End August, 1954, Amiens, Somme:

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


In an article published in Fate magazine in the USA, in August 1957, Aimé Michel assured that at the end of August 1954, the skies of France were "swarming with saucers", among others in Amiens.


[Ref. aml2:] AIME MICHEL:

The number of saucer sightings continued to acce1erate. Each day several were reported. By the end of August [1954], at the moment when Wilbert Smith, who had predicted the phenomenon, closed his observatory at Shirley's Bay near Ottawa because nothing special was happening in Canada, the skies over Lyon, Angers, and over the entire Paris region were swarming with saucers.

From Munich, Innsbruck, Amiens, from the Pyrenees to Berlin, from Brittany to Trieste the reports of UFOs came in.

[Ref. lgs1:] 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.
