Belgium UFO flap photo fake?

Last week I introduced you dear readers to a thread over at AboveTopSecret that was started by one of the best posters at the site (See here for that post). Well today I'm back to introduce you to yet another fascinating thread started by IsaacKoi. Earlier today Isaac posted this at ATS "Breaking News on Belgian TV: Famous flying triangle picture is a fake confesses hoaxer".
According to the original news posting when translated through Google, because the original article is in French apparently, the man who created this photo (see below) has now admitted that it is in fact a fake.
Famed photo from the Belgian UFO wave of the late 80's early 90's
From the original article (which can be found here) we get this:

The mystery of the famous UFO 90 years elucidated: "A hoax"
The photo had been around the world and was analyzed by the most eminent specialists. None had solved the mystery of the UFO and Breakfast Rechain became the emblem of the Belgian UFO wave of the 90s. Eighteen years later, the author unveils the cliché.

The end of 1989 and the 90's were marked by a mysterious UFO flap in Belgium. Appearances never understood. Emblem of the phenomenon: a picture of a triangular UFO with three lights, one in each corner, taken April 4, 1990 in Petit Rechain, near Verviers, by a Patrick, a young turner-fitter of 20 years. The slide will travel around the world, will be discussed by leading experts and up to the Belgian Royal Military Academy. 

Head over to AboveTopSecret to join into the conversation that is ongoing at the site. Also what do you all think? Does this change your position, if you had one of course, on the Belgium UFO wave? As has been pointed out on the thread, even if this photo has been faked (which to the best of my knowledge hasn't been proven just yet) it doesn't change the number of sightings by both the military and civilians.

The Belgium UFO scare was primarily US Aircraft being tested.

I have heard this view before and it makes sense to a point. The main concern I have with it though, is why would the military risk flying the craft over another country where it could ostensibly crash and be recovered? It seems that many believe triangular craft sightings are military in nature, but I'm not 100% convinced yet. Either way thanks for your reply!

I agree that even if this photo is a fake one, it doesn't change the fact that something unusual was flying over Belgium for months back then, witnessed by thousands of people - civilians, as well as military and police.

If, as Mr. X says, the Belgium Triangle was a U.S. aircraft, then one of the secret craft of the Air Force was witnessed by hundreds of people in Belgium. We now know that the Air Force has- if it truly was a secret craft being tested- aircraft displaying flight characteristics outside the range normally associated with conventional aircraft. In effect, it had ufo characteristics. This means a percentage of ufo sightings would be of U.S. origin. Does the U.S. military, by denying ufo's are real, suppose citizens will of necessity believe the extraterrestrial hypothesis, when in fact the strange craft are made here on Earth? Having secret ufo technology would be of enormous value for information gathering to the military, since ufo's are considered no threat to national security. Nevertheless, beings from other planets have visited Earth and probably their technology has been incorporated into these secret,highly unusual craft being seen around the world.

It always serve a government to tell "they possess that kind of technology" even if it's a lie.
