I'm not entirely surprised it's red, as (unless you know
something no one else does) the RBAF F-16s were chasing
monnbeams, or whatever, on 30/31 March 90, whereas van Utrecht

No need to repeat the date again, is there?
And the words 'may have been' are not quite the ones one would
use in "explaining" something "away", are they?

Note that only once (00.32hrs) while the F-16s were in the air
did both the Glons and Semmerzake radars simultaneously have a
contact with an "unknown" on the same heading (110 deg. 6NM
from Beauchevin, alt 6000ft). However, the control center at
Maastricht couldn't see this on radar. Likewise while the F-16s
were aloft, the highest speed of the OVNIs mentioned in the
RBAF report I have is 740kt, tho' some rapid accelerations
(eg 100 - 600kt between 00.39 and 00.41hrs) were noted.
And while the 't=E9moins au sol' kept seeing lights, the pilots
never made visual contact, and the ground reports of the
position of the lights seem not to match what was appearing
on the radars.

Someone has scribbled "brouillage" (confusion) in the margin of
this copy - which seems to me the best summary of the case so far.

Keep taking the pills, Henny. Or (te he) try eating dates.

Yours &c
