According to John Lear and others, the Pentagon wanted to make a partial UFO disclosure documentary around 1973, and was the first attempt by the government to release information to the public. The result of this motivation was a documentary released in 1973, hosted by Rod Serling, (from The Twilight Zone). The documentary was called: UFOs: It Has Begun, but was originally titled UFOs: Past, Present and Future. It was produced by Sandler Films which is rumored to be a CIA front, but I've not found evidence of that. At the end of the film, Lear claims it was supposed to show the actual landing at Holloman AFB. At the last minute, the Pentagon withdrew and instead had the ending replaced with a "dramatic reenactment"'.

The videos, all taken from cockpit cameras, show pilots struggling to lock their radars on oval-shaped vessels that, on screen, look vaguely like giant flying Tic Tacs. The strange aircraft — no claims are made about their possible origins or makeup — appear to hover briefly before sprinting away at speeds that elicit gasps and shouts from the pilots. Elizondo, in an internal Pentagon memo requesting that the videos be cleared for public viewing, argued that the images could help educate pilots and improve aviation safety. But in interviews, he said his ultimate intention was to shed light on a little-known program Elizondo himself ran for seven years: a low-key Defense Department operation to collect and analyze reported UFO sightings.
