October 2, 1954, Azé, Loir-et-Cher:

Reference number for this case: 2-oct-54-Azé. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

In the 1990's, French ufologist and author Jean Sider said he in an article from the newspaper Le Vendômois, of Vendôme, page 3, for October 7, 1954, that on October 2, 1954, in Azé in the department of Loir-et-Cher, ...

... "Mr. and Mrs. Bredon, resident of Azé, at the location Belles Everies, write to us: 'Saturday October 2, at 08:30 p.m., we saw above our garden, at five or six meters in altitude, a machine in the shape of a sausage, of firy orange color. It was flat as we could note it when it moved in front of our eyes. In half an hour time, the "sausage" landed behind the wall of our garden, in a small rattling noise! When the net day morning we went on the spot, we did not find anything'."

Two years later, the "skeptical" ufologist Renaud Leclet noted this case in a list of cases that could actually have been helicopter sightings.

[Ref. rlt1:] RENAUD LECLET - "LES MYSTERES DE L'EST":

Renaud Leclet lists cases that he thinks have "similarities with helicopters", including this one:

The author lists an observation in Azé in the Loir-et-Cher on October 2, 1954 at 20:30 as "very near", approximately 5 meters, "then lands" of a "Fire orange cylinder." He notes that Azé is in the valley of the brook of the Boulon.

He indicates that his source is "Lumières Dans La Nuit" magazine number 319 on page 9.

[Ref. lcn1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates in his database that in the Loir et Cher in Azé on October 2, 1954 at 20:30 hours, "a fire orange cylinder was observed during half an hour, it was with less than 5 meters in height, then landed."

The source is indicated as my website at "http://ufologie.net".

[Ref. uda1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website lists a sighting in "Aze", France, on 2 October 1954 at 20:30.

The source is indicated as "Hatch, Larry, *U* computer database, Author, Redwood City, 2002".

Explanations:

One particular helicopter would be a good candidate, the SNCASO SO.1110 Ariel II:

Ariel II

Prototype helicopter Ariel II, shown at the Bourget museum.

Source of the photo: Pline - Travail personnel- Hélicoptère léger Ariel (F-WFRQ), prototype (1950), Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace, Paris Le Bourget (France) "Own work, copyleft: Multi-license with GFDL and Creative Commons CC-BY-SA-2.5 and older versions (2.0 and 1.0)"

The SNCASO SO.1110 Ariel II flew from 1949 on, but it should be noted that there were only two of them built. There was an Ariel I and an Ariel III, but the Ariel II seems to have been the only one to have had this orange painting.
