The 1954 French flap:

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

November 4, 1954, Longeault, Côte-d'Or:

Reference number for this case: 4-Nov-54-Longeault. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

In 1982, the ufology group ADRUP, in Dijon, published a catalog of all flying saucer sighting reports published in the daily newspaper Le Bien Public of Dijon.

An article dated November 9, 1954, of this journal is reproduced, indicating that one of their readers, Miss Bartet, a well-known painter, resident member of the Academy of Sciences, Arts and Literature of Dijon, observed on Thursday, November 4, 1954 at 7:28 a.m. in Longeault a luminous celestial phenomenon.

She sketched the phenomenon:

The phenomenon was moving from east to west at about 800 meters, the newspaper said.

WHY 1954?

The French flap of 1954 is today more than controversial.

Thus, A.R.R.U.P. wanted to make a compilation of all the documents published in a Burgundy daily newspaper:

"Le Bien Public".

The interest of this catalogue is triple:

  • A- to get back in the mood of that too famous year -
  • B- recall all the testimonies that appeared in the local press, whether they are good or bad. -
  • C- to be used as references for potential researchers of sociological or UFO character.
