A "Flying Cylinder" surrounded by saucers above Gaillac
Albi. -- Big amazement in Gaillac, in the Tarn. The inhabitants of this city
knowned for its vines, saw Monday aat 5 p.m., evolving in a blue sky without
cloud, the strange objects absolutely comparable to those noticed
last week in Oloron.
Alarm was given by Mrs. Dore, aged 64, residing road of Toulouse, in Gaillac.
She was intrigued when she heard her hens quack in a strange way in the hen house.
Thinking that some buzzard was circling above her farmyard and caused this fright,
she looked up instinctively and discovered the phenomenon.
Her son tried to distinguish the objects, while Mr. Corbières and his wife ran by,
and later, Mr. Corbières father, aged 63, neighbors of the Dore family. These people
claim that they were probably flying saucers which passed on Gaillac in the
direction from south to east. They whirled slowly, grouped by two, and scintillated
in the sun. There were first of four of them, then a dozen.
In the middle of the saucers a kind of long flying cylinder appeared, whitish,
which let escape a white plume of smoke. At the end of some twenty minutes,
the phenomenon disappeared, while white wires resembling glass wool fell
on the ground. Two hours after, many filaments of this matter were still
hanging on electric wire and the branches of trees, but they
became gelatinous and melted.
Again a flying saucer
Auckland (A.P.). -- A "flying saucer" has been seen, yesterday
morning, above Nedin, in the suburb of Auckland in New Zealand, by Mr.
J.-P. Burke, aviator pilot for eight years.
Mr. Burke states to be awaked by a metallic noise rather similar to that which a
jet plane does. Going to the window at once, he saw within approximately 1.800 meters
an object which resembled a gigantic cymbal, about the size of a Dakota [DC-3 plane],
which was surrounded by a blue gray gleam.
Mr. Burke estimates that the speed of this "saucer" was between 400 and 450 kilometers per hour.
