Reference number for this case: End-Sep-54-Albias. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

Ufologist Alain Gamard apparently noted that in the end of September 1954, about midnight, in Albias in the Tarn-and-Garonne, Jean Dumons was driving by car when his headlights suddenly died out.

He then saw in a nearby meadow a round and high apparatus of a wingspan of 2.50 to 3 meters posed on a gear, and noticed three beings in its vicinity.

He observed that during two minutes, then the object took off vertically, took a horizontal trajectory and was quickly out of sight.
