The 1954 French flap:

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

October 1, 1954, Bélesta, Ariège:

Reference number for this case: 1-Oct-54-Bélesta. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

One can find within two ufological catalogs on the web in the years 2010 that there was apparently an observation in Bélesta the 1st of October 1954 at 05:00 p.m.

One of the catalogs, referring to a computer catalog by Jacques Vallée, indicates that an unidentified flying object was seen, but that could very probably have a conventional explanation according to its aspect and its behaviour.

Reports:

[Ref. ud1:] SITE WEB "UFODNA":

This website indicates that on 1 October 1954 at 17:00 in Belesta, Puivert, 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."

The source is indicated as "Vallee, Jacques Computerized Catalog (N = 3073)".

[Ref. ub1:] "UFO-DATENBANK":

This catalogue recorded a duplicate for this case:

Explanations:

Totally insufficient information, no reported strangeness.

Is it possible that this could have inspired the authors of the hoax in Bélesta 16 days later?
