UFOs in the daily Press:

Flying saucers in the 1954 press:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Le Démocrate, of Délémont, Switzerland, on August 28, 1954.

The flying saucer of the Norwegian women was a helicopter!

(Sp.). OSLO, the 28th. -- As we already told, two Norwegian women who gathered bilberries close to Mosjeen, 300 km in the north of Trondheim, encountered - at least claimed they encountered - the pilot of a flying saucer. The latter, they said, appeared gentle, spoke an incomprehensible language and wore a kaki outfit. As for his craft, it resembled an assembly of giant pans lids.

The two Norwegians said that the man, not having been able to make himself understood, went up in his machine and set out again, towards some unspecified planet Mars.

In fact, he was returning to Oslo, where it put, yesterday, and end to the story. It was actually the American pilot Baily Furot, who takes part of a group of aviators lent with their helicopters to Norway by the USA Air Force, to accomplish various transport in the north of the country. Baily Furot, who seemed delighted by this adventure, said: "By seeing the face these two people made in front of my helicopter, I had believed I landed on the Moon."
