Jean Pierre,

Thank you for your this information.

Look at these sets of data.


These are the contacts.
I.

number      (seconds)     at=B7
     1          2.3         00 h 13 March 31,1990
(March 30 22 h 13 GMT)=B7
     2          3.4=B7
     3         19.9         00 h 15=B7
     4         27.5         00 h 29=B7
     5          8.0=B7
     6         11.4=B7
     7          9.3=B7
     8        < 0.1=B7
     9         45.9         00 h 39=B7
    10         16.2=B7
    11         11.4=B7
    12          9.5=B7
    13         11.2         00 h 46'


Eliminating contact 9 (the other F16), contacts 3 and 4, lasting
19.9 and 27.5 seconds, are the only ones that could relate to
the erratic contact sequence lasting 22.5 seconds.
Contact 4 - 27 sec. - could include 22.5 seconds of radar lock.

But:

>From the staff report it appears that:

00 h 13: First lock on the target designated by the CRC.
Position: "on the nose" 6 NM (Nautical Miles), 9000 feet,
direction: 250. The target speed changes within minimum time from
150 to 970 knots, altitude coming down from 9000 to 5000 feet,
then up to 11000 feet, and, shortly after, down to ground level.


Contact 3 happened at 00.15 according to the table of concacts.
Though we don't have exact corroberation of the times of contact,
contact 3 would seem the best fit for the erratic contact sequence.

III.

The above contact sequence includes an acceleration from
150 to 560 knots. Which would corroberate with the rounded
numbers the pilot provides in this excerpt, from 100
to 600.

This contact excerpt clearly shows simultaneous radar contact.
It also shows erratic moves that cannot be explained
by any terrestrial aircraft or natural phenomenon.


P=3DPilot
C=3DController
Numbers like 300 and 120 are headings, measured in degrees.

       C       060, 3. You have contact?=B7
           P   One contact but speed is changing from 100 to 600

Although the above maneuvers could not be witnessed
visually from the ground, the Glons radar
had picked up the signal earlier while the gendarmes
were watching the objects in the sky.

Nowhere in the reports is there any mention that the
Glons radar lost contact with the objects. The Glons
radar did direct the F16s to the target. In other words,
the same objects that were seen by the gendarmes were later
detected by F16 radar AND Glons radar and showed the
erractic signal.

In other words, there is no need to dismiss the F16 radar
recordings as evidence.
