I would like to start a new feature, that of UFO sightings from yesteryear…with a brief description on this blog, and links to relevant websites, with indepth discussions.
To kick us off i will start with:
1 The Belgian Triangles
Dates: November 1989 – April 1990 [Belgian Authorities recieved over 2500 reports on Triangular UFOs].
The RBAF (Royal Belgian Air Force) decided to co-operate/work with SOBEPS (Local UFO Research Group= Society Of Belgian Studies of Celestial Phenomena), with SOBEPS reporting from ground level, whilst RBAF would attempt to track and intercept.
They never intercepted them, as the UFOs were far too quick for the F-16s.
However, F-16s can fly faster than stealth aircraft, so why no interceptions, and why were the UFOs more agile.
AN Excellent resource is from UFO Evidence see here for detailed reports on this (17 articles/documents).
A short article from About.com here
UFOs over Belgium? (at geocities) here (very good info).
