a flying saucer

Marseille, 14 (A.C.P.). - In the Vaucluse sky, two jet planes chased a flying saucer.

Around 2 p.m., in Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, yesterday afternoon, two children pointed out in the sky a white disc surmounted by a spherical cap. This craft that part of the population could see for a long time launched two powerful fires varying from white to purple.

Alerted, the Caritat air base scrambled two jets. Shortly after the airmen announced by radio: "We spotted the craft which escaped at a speed greater than that of our aircraft."

The vision of the craft lasted nearly ten minutes above Fontaine-de-Vaucluse.
