Hi, List

Re: Flying triangle video

I received the following message a couple days ago regarding
this video:


Dear Mr. Sawyer,

You wrote about this:

"I cry fake!"

Right you are!

But the true story is even funnier than anyone may think. To
make it short, it's how it goes:

One morning, one belgian media tycoon named F. Istasse working
at the RTBF (Radio Television Belge Francophone - French
speaking belgian Television) woke up with a fun idea: "Why not
make a 26 minutes reportage about the so-called "1989 Belgian
UFO wave 18 years later by those who lived it"?

So said, so done. This man contacted me to ask to be present on
stage for some incredible stories.

My answer was punctilious:

"Fine, provided I will come with a red nose and a wizard hat on
the head, all this for a fee, payable in cash beforehand like in
a brothel."

When he speculated he hoped that fee wouldn't be as high as S.
Spielberg's, my answer was:

"Oh no, just the half of it would be OK".

This put an abrupt end to our negotations.

Meanwhile, the big media communicator asked for in-the-field
reconstitutions of some of the most spectacular observations
including marshalls.

Another of his fun ideas was to ask one of those lighter-than-
air machine geniuses to come from Salt Lake City with one of
his kites and make a tour above the witnesses during the stage
reconstitution to see what they reactions would be.

This is what was presumably recorded in the video sequence you are
speaking about.

As the story goes, the flying wonder was taken away by a violent
outburst of wind and crashed some 1 hundred miles farther than
the site were the TV crew was.

If its pilot was hurt, killed or merely severely injured is

I renounce to make this message publicized on UFO UpDates
seening my many difficulties to have my (rare) contributions to
the very complicated ruling recommendations by its moderator, a
Mr. Knapp or something.

But feel free to dissimenate it as you see fit.

I'm in the "UFO serious business circus" since 1952.

You will find my UFO creditentials on google.be by typing
"Franck Boitte" and my 'UFO CV' at www.rr0.org


F. Boitte


So, if I understand Mr. Boitte's "franglais" correctly, he's
positing that the "vehicle" seen in the video is an ultralight
or "kite" of some kind, piloted by a person who, "as the story
goes," also got caught in some "violent outburst of wind and
crashed" perhaps one hundred miles away from where he was to
"make a tour above the witnesses during the stage reconstitution
to see what they reactions would be."

This reference to a story about a piloted ultralight getting
caught up in an outburst of wind and crashing so far away sounds
rather bizarre and unlikely, but I thought I should pass
Boitte's comments along regardless, so that those interested can
decide for themselves how pertinent his comments may be.

I should say that, based on the videos (of which there are two
on the site created by "dacerealkiller"), if the vehicle was
swept away by wind, then what is the "object" shown in the two
videos concerned? Rather contradictory, to say the least. Caveat

I also Googled the name "Franck Boitte" and rr0, and found the
following, which has also been somewhat mangled by Google's
machine translation software:


this might be the "CV" Boitte notes.

So, with that, make of this what you will about Boitte's
comments - I just thought the info should be passed along for
the record.
