The 1954 French flap in the Press:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper La Croix du Nord, local issue of Arras and Béthune, Pas-de-Calais, France, page 2, on October 5, 1954.

See the case file.



A flying saucer (!) was seen in Ablain-Saint-Nazaire, on the evening of Sunday October 3, by Mr. Louis Lherbier, General Insurance Agent, rue Marcel Lancino. The latter being in his yard was intrigued by the presence of a small reddish ball seeming to move in the air, in the direction of Villers-au-Bois. He focused his attention on this ball which moved towards Ablain and grew rapidly.

He then called his wife, as well as Mr. Robert Mairesse, employed at the Mines and the latter's wife. The four saw the thing very well, which ultimately took the form of a cooking pot spinning around.

Then, after a few minutes, this strange object rose quickly in the air and disappeared from sight.
