Black Triangles and UFOs, Part One

An examination of the origins of the mysterious UFO’s known as Black Triangles.

Most UFO’s are reported to be the classic inverted saucer shape, but many other reports have seen them in much stranger configurations. One predominately UFO that has sparked a lot of attention since 1980 is the Black Triangles. Similar in appearance UFO’s of this kind have been reported since the 1940’s.

Kenneth A. Arnold’s sighting was the most publicly and earliest recognized “flying saucers” case well before the modern phenomena known as UFOs got started. Kenneth A. Arnold (March 29, 1915 – January 16, 1984) was an American businessman and pilot. On June 24, 1947, Kenneth Arnold was flying at an altitude of 9,500 feet in the Yakima, Washington area when he spotted a gleam in the sky and he suddenly noticed nine crescent-shape UFO’s flying in formation.

The mysterious high-speed objects were traveling more than 1,500 miles an hour. Arnold at first thought these were military jets, but they were so strange looking, and they soon disappeared at a high rate of speed. The encountered left him feeling eerie and a bit shaken. After telling some pilot friends about what he saw, Arnold went to the FBI but found the office closed, and than he reported the story to the newspaper office. The reporter omitted the actual shape of the UFO’s and used instead what Arnold describe as “they flew like a saucer would if you skipped it across the water.” Thus was born the phrase: Flying saucer. Secret Projects: Flying Saucer Aircraft

This is the clue to discovering the origins of the crescent-shape UFO’s and triangles seen now presently worldwide. Another report of this kind was witnessed by military personnel in September 1952 during NATO maneuvers near Denmark & Norway. The Danish destroyer Willemoes, participating in military exercises, encountered a UFO during the night. The Commanding officer and several members of the crew were eyewitness to a triangle shape UFO. The unidentified object exhibited an unusual blue glow and quickly fled the scene at a high rate of speed.

This was just the start of many UFO reports coming from this massive NATO exercises in September 1952. Known as "Operation Mainbrace” several NATO ships and military personnel reported throughout the entire maneuvers of eyewitnessing a succession of UFO’s. Most reports were of circular shaped UFO’s and seen constantly in the vicinity of the NATO armada.

The main question and major concern back in the 1940’s and 1950’s, was who could be operating these unidentified flying objects? The US Military Intelligence knew of Nazi Germany’s successes with early jet aircraft and their attempt to design saucer-shape craft. Confiscated Nazi documents substantiated that fact but the German war machine was destroyed and the Allied Forces had won the war. But documents did state that Germany also had a swept-wing prototype that looked oddly enough like Kenneth A. Arnold’s sighting back 1947 in America. Top Secret Bird: The Luftwaffe's Me-163 Comet

The Nazi swept-wing Me-163 was powered by a liquid-fuel rocket engine and had a extraordinary rate of climb and if used could have changed the outcome of the war. But in the final months of World War II, American troops discovered a top-secret facility in Germany with a prototype of an advanced batwing-shaped jet fighter. Known today as Hitler’s Stealth Fighter was Nazi Germany’s top-secret newly developed radar-evading technological wonder of it’s time.

The first was the Horten H9V1 swept-wing glider was a precursor of a 600 mph jet fighter. The next design was the Horten 229 flying wing fighter/bomber would have been the most lethal fighter craft in the air, nearly undetectable to Allied radar, and meant to be intercontinental. The Horton 229 was generations ahead of it’s time and would have been the world’s first stealth fighter. Horten Ho 229 Spirit of Thuringia: The Horten All-Wing Jet Fighter

The American military and Russian military were very interested in these advances with flying wing air crafts and saucer shape technology as far back as the late 1940‘s. The term “arrowhead” UFO’s started appearing in the 1960’s with reports of flying Black Triangles being sighted. This would continued intermediately over the next ten years before a new wave of Black Triangles started appearing in the 1980’s.
