438/442 Fri 13 Jul 1990 10:44:00 From: Harvey Stewart To: All Subj: Belgian Ufo's Attr: local UFO--------------------------------------------- UFO REPORTS HAVE BELGIANS BEFUDDLED BRUSSELS (AP) Belgium's Air Force has joined scores of citizens befuddled by hundreds of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFO's) sighted across night skies in recent months. In the latest report, Two air force F-16 jet fighters used their air radar screens to track an object that, according to a military official, "exceeded the limits of conventional aviation." Speaking at a news conference yesterday, Belgian Air Force Colonel Wilfried de Brouwer said the UFO dived from about 3050 meters (10,000 feet) to 1220 meters (4000 feet) in two seconds. At the same time it increased its speed from 966 km/hhr (600 mph) to 1770 KM/hr (1100 mph). De Brouwer said the air force decided to wait before announcing the sighting, which happened in the early hours of March 31, 1990, " because we wanted to compare the radar sightings." This article was taken from the Toronto Star newspaper July 13,1990. Has anyone else heard of the news conference. I wonder if it was the colonel acting on his own or if it was officially sanctioned by the Belgian Air Force. --- Maximus-CBCS v1.00 * Origin: The Homestead * TORONTO, ONT * (416) 272-4067 * (1:259/415)
