Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

According to a US ufologist, Aimé Michel reported in his 1958 book that on September 26, 1954, one minute after an observation at a radio station, a small humanoid in a diving-suit was seen by Mr. Guyard at the airport of Challes in the department of Savoy, France.

This being would have dandled fast towards a saucer-shaped craft and entered there. A circle of 3 meters is said to have been found at the landing site.

There seems to be no other information.

On this Day

September 26


1954 - One minute after the radio station sighting a short humanoid in a diver suit was seen by a Mr. Guyard at the Challes Airport in Savoie department, France. The being waddled quickly toward and got into a saucer-shaped craft. A ten-foot circle was found at the landing site. (Source: Aime Michel, Flying Saucers and the Straight Line Mystery, p. 81).

Points to consider:

Oddly enough, there is no mention at all of this case in "Mystérieux Objets Célestes", the French version of "Flying Saucers and the Straight Line Mystery", by Aimé Michel, and I was unable to find even a single other source for this case.
