In November 1990, ten Belgians had and told Reuters he saw a triangular object with three lights, flying slowly and silently. It was actually a Soviet satellite that disintegrated in the atmosphere.

Ok let's engage then. From the clip you reference, it is said that ONE of the radar tapes was analyzed. Not all three.
Triangles and other types of UFOs appeared over Belgium again on the night of March 30-31, 1990. National police again spotted a 3-light configuration flying in the sky and contacted the radar station at nearby Glons, Belgium. Glons acknowledged the radar target on their screens and contacted the NATO radar station at Semerzake who confirmed the same unknown target. Another radar station at Zaventem eventually tracked the UFO, as well. Two Belgian Air Force jet fighters were then scrambled at Beaurechain to chase down the craft and try to identify it since it was executing an unauthorized invasion of Belgian air space. Both pilots had the same radar return on their radar scopes at times but were unable to get a visual on the object or objects in the area at the time. The jet interceptors were able to get missile locks on the craft at various times, but the craft would somehow jump off missile lock and take dramatic, evasive maneuvers changing speeds from approximately 170 mph to 1100 mph almost instantaneously and changing altitudes as dramatically. The jets eventually returned to base without incident and the radar tapes were analyzed by the Belgian Air Force’s Electronic War Center.

On the same note, based on my request, user "chikane" from Paracast forum has just finished translation of the 16 minute RTL video that I mentioned in my previous post. Guests in the studio were Auguste Meessen and Pierre Magarain.

In contradiction with other pointed out UFO sightings, for the first time a radar contact has been positively observed, in correlation with different sensors of the Air Force (CRC, TCC, RAPCON, EBBE and F-16 radar), and this in the same area as visual observations. This has to be explained by the fact that the March 30-31 UFOs have been noticed at +/- 10000 feet altitude, whereas in the former cases there was always talk of visual contacts at very low altitude.
ROYAL BELGIAN AIR FORCE REPORT ON THE OBSERVATION OF UFOs DURING THE NIGHT OF MARCH 30-31, 1990
The incident of the F-16 has allowed me, in fact, to find a trace that I can not explain a conventional manner. This is the linear trace in Figure 16 (above). The straight line is the trace of a UFO, detected by the two radars military ground during the flight of F-16 during the night of 30/31 March 1990. The lower trace shows part of the path followed by the first F-16. He had activated its IFF (identification friend or foe) and in principle the radar Semmerzake should retain its echoes, but the fighters are small and very agile. In turn, the radar lost track and substituted echoes from the second F-16. This explains the difference between the recorded points (I.375) and the continuous curve representing the trajectory of the first F-16 that Mr. Gilmard adopted (II.fig.10.4). The straight lines defined by the open circles appeared at the same time to Semmerzake. The closed circles are the excerpts from the reports I get listings at Glons. Spatiotemporal correspondence indicates that the two military radar detected the same "object".

I'm watching Secret Access (UFO special) on the history channel and they get into this photo too which they state it is not a fake. What gives?
Sceptics say there is no background in the photograph and that there is no element which would allow the calculation of the object's size or distance from the camera.
Wim van Utrecht, a Belgian sceptic, has reproduced a copy of the photograph with devices.
A computer graphics simulation method to reproduce the photograph was developed by a Belgian mathematician, Thierry Veyt at The University of Liège Laboratory of Astrophysics, wherein the apparent "shake" motion, that results in the lights of the craft appearing blurred or out of focus in the photograph contradicts eye-witness statements.
This, along with the anonymity of the photographer and fact that the image was not produced publicly until 4 months after the alleged event brings the authenticity of the image into question.
