.
He said in a blog post on Sunday (February 19) that AARO director Dr Sean Kirkpatrick had asked him to put the organisation in touch with the veterans after a Senate employee read his book UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites.
He wrote: "Since 1973, I have interviewed 167 of those veterans regarding their experiences.
"Kirkpatrick asked whether I would be able to contact the individuals with whom I am still in touch, to learn whether they would be willing to testify before AARO staffers.
"I suggested that Kirkpatrick's staff first contact former US Air Force ICBM launch officer Bob Salas, who had been on duty during an incident at Malmstrom AFB, Montana, on March 24/25, 1967, when an orange, disc-shaped UFO had briefly hovered over the front gate at the Oscar Flight Launch Control Facility.
"Seconds after one of Salas' Security Police guards frantically called down to the launch capsule to report the UFO to him, all ten of the ICBMs dropped offline, one after the other. In other words, they were unlaunchable and it took several hours to repair and retarget them."
