Again near Buchy

Another testimony for the "unidentified craft" file

"In the night from Friday to Saturday around 2 o'clock in the morning, I was going back from Buchy, at the wheel from my 4 CV [ordinary French car], and prepared to engage on the R.N. [National Road] 28, from Neufchatel to Rouen, Mr. R. I... said, when I witenssed the following scene:

"I had exceeded the level crossing by 500 meters approximately when I suddenly saw a gleam, which seemed to station on the right edge of the road, at a hundred meters in front of me. At once, the "thing" took off and flees towards the north, but instead of rising vertically, as usual, the craft seemed to undulate at a few meters of the ground. The gleam, of a greenish white, was regularly intermittent and seemed to precede a dark mass which seemed to progress by jumps at a speed that I estimate about 150 km/hour.

"Arriving at the level where the machine was when I saw it, I do not know what occurs, but I felt like paralysed, and from 90 km per hour, the speed at which I drove, I soon had to go in second gear, without having been aware that I voluntarily slowed down.

"I do not claim to have been subjected to an external influence, but not being accustomed to be impressed by nothing, I cannot explain such an effect of " inhibition "...

This testimony is all the more worthy of faith as it comes from a personality extremely well-known from Rouen, who is not considered to be gullible.
