October 16, 1954, Dieppe, Seine-Maritime:

Reference for this case: 16-Oct-54-Dieppe.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In the 2010s, a German UFO database on the Web indicated that on October 16, 1954, in Dieppe, France, there was a "close encounter of the third kind" case at nightfall.

No other information and no sources were given, and to date I found nothing else on this alleged sighting.

Then in 2019 I found in a listing of 1966 by the American Thomas Olsen, a reference that on October 16, 1954, somewhere southeast of Dieppe, there would have been an observation on the N-314, with one witness, and that the source would be page 184 of Aimé Michel's 1954 book "Flying Saucers and the Straight Line Mystery".


[Ref. ton1:] THOMAS M. OLSEN:

Oct. 16, 1954 O, N-314, S.E. OF DIEPPE (MICHEL-1958 P 184 1 W.) 3-36

[Ref. ubk1:] "UFO-DATENBANK":

This database recorded this case twice:
