Aimé Michel reported in 1958 that on 16 September 1954, an observation was reported in Lyon, which turned out to be an airplane with an unusual contrail.

The case nevertheless appeared without any information other than Lyon - France, and the date, the mention "Day" and the category "Daytime Disk", in a German ufology database on the Web.
