Not every single V-shaped formation of lights in the night sky is a UFO.
Some may be, but not all.
Case in point:
A group of 6 small aircraft pilots from a local airport in upper State New York did an experiment back in 1984.
They did about 18 night-time “missions”, i.e., flying in formation, sometimes with lights – sometimes without lights – – sometimes with little light.
This hoax fooled at least some of the witnesses.

At the same time, not every V-formation of lights is a hoax.
The “U” in UFO simply stands for “unidentified”.
It could be anything.
There are still unknowns
It is still difficult to dismiss every incident in the so-called Hudson Valley sightings in the early 1980s.
As for the 6 pilots’ V-formation footage, it is included in the following video:
