I be your pardon but, though honored to be included in your Hall
of Fame, I doubt that I should, since:

a) item 11 above is but the same as item 10

b) I am not its author, merely reporting it (mmmh! the
messenger-shooting habit is becoming more and more common here
'round, isn't it?)

But, for sake of argument, let's say I give it some merit. May I
answer your objection by a question: are you meaning "25 videos
and one photograph exist" of THAT specific object on THAT
specific night, at THAT SAME specific time as the ground
observations AND the radar targets (well! I might have lost
something made known AFTER I last read SOBEPS reports), or are
you more generally referring to pictures and videos of OTHER
sightings of the Belgian wave (like the Alfarano one of a landing

IMHO that would be quite a different matter.

I remain waiting for you to clear us such detail, before even
discussing that other detail of the UFO that played cat and mouse
game with F16 pursuers, something of which plenty of useful and
instructive examples exist in UFO literature.
