Two young boys of the class of Mr. Chataigne, principal of the Vierzon-Bourgneuf school, claim to have seen flying saucers and made a complete description to their teacher. First of all, the young Alain Baumgarten saw, Thursday towards 10:30 a.m., with some comrades of his class, a machine evolving in the sky. Finally, Friday evening at 19:00 p.m., it is the young Jean Rousseau who, in the garden of his parents, saw a luminous machine, which, after having made a turn on itself rose at high speed.
