A flying cigar landed in Blanzy

Yesterday, around 1 p.m., MM. Burato and Bastiani, living in Blanzy, aged 20, saw at 100 meters from the road where they were traveling, a machine in the form of a shell, brown, landed in a plowed field. The device emitted a fairly soft whistling sound. This is actually what caught their attention.

Suffocated by this apparition, they no less put the feet on the gorund to go closer, but the craft suddenly rose vertically and disappeared at breakneck speed.

"It was not an optical illusion," said MM. Burano and Bastiani, who are perfectly balanced young men, excellent cyclists well known in Burgundy, in addition.
