Reference for this case: 14-Oct-54-Gourdon.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


The regional newspaper Nice Matin for October 16, 1954, reported that a flying saucer had been observed in the sky of the Midi at the same time from different places, including Gourdon.



And here are the "flying saucers" in the sky of Midi!...


Almost at the same time, a similar machine (the same one undoubtedly) was seen above Grasse, Saint Raphael, Opio, Gourdon, Bar-sur-Loup and Roquebrune-Cape-Martin.


[Ref. jgu1:] JIMMY GUIEU:

The author indicates that the flying saucer that landed close to Biot on October 14, 1954 at 18:15 was seen furrowing the skies by a crowd of people, in Gourdon, among other places.


The two authors indicate that on October 14, 1954, shortly after 06:15 p.m., in Gourdon in the department of the Alpes-Maritime, an object was observed in the sky.

[Ref. lcn1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates in his database that in the Alpes Maritime in Gourdon on October 14, 1954 at an unknown hour "Little after eighteen hour fifteen observation of an object in the sky."

The source is noted: "Ovni, Premier dossier complet... by Figuet M./ Ruchon J.L. ** Alain Lefeuvre pub. 1979".

[Ref. uda1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that on 14 October 1954 at 18:15, in Gourdon, France, "An unidentified object was sighted, but with appearance and behavior that most likely would have a conventional explanation. One object was observed by several witnesses."

The website indicates that the source is Guieu, Jimmy, Flying Saucers Come from Another World, Citadel, New York, 1956.
