The 1954 French flap in the Press:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper La Bourgogne Républicaine, Dijon, France, page 4, on October 20, 1954.



Saulieu would soon be noticed by his stubbornness in not seeing a saucer. Now this gap is filled.

Thursday, around 5 p.m., Mr. Boyau, a shoemaker in Saulieu and his wife, was traveling on the R.N. 6 by car. Going up the Saublot coast, they suddenly saw a ball of fire cross the sky in a westerly direction, at breakneck speed. In the short time they took to complete the climb, the machine was already very far away and appeared in a rather elongated form. Was it a saucer or a flying cigar? It is certain, in any case, that this phenomenon comes out of the natural.

Saturday, around 10 p.m., five people were returning from Pouilly-en-Auxois by car. Arrived at the top of the hill of Bras-de-Fer, the occupants of the car suddenly saw a violently illuminated ball followed by a luminous trail of phosphorescent yellow, rise vertically very quickly and then move towards the south. at very high speed. The time for the driver to stop the machine had disappeared behind a hill, to the left of the road.

One of the people, particularly worthy of faith, who witnessed the passage of the luminous ball, assured us that he had never seen anything like it until then and that it is undoubtedly a a craft, saucer or cigar, whose appearance is reported everywhere.
