On August 12, 1996, Belgian radio announced in their news bulletins that it was possible if not likely that the UFO wave of some years ago was not a "UFO" but a secret airplane.
The bulletins were inspired by reports of some Belgian Ufologists, who have identified the UFO as the Wave Rider, a plane from the LoFlyte-project of the USAF. Last week, the USAF showed the prototype of LoFlyte (Low Observable Light Test Experiment), a prototype designed with the help of NASA and, according to some, suspiciously similar to what was seen over Belgium in 1990.
The plane can reach speeds of up to 5631 km/hour. When the Belgian Airforce sent out F-16s in order to catch a glimpse of the UFO, their radar showed it could fly up to 3000 km/h, therefore well within the capabilities of the new plane.
The WaveRider gets its name from its apparent ability to "surf" on the air. Reports show that at the end of the 1970s, tests with similar planes were already underway.
On August 13, Belgian newspapers reported on the story. TV has so far not picked up on it. It is likely that Belgian Ufologists will closely look into this new development and report on it further.
