A photo of a triangular shaped unidentified flying object, said to be hovering the Belgian sky, was photographed last April 14, 1990. This sighting became a worldwide hit as the photo circulated around the world. In fact, it was very controversial that it caught the attention of the experts from NASA. It was known as Petit-Rechain photo, named after the Belgian town where the image was photographed. Now, after almost 21 years, the “real” story finally came out as the man behind this mysterious image finally confessed. Patrick, who was 18 years old back then, admitted in an interview that the object was fake and that they made it using foamed polystyrene, popularly known as Styrofoam.
The object was made, photographed and released during the period when reports about UFO sightings were spreading uncontrollably in the country. These series of sightings were later on coined as Belgian UFO Wave, which lasted from November 1989 to April 1990.
In an interview conducted by one of the broadcasters of a TV channel in Belgium, the RTL TVI, Patrick said that he and his friends made the model with polystyrene, painted it, stuck things to it, suspended it in the air and took a photo. He also admitted that the prank was initially meant to fool some of his co-workers and did not expect that people will take it seriously.
Patrick anticipated that experts would eventually discover their deception but takes pride in the fact that they never did. He apologized to all those who believed but admitted that he wouldn’t hesitate to do it again.
But some people are wondering, “Why now? Why wait 21 years to finally come clean?” Despite Patrick’s confession, many still believed that this might be just another ploy from the government. A cover up designed to sidetrack us from what really is going on. What if the REAL hoax is Patrick claiming to the public that the image is fake? What if the government persuaded the man to tell us a DIFFERENT story to conceal the shocking reality?
