It really did look like this....
The mystery of the iconic Petit-Rechain black triangle UFO photo has finally been solved. The photographer, a man named only as Patrick, has admitted making the UFO out of polystyrene in an interview with mainstream Belgian TV channel RTL-TVI.
The photograph was taken 21 years ago in 1990 at the height of the Belgian UFO flap and was an instant hit around the world, with many publications using the photo as a kind of banner for the UFO phenomenon.
It was known as the Petit-Rechain photo after the Belgian town where it was photographed, but Patrick revealed he and some friends made the model in a short space of time before photographing it some hours later that evening.

I have seen this craft. I did not know what it was at the time and still cannot say it WAS the TR-3B. I have lived near military bases my whole life and have seen virtually every military plane made. What flew over my house in the early / mid 80's was a perfect triangle with white strobes on all three corners and a white light in the center. It did not display wing tip marker lights and was completely silent. It appeared to be pretty low in the sky, and was flying in the opposite direction of the typical military traffic. I assumed it to be a new military plane, and asked some people (who had top-secret clearance) if anything new or unusual had come in during the night (they were on duty at the base that night). They did not know anything about it. I saw it late at night, and have never seen it or anything like it again. This was in south Texas.
