The 1954 French flap:

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

January, 1954, West of Ouessant, Finistère:

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


In the years 2000, the ufology magazine Lumières Dans La Nuit introduced in the ufological field an event that would have been reported in the newspaper "Les Informations Dieppoises" for January 21, 1954:

The British cargo ship Pelsdale, 160 km west of Ouessant, at 46°55 North and 06°30 West, allegedly radioed that an airplane had crashed into the sea while emitting a lot of smoke. No aircraft was reported missing.


[Ref. jm1:] JOEL MESNARD:

L'auteur indique qu'en janvier 1954, à 160 km à l'ouest d'Ouessant, à 46°55 Nord et 06°30 Ouest, le cargo britannique Pelsdale a signalé par radio qu'un avion s'était abîmé en met en émettant beacoup de fumée, mais aucun avion n'avait disparu.

Les sources sont indiquées comme "Informations Dieppoises", 21 janvier 1954; LDLN 372, p. 9.


Not looked for yet. The fact that no plane was missing does not eliminate the possibility of the January 9, 1954, meteor in that area.
