A reasonable point. It's also presumably because the pilots
made no such visual contact that the lights on the putative
"craft" are described as pointing downward. However, a scene
of mild farce occurred at 00.30hrs:

"Les t=E9moins au sol voient 3 fois les F-16 passer.
Durant le troisi=E8me passage, ils voient les avions
tourner en cercle au centre de la premi=E8re observation:
grande formation en triangle."

(The witnesses on the ground see the F-16s pass three
times. During the third passage, they see the aircraft
turn in a circle in the center of the first observation:
a big triangular formation.)

In other words this whacking great thing is sitting over
the fighters while they fly round in a circle. Whatever the
turning circle of an F-16 is, even at near-stalling speed
it's going to be measured in hundreds if not thousands of
metres. And, when they get a contact at all, the pilots have
not-very-big dots on radar...

Draw your own conclusions, while I wait for the results of
my eyesight test on Henny, and for someone to say we've no
idea what the aliens are capable of...
