This morning, I walked out on my terras, cup of coffee in one hand, smoke in the other. And was greeted by this:
I live in one of the medium/large cities in Belgium, and had the exact same angle of view as you see in the pic, so I instantly recognised it when I
read an article about it tonight. This was seen in several areas over Belgium this morning, covering about a third of the country.
I saw it just as it was starting the bottom of the spiral, and it was moving much faster than a commercial jet, at least twice that speed as it shot
off in that straight line. So I thought it was one of those corporate jets with some CEO in it showing off his toy to his guests… lol
The article states that it was first reported as “calibration tests” by Belgocontrol (civil air navigation service). Then they that “it wasn’t
one of ours, it was an American F16 that was in the country for a repair at a company called SABCA in the city of Charleroi.” The department of
defence confirmed this and said “After such a repair, everything needs to be tested again. The F16 flew tests at 10.000 ft and also penetrated the
I haven’t seen a fighter jet in the Belgian skies for many years. I got a bad feeling about this. Is this a subtle sign of things seriously heating
up, or have I been on ATS too much? I also read several weeks ago that the US reopened some sort of military logistics facility here in Belgium that
had been shut down years ago. I should also add that there is an airforce base in our country where US nuclear weapons have been stored since the
sixties. I was there once for a commercial photography job and basically was telling this pilot where to park his F16 for the right angle of view to
fit the layout of the advertisement. lol
So, ATS friends, should I believe the repair job and testing story, or should I head for the bunker?
You know.. with our capital in lock down last week and all. And since we moved from the highest threat level 4 to level 3, there are still around 1000
military people guarding the streets of little Belgium.
Anybody have any ideas about what the strategic importance of Belgium might be to the US? I’m not very educated on military strategy matters.
