The 1954 French flap in the Press:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Liberté, Nord, France, page 5, on October 20, 1954.

See the case file.




Mr. Maurice Ramette, 24, living in Naves, near Cambrai, also saw his saucer on Sunday evening around 7 p.m.

At this time, accompanied by Mr. Léon Hégnier, 23, from Sailly-en-Cambrai, Mr. Ramette had come from Zutquerque and was heading towards Audruicq. Suddenly, both, along with their wives and the two children aged 8 and 2 and a half, saw high in the sky and to their right an unusual object of round shape and pinkish-white color, smaller than the moon, but much bigger than a star, and seemed to be heading towards them. They remained petrified: the object went out. They resumed their journey and saw it again, reignited and moving away from them to their left, faster than a jet plane.

Mr. Ramette, who recounts the event, is a beet tarter at the Audruicq railway station. His son, 2 and a half, is still terrified by the apparition. His wife denies having been afraid, but admits to having returned quickly to her accommodation and not having dared to come out to go to the movies.
