A flying disc seen by three people in Ollioules (Var)

OLLIOULES (C.P.). -- Whereas the train of 09:20 p.m. was in the station of Ollioules-Sanary, a shining disc, releasing blue, red and orange colors, located at 2.000 m of altitude approximately and which moved at high speed towards the west, was seen by Mr. Bruno, aged 72, from his residence, opposite the cofee-shop-tobacconist Janot of the district of the station in Ollioules.

Mr. Bruno immediately called his wife, aged 63, who also saw the machine.

In addition, Mr. George Brotier, hairdresser, aged 21, residing campagne Castel, district of the plan, in Ollioules, claims to have seen at the same hour a similar machine.

SAUCER IN THE AREA OF ORAN

ORAN. -. Around 3 hours, Mr. Gaston Blanquère, residing in Oran, returned with passengers on board his car. Shortly after the Jean-Mermoz village, the attention of the motorists was drawn to a sharp gleam coming from the south and which quickly grew bigger. A luminous disc crossed the road above them, descended a few hundreds meters further and appeared to contact the ground. The machine had the size of a small car. It was composed of a higher cupolla from which came out a yellow gleam. The lower part of the disc let escape a bluish luminous sheaf. Kinds of very powerful headlights swept the plain.

Ten minutes later the luminosity dimmed and the machine, taking altitude, moved away fast and without noise.

The police chief of the Sig, during his investigation, had these statements confirmed by a fellah of a nearby douar.
