The 1954 French flap:

The index page for the 1954 French flap section of this website is here.

October 11, 1954, Montbazin, Hérault:

Reference number for this case: 11-Oct-54-Montbazin. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


[Ref. am1:] AIME MICHEL:

Aimé Michel indicates that there was a case of landing on October 11, 1954, in Montbazin in the Hérault, reported in the newspapers Le Figaro, l'Aurore, le Parisien Libéré for October 13, 1954, and Sud-Ouest and Ouest-France for October 14, 1954.

Aimé Michel specifies that the case has nothing to do with the one in Montbazens in the Aveyron.

He put the sighting location on a map supposed to demonstrate cases are lined up:

The two authors indicate that in Montbazin in the Hérault on October 11, 1954, a luminous disc of 5 meters in diameter with light outputs was observed on the ground. A being was also observed. They specify that the case is not the same as the hoax case in Montbazen, the Aveyron, reported the same day.

The authors indicate that the sources are "Quincy" and Charles Bowen in "En Quête des Humanoïdes", J'ai Lu publisher.

[Ref. mf1:] MICHEL FIGUET:

In an extract of his Francat catalogue, Michel Figuet noted that the case of October 11, 1954 in Montbazin in the Hérault would be actually the hoax of Montbazens in the Aveyron that same day.

[Ref. lh1:] LARRY HATCH:

This ufologist indicates that on October 11, 1954, a luminous disc of a diameter estimated at five meters is reported on the ground, on the commune of Montbazin.

[Ref. lc1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Not looked for yet. Very possibly confusion with the Montbazens hoax by Quincy.
