See the case file here.


A farmer from VOUNEUIL-SUR-VIENNE saw a saucer and touched a "cuirass" (?)

A strange story is told by Yves David, 28, a farmer at Les Breloux, Community of Vouneuil-sur-Vienne.

He is, however, a man worthy of faith. Let him speak:

"On Sunday, September 18, I was returning from a sale in Targé, and I was driving on the road from Cenon to Vouneuil-sur-Vienne to my home.

The headlight of my moped did not function very well. Suddenly, between the Poutereau and the Rabotes, I could see a mass in the middle of the road.

"My surprise was great when I saw a kind of cuirass (like a diver) advancing towards me.

"This cuirass stopped at my height, stroked my arm and emitted some inarticulate sounds, and I did not move.

Then the cuirass retreated, and only a few yards away I saw a machine which I cannot describe.

"A green light appeared which paralyzed me and I was unable to move.

"The craft rose from the ground at the vertical and disappeared without any noise."

some may be surprised that Mr. David did not alert the gendarmerie sooner.

He told us that he had told his adventure to his wife and had asked one of his friends to make a discreet investigation as to whether anyone else had seen the craft.

"I was afraid, if I spoke, to be scoffed," he concluded.
