The Belgium Wave UFO Case began on November 29th, 1989 when two police officers, who were out on patrol, spotted bright lights coming from above a nearby field.
As they drove closer to investigate what it was, they discovered it was a large black triangle in the sky. Each corner had a solid red light and in the center of the triangle was a blinking red light, slightly smaller than the three corner lights. As the officers watched on, the Belgium Wave UFO started moving silently towards a nearby town.
Reports started coming into authorities from citizens who reported a large, triangular object floating over the skies of Eupen, Belgium. Authorities immediately set off in pursuit and joined the crowd of people who watched the unidentified triangular object sit motionless above the town for over thirty minutes. Some 1,500 reports came in from people who saw the object, but shortly afterwards, it disappeared. At least for a while…
Four months later, in March 1990, there were more reports of an unidentified object, which were confirmed by military ground radar stations. The military decided to dispatch two F-16 fighter jets to investigate, but when they arrived, they weren’t able to see anything, despite having a radar lock on the object.
They continued pursuing towards their target, but it was said that the UFO(s) moved so fast that the pilot struggled to keep up and quickly ended up losing them. That was the last we saw of the UFO that’s become known as the Belgium Wave UFO.
It’s estimated that 13,500 people witnessed the incident, making it one of the most widely experienced UFO events of its time. Further more, the Belgian Air Force had no logical explanation for what it was that the thousands of citizens witnessed, but the military did acknowledge that ”unknown activity” had taken place, prompting them to reach out the the British.
The Belgian military contacted the UK’s Ministry of Defense who investigated the reports, but after it was found that there was no hostile or aggressive action taken by the Belgium Wave UFO, they determined the case was not worth their time or resources and stopped their investigation.
It’s still unknown what the cause of the ”lights in the sky” were, but it’s safe to assume it wasn’t a military craft. It’s said that there were even more sightings of the triangular UFO after March 1990. Each time, F-16 fighter jets were dispatched, but could never lock onto anything because their electrical systems malfunctioned until they broke off the pursuit and got away from the UFO, which seemed to be the cause of the F-16 system failures. The exact same thing happened to Iranian military fighter pilots in the 1976 Tehran UFO case.
Skeptics and critics claimed that the UFOs were in fact American stealth aircrafts on routine maneuvers, but the Air Force denies such allegations and claims they had no aircrafts over Belgium at any of the times there were sightings of the Belgium Wave UFO.
Many relate the UFO to the TRB3-B Astra, more on the vehicle at military.com.
