May, June 1954, Brest, Finistère:

Reference for this case: May-June-54-Brest.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In his 1954 book "Flying Saucers Uncensored", British ufologist Harold T. Wilkins spoke of "mysterious explosions" in May and July 1954.

He said that something like a jet plane in flames fell into the sea off Brest, although no plane was in the sky; and he assured that the RAF could not clear up this mystery.


[Ref. hws1:] HAROLD T. WILKINS:

The data is obviously insufficient.

However, a meteor looks just like a falling plane in flames, and of course the supposed plane will not be found or identified.
