UFOs in the daily Press:

French flying saucers in 1954:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper L'Est Républicain, France, on September 22, 1954.


There would have been more than one "saucer" in the sky of the Moselle

BOUZONVILLE (from our correspondent). -- In daytime yesterday, the gendarmerie of Bouzonville (the [M]oselle) was busy seeking possible witnesses of the passage of the flying saucer which would have landed Sunday evening on the heights of Tromborn.

Mr. René Paul, electrician-mechanic, residing on the road of Vandreching, in Bouzonville, talked, he too, to a comrade, [b]ut his confidence having quickly become an open secret, we managed to interview him. Mr. Paul states that what he saw, resembling a flying neon tube at a rather appreciable altitude, had passed in the sky of the Moselle in the evening of Saturday.

This fact would also have been observed by one of his comrades of work, originating from Tromborn, who is not so precise as he is.

With regard to Mr. Louis Moll, gate-keeper, who saw the saucer of Sunday evening, he maintained yesterday his statements and, in spite of the considerable number of his narrations, he always gives the same precise details.

It now rests with the police force to confront the statements of the witness of Teterchen with those of Mr. Moll.
