October 14, 1954, Saint RaphaŽl, Var:

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


The regional newspaper Nice Matin for October 16, 1954, mentioned that "a machine almost similar, the same without doubt" that the one seen in Biot had been seen almost at the same hour above Saint-Raphael, among other places.

Jimmy Guieu told in his 1956 book that "the flying saucer that landed near Biot on October 14, 1954 at 06:15 p.m. was seen crisscrossing the sky by a crowd of people, especially in Saint-Raphael."



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 Saint-RaphaŽl, among other places.


The two authors indicate that on October 14, 1954, in St RaphaŽl in the department of the Var, shortly after 06:15 p.m., an object was observed in the sky.

[Ref. lcn1:] LUC CHASTAN:

Luc Chastan indicates in his database that in the Var in St RaphaŽl on October 14, 1954 "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. ubk1:] "UFO-DATENBANK":
