Reports:

[Ref. fr1:] MICHEL FIGUET AND JEAN-LOUIS RUCHON:

The two authors indicate that on October 4, 1954 at 11:00 in the morning in Ambés in the Gironde, Mr. Dourthe, baker, claimed to have seen in the sky "a block of the size of a truck of several tons."

The witness had stopped his car to examine the strange phenomenon, which was luminous and transparent, shining like a worm. After having remained motionless, the immense mass went up very quickly and "disappeared in space."

The authors indicate that the case is from their personal archive.
