The 1954 French flap:

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

January 9, 1954, Dijon, Côte-d'Or:

Reference number for this case: 9-Jan-54-Dijon. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


[Ref. jg1:] JIMMY GUIEU:

The author indicates that on January 26, 1954 towards 4:50 a.m. a luminous object, lengthened, orange, followed by a luminous trail and going towards the North-West while projecting a blinding clearness on all the countryside was seen in the Dijon area sky.

The author says that the object moved very low, at less than 1400 meters of altitude, which was the height of the cloudy ceiling this day at 4:45, and it suddenly projected a powerful purple beam which disappeared and made place to an intense luminosity.

The author says that many witnesses were taken of panic as the craft passed at very low altitude, and that others were impressed in spite of their rational minds.


French journalist and pioneer of French ufology Charles Garreau drew the map underneath to plot sightings which all occurred on January 9, 1954, between 06:15 A.M. and 7:50 A.M. in the East of France.

Though no narrative is joined, it is visible on the map that a sighting of some sort occurred on January 9, 1954, at or aproximately at 07:50 A.M., at or near the city of Dijon.

[Ref. lc1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates that in the Côte d'or à Dijon on January 9, 1954, at 07:45 "Observation of a red object towards the north whose trajectory is directed north west south east."

The source is indicated as "Les soucoupes volantes viennent d'un autre monde by Guieu Jimmy ** Fleuve Noir 1954".

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 26 January 1954 at 04:50 in Dijon, France, "One object was observed by 11 witnesses (Guyennot)."
