August 16, 1953/1954, Tours, Indre-et-Loire:

Reference number for this case: 16-Aug-54-Tours. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Reports:

[Ref. jv1] JACQUES VALLEE:

Jacques Vallée indicates as case 115 that on August 16, 1953, at 08:30 p.m. in Tours, France, Claude Pasquier saw two disks flying very low, quite slowly, along a straight course, with a "hard" sound.

The source is indicated as "Anatomy 65, 141".

[Ref. fr1] MICHEL FIGUET ET JEAN-LOUIS RUCHON:

The authors indicate that on August 16, 1953, at 08:30 p.m. in Tours, France, Claude Pasquier saw two disks flying very low, quite slowly, along a straight course, with a "hard" sound.

The source is indicated as "Vallée Catalogue, case #115."

[Ref. lc1] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that in Tours in the Indre et Loire on August 16, 1954 at 08.30 p.m. "M Pasquier sees two discs flying very low and very slowly, following a straight course, with a 'hard' noise."

The source is indicated as "Ovni, Premier dossier complet... by Figuet M./ Ruchon J.L. ** Alain Lefeuvre pub. 1979".

Explanations:

Not looked for yet.

In addition to the fact that the craft seen at night at an unknown distance and noisy could have been planes or helicopters, not very frequent at that time, it seems the case is of 1953, that Figuet and Ruchon mistyped the year.
