Black triangle sightings have been reported and observed since the 1930’s the sightings have however become more prominent in recent years. What are these strange crafts and are they terrestrial in origin or indeed extraterrestrial? We take a collective view of some of the most infamous black triangle UFO cases of recent times.
The Cosford incident
The 30th and 31st of March 1993 saw a series of UFO reporting’s of triangular shaped crafts over the United Kingdom’s airspace involving over a 100 independent eye witnesses. Several of these witnesses were police officers and military personnel. The unidentified flying object was sighted over two related Royal air force bases. The initial UFO sighting was recorded in Somerset at 8.30pm and swiftly accompanied by an additional sighting at 9pm in and around the Quantock Hills. The witness to this particular sighting was a police officer who, together with a scout cub group, observed an object in the sky which was described as appearing like “two Concordes flying side by side and joined together”.
A member of the public in Staffordshire also reported a UFO sighting on the 30th March estimated the object as being around 200 metres in diameter. Many of the descriptions of this now infamous event related to triangular shaped craft.
Rendlesham Forest UFO
A triangular shaped craft was seen by USAF personnel in Rendlesham Forest woods in late December 1980. US Military officers and other civilian personnel described approaching the UFO in the dense forest and observing it in vivid detail (see our Rendlesham Forest UFO Series).
Belgium Air force UFO Pursuit
March the 30th 1990 saw members of the Belgium public observing a large black triangular object navigating without a sound over the Belgium city for over 5 minutes. Some of the witnesses were local police officers who observed the object hovering over and around a block of flats and recorded that the object omitted a ‘red glowing disk of light from its centre which flew down to the ground and darted around several buildings before disappearing’. The Belgian Air Force scrambled several F-16 fighter jets to pursue the craft given it was observed upon the ground radar systems. The pursuing pilots and the observing radar personnel described the objects moving at incredible speeds (one F-16 pilot recorded the UFO’s speed at over 900 knots) with immense maneuverability.
Phoenix Lights UFO’s
On several evenings starting on the 13th March 1997 residents of Phoenix Arizona observed a significant number of UFO’s which included several Black Triangular shaped craft. Eye witnesses recall the incredible size of the objects some of which descended to a low altitude of around 900-1000 feet. Witnesses describe the lack of any notable noise being emitted from the objects. Also of note was the admission by some witnesses that they also observed military jets presumably from the local Luke Air Force Base, attempting to intercept the UFO’s.
To offer some coherent explanations of these strange UFO craft is not easy in these individual cases however, it would be sensible to consider the secretive experimental military crafts such as the Northrop Grumman B2 Spirit aircraft often referred to as the Stealth Bomber, which has a design very similar in nature to some of the cases above (triangular shaped craft). In addition, the Lockheed F-117 stealth Nighthawk jet also has similar design characteristics and both of these crafts were operating during the time frames of all the above sightings.
The triangular shape of these military craft would for some part, provide explanations around the high proportion of Black Triangle UFO sightings however, it is noted that in the vast majority of sightings the observers noted the absence of any notable sounds emanating from the craft(s). Given even the advanced military technology of these aircraft, they would still be producing some audible sounds akin to jet propulsion engines which for the majority of sightings is not identified.
In summary, it is more than possible that there are some highly secret, earthly, black triangles gracing our skies.
However, there is a good argument that a proportion of these crafts posses many advanced characteristics in terms of speed and manoeuvrability which even by our current knowledge, would seem to surpass our technological threshold.
It is safe to conclude that as yet, no explanations have been provided to the general public of what these objects in our skies are and a there is a continually growing body of evidence, which eludes a rational explanation.
