FROM OUR READERS

AGAIN BAVIC IN 1954
BUT ON OCTOBER 2

On October 2, 1954, the Laussucq couple were working in the fields, near Sarthou, the outskirts of Dax, with their farm worker, Mr. Dumey.

It was a sunny afternoon and suddenly a bright glow caught their attention: a formation of five vertical cylinders was moving across the sky. The sun was reflecting off these metallic white objects. The five cylinders were aligned parallel, and the middle one, which was longer than the others, swayed slightly.

No noise, no wake accompanied the rectilinear movement of these objects towards the west. They could follow them with their eyes for a few minutes, and they gradually disappeared towards the west towards the ocean.

Brief investigation, the memories of witnesses, seventeen years later, being quite limited.

(Investigation by M. Lestage and Barret.)

[Ref. pco1:] PRIVATE COMMUNICATION:

Field investigators and ufologists Lestage and Barret learned about this case 17 years after the facts and had the possibility to interview the witnesses, whose memories were scarse but interesting.

On October 2, 1954, in the afternoon, Mr. and Mrs. Laussucq worked in the fields in the surroundings of Sarthou, in the vicinity of the city of Dax. They were in company of their farm workman, Mr. Dumey.

A brilliant gleam suddenly drew their attention. They then observed a formation of five cylinders, aligned vertically and moving in the sky. The five cylinders were in lined in parralel one to each other, the one in the middle was slightly longer than the others and oscillated slightly. The objects reflected the sun on their surface of white metallic aspect.

There had been no noise nor contrail or smoke while the formation moved in straight line towards the West. The witnesses followed this displacement during a few minutes, the objects being gradually lost from sight as they went away towards the west in the direction of the ocean.

The following drawing was composed by Mr. Barret and was approved by the witnesses:

[Ref. lcn1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates in his database that in the Landes in Dax on October 2, 1954, at an unknown hour, in the afternoon, a couple worked in the fields in the surroundings of the Sarthou, a suburb of Dax. They were in company of their farm worker. A brilliant gleam suddenly caught their attention. They then observed a formation of five cylinders, aligned vertically and moving in the sky. The five cylinders were in parallel aligned the ones with the others, the one in the middle was slightly longer than the others and oscillated slightly. The objects reflected the sun on their surface of metallic aspect. There had been no noise nor wake while the formation moved in straight line towards the West. The witnesses followed this displacement during a few minutes, the objects being gradually lost sight of the fact towards the West in direction of the ocean.
