UFOs in the daily Press:

The 1954 French flap in the Press:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper L'Oise-Matin, Beauvais, France, page 6, on October 6, 1954.

See the case file.



[Photo caption:] Mr. Plachot and his clerk indicate the direction taken by the strange and mysterious phenomenon.

As we announced on the first page, our corner of the sky has had the visit of these strange machines commonly called "saucer" or "flying cigar".

After all, nothing out of the ordinary, given that they are reported daily in many regions of France and even around the world.

It happened the day before yesterday Monday, October 4.

It was around 7 a.m. when Mr. and Mrs. Plachot, bakers at Fitz-James, saw, crossing the courtyard which leads to their bakehouse, a ball the size of a bowl, giving off a very dazzling orange glow.

Calling their clerk Daniel Elie, he was also able to get to know the mysterious craft which sometimes disappeared in the clouds.

For nearly a quarter of an hour they were able admire the phenomenon whose glow, orange, turned white.

Strolling, remaining motionless at times, the saucer went up in candlelight, all without making any noise.

Then the disk of fire began to circle and at high speed headed east.

Our corner of the sky of Clermont had also had the visit of these devices of fire seen again recently in several regions.
