The 1954 French flap:

The index page for the 1954 French flap section of this website is here.

October 2, 1954, Dijon, Côte-d'Or:

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

Summary:

In the regional newspaper L'Ardennais for October 6, 1954, I found, in an enumeration of observation places: Dijon.

In 1958, Aimé Michel told in his book it occurred on October 2, 1954, while later, Louis Schoenherr gave October 1, 1954, in his catalog.

I found nothing else so far about this sighting; which seems to have fascinated ufologists on the grounds that it would be "aligned" with others.
