Belgian UFO Wave
Over 2000 UFO sightings were reported over Belgium between November 1989- April 1990. The phenomenon became so pervasive that authorities planned to scramble F-16's to investigate in the event that police reports of visual sightings could be corroborated with radar evidence. This plan came to fruition on March 30, 1990 when two F-16's were sent to investigate anomalies picked up through a combination of radar and visual observation. The jets attempted to lock into objects they were tracking on radar but were unsuccessful in doing so; the crafts they were tracking reportedly were observed to "jump huge distances in seconds" and "accelerate beyond human capacity." No official explanation has been given for these events.
