Reference number for this case: 22-Feb-54-Fuveau. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

Sci-fi writer and pioneering ufologist Jimmy Guieu had reported the observation by his mother of a spindle-shaped machine over Aix-en-Provence on February 22, 1954 around 7 p.m. Guieu explained that he then made a radio call for additional witnesses without giving the exact hour, and received concordant testimonies from the area.

He indicates that in Fuveau, 13 km in straight line from Aix-en-Provence, that same February 22, 1954, at 07:01 p.m., a cigar-shaped object had been observed in the sky. It had stopped over the city, then resumed its slow and silent flight.

Reports:

[Ref. jgu1:] JIMMY GUIEU:

Science fiction writer and ufology pioneer Jimmy Guieu indicates that in Fuveau, in the Rhone delta, on February 22, 1954 at 07:01 p.m., an object in the shape of a cigar was observed in the sky. It was motionless above the city, then took again its slow and silent flight.

[Ref. lcn1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that in the Bouches du Rhône in Fuveau on February 22, 1954 at 19:01 hours, "a cigar is observed. It immobilizes himself above the city. It then resumes its slow and silent flight."

The source is indicated as "Black-out sur les Soucoupes volantes par Guieu Jimmy ** Fleuve Noir 1956 omnium 1977".

[Ref. uda1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 22 February 1954 around 1900 in Aix, Fuveau, France, "An unidentified object was sighted, but with appearance and behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation. One object was observed by several female witnesses (Guieu)."

The source is indicated as "Guieu, Jimmy, Flying Saucers Come from Another World, Citadel, New York, 1956".

Explanations:

See the case at Aix-en-Provence the same day at the same time and with the same source, but more detailed, and why it could have been a helicopter.

In the case of Fuveau, a silent movement is indicated, but we do not know the observation distance and we do not know the volume of the ambient sounds.
