I see you guys got a nice discussion going regarding the TR3B.
I spend most of my time on ATS in the Aliens&UFOs discussion forum. Lately I have become interested in the alleged TR3B because of a well known UFO
incident. I couldn't find much mention of that case in this thread.
I am talking about the Belgium UFO wave from 1989 through 1990. I have a feeling this sighting could be this TR3B you guys are talking about. It's
either that or that craft was alien in my opinion.
Allow me to present the case.
A basic description of the case can be found here:
The craft was photographed by a civillian. The picture has been scientificly analysed for decades and has recently been proven authentic.
The SOBEPS members – which investigation methods, based on scientific validation of facts, are reliable – ask for an analysis of the picture
to Marc Acheroy, nuclear physicist at the Royal Military School; to professor François Louange, from a private digital imagery laboratory which
cooperates with the CNRS (“Centre National de Recherche Scientifique”, National Center of Scientific Research, France) and the French Army; to the
photography service of the Belgian royal institute of artistic patrimony, which has an efficient photographic laboratory; and to Dr. Richard Haines,
who works for NASA in California. Result, after years of analysis: the Petit-Rechain picture is not faked.
Here is the picture:
Belgium Triangle (TR3B?)
The scientific analysis yielded some interesting results.
Ten years later, the SOBEPS asks the Orsay Optical Institute for counter-analysis. The purpose of this manoeuvre is to analyse the picture with
more recent software and to compare the results with the old data. Result: the picture is not faked, and they have discovered something rather
surprising, which was invisible until then: a vortex of moving particles surrounding the vehicle. To this day, no one really knows the nature of those
particles. It could be an advanced propulsion technology.
The UFO was tracked on radar and chased by F16 attack fighters but they found themselves heavily outclassed by the UFO. The Belgium authorities were
baffled and launched an investigation. They fully cooperated with private investigators and the media, which is unheard of in most countries regarding
the subject of UFOs.
The radar data gave an indication of the amazing performance of the UFO.
First lock on the target designated by the CRC. Position: "on the nose" 6 NM (Nautical Miles), 9000 feet, direction: 250. The target speed
changes within minimum time from 150 to 970 knots, altitude coming down from 9000 to 5000 feet, then up to 11000 feet, and, shortly after, down to
ground level. From this results a "break lock" after some seconds, the pilot losing the radar contact.
After lock on by the F16s the UFO appeared as a diamond shape on the radar.

The Belgium Royal Airforce never found an explanation for the strange craft. They released their official report to the public for all to see.

So what do you think? Could this incident have been the elusive TR3B?
I'm still undecided myself.
