The 1954 French flap:

October 12 or 13, 1954, Cortevaix, Saône-et-Loire:

Reference number for this case: 1213-Oct-54-Cortevaix. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

In the revised 1966 version of his book "Mystérieux Objets Célestes" of 1958, Aimé Michel reported without any detail nor source a sighting that would be part of an "alignment" of sightings, at Cortevaix, on October 13, 1954.

It seems that Jacques Vallée gave the date of a Cortevaix sighting as October 12, 1954 and the hour as 06:30 p.m.

A US website citing Vallée tells: "An unidentified object was sighted, but with appearance and behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation. One object was observed by one witness."

Reports:

[Ref. am3:] AIME MICHEL:

[...] the line joining two other observations of that day [October 13, 1954]: Cortevaix, 70 kilometers to the northwest, and Romans, 10 kilometers south-south-east. This is the only alignment that can be seen that day.

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

12 Oct 1954 - Cortevaix, Bourgogne, France

12 October 1954 18:30

Cortevaix, Bourgogne, France

An unidentified object was sighted, but with appearance and behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation. One object was observed by one witness.
