Black Triangles - The Belgian UFO Flap
- Probably the most astounding series of events involving "Black
Triangles" happened not in the U.S. but in Europe - to be more
specific in the skies over Belgium.
Beginning in November 1989, Belgian airspace had been violated on a
number of occasions, the Belgian Authorities receiving thousands of
reports of triangular UFOs. Indeed in December 1989, the Royal
Belgian Air Force (RBAF) was contacted by hundreds of terrified
citizens reporting a triangular craft with a light at each corner.
This caused the RBAF to agree that, with co-ordination at ground
level involving the assistance of the Police and local UFO research
groups etc., the RBAF would try to track and intercept
any "triangle" that put in an appearance. On at least two occasions
the RBAF scrambled F-16s [right] to intercept craft invading Belgian
airspace but despite having a top speed in excess of 2,000 km/h. the
F-16s arrived too late to discover anything.
General Wilfried de Brouwer stated:
"The Belgian skies have experienced extraordinary phenomena. One
option is extraterrestrial intelligence".
