1954, Pau, Pyrénées-Atlantiques:

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


[Ref. dk1:] DONALD KEYHOE:

In 1954, a French test pilot for the Fouga Aircraft Company saw a circular machine over the city of Pau. As he climbed toward it a heat blast hit him. On the verge of passing out he dived into cooler air. The UFO made no attempt to follow him down.

[Ref. mc1:] MARK CASHMAN:



A test pilot for the Fouga Aircraft Company of Pau, in the Lower Pyrenees tried to approach a UFO which was hovering near the city. He was forced to turn his aircraft away because of the intense heat which built up in the cockpit.
