The 1954 French flap in the Press:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper La Croix, Paris, France, page 6, on October 10, 1954.


Saucers, cigars, etc.

- Mr. René Hott, 35, from Jettingen (Haut-Rhin), an S.N.C.F. employee, claimed to have seen in a field, while going to work, a semi-spherical aluminum-colored dome, illuminated inside, which was about three meters from the road.

Frightened, Mr. Ott fled. However, he had time to notice that a door opened in the apparatus. It moved above him for a distance of 800 meters, before disappearing.

- Mr. Alexandre Tremblais, milk collector, said the truck he was driving suddenly stopped for an unknown reason at 6:20 a.m. on Friday on a small departmental road near Saint-Jean-d'Asse (Sarthe), that its headlights went off. Coming down from his cabin, he saw a luminous red and blue flying cigar pass above him. The craft disappeared on the horizon a few minutes later. The truck's engine then started to run again and the headlights came back on.

- Mr. François Cariou, itinerant fish merchant in Plozévet (Finistère), his wife and two daughters saw a bright light in the sky which appeared to be surrounded by dense smoke. This glow, at first motionless, moved towards them, at an altitude of about 10 meters. It looked like an orange sphere.

Frightened, the Cariou family returned into the house. Several fishermen who were preparing to go to sea at the same hour confirmed these statements.
