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.
