UFOs in the daily Press:


The article below was published in the daily newspaper Var-Matin - République, France, on OCtober 26, 1954.

Is it another cigar?

One remembers the cigar which flew over Toulon on last 14 October. A new item was just brought by the declaration of Mrs. Dupont who, the same day, towards 6 p.m., whereas she was accompanied by her daughter, saw in the sky, an extremely illuminated aircraft spitting fire at the back, of an apparent size of 60 cm in length by 20 cm in width? [totally meaningless size!]

Perhaps, as Mrs. Dupont, who lives La Serinette, way of the calade, clearly saw a machine moving during three minutes before disappearing behind the Faron. What, by a simple calculation, gives this aircraft a speed of 120km/h, which is slow.

However, the machine seen by the other witnesses slipped by at a vertiginous speed. It would thus seem, that it is another cigar?
