October 9, 1954, Nice, Alpes-Maritimes:

Reference number for this case: 9-Oct-54-Nice-2. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.



The two authors and ufologists indicate that in Nice in the departement of Alpes-Maritime, on October 9, 1954 at 11:15 p.m., Mr. Valicale, a police inspector of the Nice mobile squad, observed a luminous machine moving towards the south at high speed.

The authors indicate that the sources are "La Montagne" in October 1954 and their personal file.


The Belgian ufologist indicates in her catalogue that in 1954, on October 9 in France in St Chamas and Nice, "at 20:15 one observes in St Chamas a disc letting out a very thick smoke of fire color, which disappears suddenly by taking altitude above Nice. At 23:15 Mr. Valicale observes in Nice a luminous craft moving at high speed towards the south. Mr. Soulié observes a disc resembling the full moon and leaving a luminous trail."

The source is indicated as "M. FIGUET/ J.L. RUCHON: "Ovni, Premier dossier complet..." Alain Lefeuvre pub. 1979, p. 140".
