The 1954 French flap:

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

Beginning of October, 1954, Blaye, Gironde:

Reference for this case: Beg-Oct-54-Blaye.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In a general catalog of sighting reports of the Gironde written by the Bordeaux section of the C.F.R.U., published in the ufology magazine Ouranos in the fourth quarter of 1973, it is said that according to the Sud-Ouest newspaper for October 8, 1954, the following observation occurred:

Before October 8, 1954, therefore, at Blaye, Mr. and Mrs. Dubreuilh reportedly saw seen a kind of orange-colored flying "banana", just above the railway station; which disappeared at high speed towards Lamarque in the Southwest while illuminating the horizon of a bright red color similar to a sunset.




Before October 8, 1954 Blaye BA V4

Witnesses: Mr. and Mrs. Dubreuilh. Kind of orange color flying "banana", just above the railway station. Disappeared at high speed towards Lamarque (S.W.) illuminating the horizon with a bright red color similar to a sunset.

S.O. for Oct. 8, 54

[Ref. gep1:] UFOLOGY GROUP "GEPO":

10/7/54 08:30 p.m. Blaye-station --> SW 307C2



The information is quite poor, the apparent srangeness very weak. It could have been a meteor, for example.
