In the Amiens region:

A mason and a worker saw
a flying saucer in a field

But no trace was found
on the ground

A mason, Mr. Emile Renard, 27, and his worker, Mr. Yves de Guillaboz, 23, claim to have seen on September 8, in a field, about 200 meters from the road, near Acheux-en-Amiénois, a craft resembling a truncated haystack on which would have been placed a kind of large inverted plate.

The two men, who were riding their bikes, stated that they then jumped from their machines and ran towards the craft which, they say, was gray in color and approximately ten meters in diameter. It swung slightly and on the wall, there was a sort of closed door.

There was no sound from the craft.

Still according to the account of MM. Renard and Guillaboz, the craft flew away when they had already traveled fifty meters. A smoke escaped from a kind of pipe placed at its bottom. after an oblique flight of fifteen meters, the craft took the vertical.
