"It was twilight but still light enough to see."Below one of the objects I saw three powerful search lights directed to the ground and one orange red flickering light."
“We continued to observe the object as it circled over the city of Eupen. It appeared to be heading toward the forest. On each side of the object there was a kind of laser beam and a ball that was leaving the object and coming back as if the ball were to measure something, so it was easy for us to keep track of it in the sky.”
“....state-of-the-art analysis was provided by a number of laboratories on the superior photograph of a craft, one of the best UFO pictures on record......A team under the direction of Professor Marc Acheroy discovered that a triangular shape became visible when overexposing the slide. After that, the original color slide was further analyzed by Frangois Louange, specialist in satellite imagery with the French national space research center, CNES; Dr. Richard Haines, former senior scientist with NASA; and finally Professor Andre Marion, doctor in nuclear physics and professor at the University of Paris-Sud and also with CNES.” (p. 30)
The technology used by these crafts was so advanced that even today, twenty years later, it is not available. The most important conclusion is that there must have been air activities of unknown origin in the airspace of Belgium. The number of cases and the credibility of the vast number of witnesses leave us with an intriguing mystery.
“The only reasonable hypothesis is that of unidentified flying objects... of extraterrestrial origin."
It seems that many of the events that took place in Belgium in 1989-1990 were simply misperceptions of ordinary objects. One can not conclusively state that no alien spaceships were seen during this period but a vast majority of the sightings can be explained.... Looking at the data being presented there appears to be nothing to indicate that anything closely resembling an alien spaceship was actually seen during the wave. There are tantalizing reports but these do not seem to stand up under close scrutiny....
Despite the downplaying by such Europeans as Wim Van Utrecht, Jenny Randles, Peter Brookesmith, Eduardo Russo, Jean-Pierre Pharabod, and others, we discover that American UFOlogists have firmly engraved the Belgian wave into UFO history... The admittance of a classic UFO case as being explained is almost unthinkable... For them, to remove the Belgian wave from the UFO history would be the equivalent of proclaiming a priceless religious artifact a hoax.

The three lights at the corner of the platform shrank inwards so that the whole thing became a single circle of light and shot off into the distance faster than the eye could follow
The F-16s ascended to 3,000 feet and locked on to a target, confirming back to base that they were tracking a "structured UFO". But then suddenly, according to the pilots, it began to behave in an erratic manner.
The on-board radar screens registered a quickly changing diamond shape, which rapidly accelerated to 600mph and then abruptly slowed to 170mph afterwards. Next the object appeared to plunge 3,300 feet in two seconds and accelerated from 170mph to 1,100mph in the same time without any trace of a sonic boom.
During their 65 minute observation, the pilots took 15 photographs. But pursuit in their F-16s, capable of more than twice the speed of sound, proved impossible.
Over the previous months, there had been sporadic sightings of UFOs in the skies over Belgium. But now it seemed there was hard scientific evidence to support them.
According to the instruments aboard the fighters, the craft pulled away at 46G - 46 times the force of gravity – and enough to crush a human skeleton. The object then headed west across the English Channel towards the South Eastern coast of Britain. The British however decided no response was required and no threat was posed (as per released FOI documents. DEFE 24 1970.)

Anything more on the photographs?
the most compelling account for me stretches back to the very beginning and the THIRTY-minute sighting by officers Heinrich Nicoll & Hubert Von Montigny at 5.45pm
"On November 29, 1989, a large craft with triangular shape flew over the town of Eupen. The gendarmes von Montigny and Nicol found it near the road linking Aix-la-Chapelle and Eupen. It was stationary in the air, above a field which it illuminated with three powerful beams. The beams emanated from large circular surfaces near the triangle's corners. In the center of the dark and flat understructure there was some kind of 'red gyrating beacon.' The object did not make any noise. When it began to move, the gendarmes headed towards a small road in the area over which they expected the object to fly. Instead, it made a half-turn and continued slowly in the direction of Eupen, following the road at low altitude. It was seen by different witnesses as it flew above houses and near City Hall".
Auguste Meessen, professor of physics at the Catholic University in Louvain
"Unfortunately, no explanation has been found to date. The nature and origin of the phenomenon remain unknown. One theory can, however, be definitely dismissed since the Belgian Armed Forces have been positively assured by American authorities that there has never been any sort of American aerial test flight."

Black triangle reports date back to the mid 1970s (and occasionally before then)..
'spotted a large, dark, mysterious triangular object descend slowly and almost silently from the sky. It bore lights at each apex and a pulsating red light in the centre'
