Reference number for this case: 21-Oct-54-Le Moulin Wibert. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

The regional newspaper La Voix du Nord, in the local issue of Boulogne for October 23, 1954, reported that on October 21, 1954, around 7:40 p.m., a Boulogne fishmonger who was driving on the Route de Wimereux at the height of the "Moulin Wibert" had seen a phenomenon identical to that of Outreau, quite low above the sea, consisting of a very bright bulge, followed by a scintillating trail whose length he estimated at nearly a hundred meters.

All the witnesses had said that the "mysterious craft which was spun at the speed of a jet plane, was absolutely silent."

ANOTHER ONE!

Thursday evening, around 7:30 p.m., members of the staff of the Aciéries de Paris-Outreau clearly saw, coming from the direction of the sea, then flying over Outreau, a luminous craft of circular shape. Some have even distinguished a sort of dome in the central region.

The craft emitted a very bright light and was followed by a trail of bluish flame.

Around 7:40 p.m., a Boulogne fishmonger, who, by car, was driving on the Wimereux road near the "Moulin Wibert" saw an identical phenomenon, rather low above the sea, formed by a very bright bulge, followed by a scintillating trail, the length of which he estimated at nearly a hundred meters.

The testimonies also agree that the mysterious craft which apparently spun at the speed of a jet plane was absolutely silent.
