I live in France, and speak French. I can say that the audio does not seen 'forced' as it often does in some staged videos, so in honesty I think
that the viewers genuinely could not explain what they we watching. However, this does not mean it was unexplainable.
Over here they are very open about UFOs, with France being the first to open 'secret' government files, politicians open to discuss the idea of UFO
and aliens without ridicule. People are so much more pragmatic, and see things as they are. It is of no surprise to me that if emailed, an air base
commander, or a commander of the PAF would have responded. It would also be very unlikely that they would lie, as this would be a matter of public
record for the future, and well French people take this very seriously.
If he responded that the PAF planes were there, at that moment in time, on that particular day, they were there. If they were there, there would be
lights, some noise maybe, and well, these guys can FLY. This is not some useless aerobatics team, they are pin point in accuracy, timing, and an
If we take that as truth, why would we therefore look at another explanation?
As for the witnesses, lets be honest, not everyone makes a good witness. This 'Ludovic', sees 'a saucer 10 meters above his head or something',
lets get real. It reminds me of the wind farm incident in the UK where people reported 'octopus like tentacles' swooping from the sky, saucers,
lights, aliens, heck if we asked enough people I am sure some would say they saw the Staypuft Marshmallow Man up there.
One video of light, one dubious witness, does not a UFO make. Especially when we have a reasonable, logical and rational explanation put forward by
someone with expert knowledge.
Every witness comes to the table with their own preconceptions, and their own agenda, even if they don't mean to have them/it;
I used to study law, and it is amazing how inconsistent stories can be. For example;
A person sees another person running down a road, dressed in red. The Police turn up to ask questions, and the person then thinks that the person must
be a criminal. The Police asks if they see the person running from a specific car, even if the person was running from the direction of the specific
car but not linked to it, or even running past it, yes, they were running in that direction. The Police ask if they were wearing a red football top.
The witness says that they were wearing a top of the same color red that possibly matched. The police asked if they had their face covered, the
witness remembers a hat, that when questioned could possibly have been a mask pulled up... Suddenly, we have a criminal wearing a mask and a red
football jersey running from a car that had recently be broken into... In reality, the 'person' could have been an innocent jogger, wearing a red
coat and hat because it was a cold day.
The fact 'Ludovic' was interviewed by a 'UFO' investigator immediately colors things in my mind, as the human mind wants to make sense of things
if doesn't understand... hence - lights in the sky, interviewed by UFO investigator = UFO. From there, you always have the perception due to the
media that UFO = Saucer.
Mix into this a liking for Pastis, maybe prescription drugs, heck it was late at night, you have infinite variables;
For me, knowing France, if a member of the armed forces says it was the PAF, it was probably that. I am not for adding 2+2 and making 5 just because
'we all want to believe'.
Just my 0.02€
