August 29, 1954, Villacoublay, Yvelines:

Reference for this case: End-Aug-54-Villacoublay.
Please cite this reference in any correspondence with me regarding this case.


In 1990, the American ufologist Loren Gross quoted an article by Aimé Michel published in the American magazine Fate of January 1958, in which he wrote that in the last days of August 1954 Europe was teeming with UFOs, including an observation in Villacoublay.

Aimé Michel did speak of a sighting report by weathermen of the Villacoublay military aerodrome in his first book "Lueurs sur les Soucoupes Volantes" in 1954, and in the magazine Lumières Dans La Nuit N° 77 in 1965, but the case was was dated August 29, 1952. I suspect that Michel of Fate or Loren Gross made a mistake about the year.


[Ref. lgr1:] LOREN GROSS:

Swarms of UFOs.

By the last days of August Europe was swarming with UFOs if we can believe reports from Villacoublay, Brittany, Anger, Amiens, Lyon, and the Paris region of France; Munich and Berlin in Germany; Innsbruck in Austria; Trieste in Italy; and Stone and Stafford in England; to name a few. The visitation at Villacoublay on the 29th was seen and reported by military and technical personnel stationed at the French air base located in the vicinity. 214.



Totally insufficient information.

Probable 1952 case.
