[Ref. rdr1:] MAGAZINE "RADAR":


Weekly magazine "Radar", at the time of the 1954 French saucer flap, started a first contest offering a million old francs to whoever would deliver a Martian to them. The magazine then launched a similar contest to reward any authentic photograph of a flying saucer:

On February 14, 1965, the ORTF showed a television documentary about the flying saucers, during which fragments of the Radar article appeared. I have neither the entire radar article nor his date of publication.

The image shown in [rdr1] appeared in this magazine among others, as one of the photographs which was sent to them and which the magazine "definitely rejected", and the image is said to have been taken in Alès.


Not looked for yet. Hoax.
