The 1954 French flap:

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

September 27 or 28, 1954, Montpellier, Hérault:

Reference number for this case: 27-Sep-54-Montpellier. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In his 1958 book on the French wave of 1954, the pioneering ufologist Aimé Michel indicated that there was an observation in Montpellier on September 27, 1954. However, he was only interested in observations of that day that were part of what he thought to be aligned observations, and unfortunately he gave no details on this one as he considered it was not part of an alignment.

Other sources mention without more detail an observation in Montpellier but on September 28, 1954, one of the sources indicating that according to the computerized catalog of Jacques Vallée, the observation showed no strangeness.


[Ref. aml1:] AIME MICHEL:

Aimé Michel indicates that there was an observation in Montpellier on September 27, 1954. However he is interested only in observations of this day which form part of what he thinks of being alignments and unfortunately does not give any details on this observation as he considers it is not part of an alignment.

[Ref. tgn1:] THIERRY GAULIN:

[Ref. uda1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 28 September 1954, in France, in Montpellier, "An unidentified object was sighted, but with appearance and behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation. One object was observed."
