Official, France:

In France, there is still no equivalent of the Freedom of Information Acts (FOIA) as it is now applied to some official UFO information in the majority of other countries, USA, United Kingdom, Spain, Italy etc. In France, and only in theory, information is supposedly possibly accessible 60 years after its date. (Thus 2014 for UFO cases of 1954 etc). It is only if you are "Somebody of Importance" such as TV journalist Jean-Claude Bourret in the 70's, or if you have "Friends Inside", or if you beg enough, that you can maybe pick up some documents.

Witness report to the Gendarmerie, case of St. Tudec, June 9, 1975:

This document was reproduced in the ufological publicly litterature long ago.

Statement by M. A. [...], [aged around forty], farmer, resident of Saint-Tudec (the Finistere).

In clear weather, on Monday June 9, 1975, I saw, at about 11:45 p.m., a UFO. At this time , I was returnong from work, at the moment of a cartage of hay by a neighbor's, Mr. [...]. I was alone when I drove on my tractor, at approximately 300 m of my home, when I saw, in a field belongin to Mr. [...], resident of Saint-Tudec, located on the left of the chappel in the Poullaouen-Kerstephan direction at 100 m in the north of Miss P. [...]'s house, something luminous.

I saw, while passing on the way, posed quite motionless, a luminous ball of approximately 0,60 meters. This ball was of a very bright yellow, a little like a car's headlight, but much more bright, but anyhow not dazzling.

At the beginning, I believed that it was a tractor in the field, but I nevertheless found that a little odd. I thus continued on my way to my residence and I parked my tractor under the hangar. Then, I went back by foot, at 50 meters of my home, from where, on a hillock, I still saw this luminous ball. As of this moment, I saw very well that it was not a tractor, but of a very odd machine.

I started to look at this thing during approximately 5 minutes. At the end of this time, seeing this ball starting to lift off the ground slightly, I went back on the pathway. I went to awake my wife to tell her that there was something strange. My wife rose and both, we went again to the place which I had occupied before, at approximately 250 m of this machine.

When we arrived, my wife and I, at the place to observe this ball, it had risen at one meter above the ground and it went up rather gently. Its shape was still the same, but it was of a duller yellow colour.

While moving away in direction from Scrignac, that is towards the north, while a little towards the west, it reached a height which I evaluate between 70 and 100 m, and without acceleration, it moved away rather slowly. Both, we remained to look at this machine during approximately 5 minutes, and when we went back inside, we still saw it.

Although my wife went back to bed, I went outside alone again to see whether I saw something. I indeed saw this same yellow ball, quite far, just above Scrignac, according to my idea. It moved away slowly, but without taking altitude. I was at the end of my cattle shed while I looked at it, and hardly a minute had run out, that I received two purple reflections in the eyes, which hurt me so much that I saw nothing any more but black whereas the weather was clear.

Thus, not seeing anything anymore, I returned immediately at home to lay down after having explained to my wife the story of the two purple reflections. I thought that these two reflections were intended at me, and I was even quite afraid. Actually I was very impressed by these purple reflections which hurt my eyes. I did not hear any noise at all in the presence of this machine. I did not see any human shape nor inside neither outside this ball.
