Subject: Belgian UFOs and Other military 'Tests'

The whole problem with military testing "theories" explaining
UFOs in Belgium, Mexico City, or Phoenix, is that when you want
to keep a test secret, you don't due it in front of millions of
potential witnesses.

I spent 9 1/2 years in the army, and even unclassified tests are
held on military bases so that the testing can be controlled. If
something goes wrong, the public won't generally know about it.

At Ft Sill Oklahoma the army was testing a new experimental RPV
(Remote Piloted Vehicle) named Aquila. During one test the RPV
disappeared. Two days or so later it was found in "farmer
Brown's" pasture (Lawton OK or FT Sill post newspaper
April-December 1986 time frame as a source).

Tests go wrong and when they do in full sight of the public, it
causes embarassment. Could you imagine the political and military
fallout of something like this (LoFlyte, Aurora,etc) crashing
into someone's backyard? Also, europe, Mexico City, and Phoenix
are densely populated areas which increases the chance of being
seen to unacceptable levels if it is supposed to be a secret.
There are plenty of wide open government owned spaces in the
American west (I know because I live there) to operate in
complete secrecy.
