I took a look at the video and, to me, it doesn't seem very similar.

We I was in the Air Force in 1965, I had an opportunity to see a Vulcan
bomber up close and also a chance to look it over closely while it was
on the ground.  It was a huge airplane.  One of the main landing gear
wheels was as tall as my shoulders (I am 6' tall).  The bomber itself
was about 12' off the ground when parked on the ramp on it's landing
gear.  I remember thinking as I saw it enter the traffic pattern to land
that it must have had very powerfull engines because it looked like a
brick flying around.  It also was one of the loudest airplanes I've ever

While the Vulcan appeared to be huge, its wing span was much less than
that of a B-52 and it was only about 2/3rds the length of a B-52.  I
think it appeared to be so huge because the engines were located in the
wing and, therefore, the wings were very thick as compared to a B-52 or
a similar aircraft.

I don't remember any lights on it that would compare to the lights
reported in the Belgium sighting.  I believe the landing lights were
located on the nose landing gear housing.

I also don't think that the Vulcan bomber could fly very slowly.  Delta
wings don't produce much lift at low speed.  They're designed primarily
for high speed flight.  Also, the engines make so much noise that I
would find it hard to believe that anyone could identifiy it as anything
other than an aircraft.

Besides, the Vulcan bomber has been retired for a long time...
