Nicholas comandorul Grigorie, himself MIG pilot and graduate of the French Institute for Security Aeronavelor therefore one of the Air Force specialists to investigate such incidents. Officer reported for the newspaper Gândul how, row on row, all assumptions that could provide a scientific explanation of chance were cancelled. First, have been excluded natural causes: the device has not been hit by a bird (in Romania because the birds not to fly at the height of 6,500 meters, and the body of the plane was not found any trace of organic matter), nor a piece of ice (because the sky was clear and did not contain any conditions that norişor with water to freeze) or by a meteorite, because no astronomical data confirms entry of such bodies in the air that day.

The object that struck the device was a motion of rotating around its own ax, have a trajectory towards oblică trajectory aircraft, but rejected the assumption that the analysis had been talking about a projectile. "We can say with certainty what was not, but not what it was - an object that struck the MIG, but we do not know what material was or origin", declared to us lt.-com.

Everything we could confirm was that, indeed, during the 67de milliseconds by "unidentified object" in the images are caught in carlingă see fugar and also two objects have passed through before the aircraft "as something which passes through the front of a car, but without a hit."
Neither European experts have not found an explanation
