MAY OR JUNE 1956, EAST OF FLANDERS, BELGIUM, A GIRL:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

It seems that in a 2003 issue of the GESAG ufology bulletin, a report said that in the east of the Flanders, in Belgium, on May or June 1956 at 04:00 p.m., a 12-year-old girl was playing in the kitchen garden behind the family home, when suddenly her her attention was attracted by an object above the northwestern wall at the end of the garden.

The object seemed to come from the north and to fly towards the south. It was flying above the western corner of the garden, where huge trees and a big oak were located.

When the circular object was just above the tree line, the girl saw two beings of human appearance through the translucent surface of the vehicle. They smiled and waved their arms.

The object flew away towards the south.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in East Flanders, Belgium, on May or June 1956 at 04:00 p.m., a 12-year-old girl was playing in the kitchen garden behind the family home.

Suddenly the girl had her attention attracted by an object, which appeared above the northwestern wall at the end of the garden. The object seemed to come from the north and to fly towards the south. It was flying above the western corner of the garden, where huge trees and a big oak were located.

At the moment that the circular object was just above the tree line, the girl saw two beings of human appearance. She could see them through the translucent surface of the vehicle; they smiled and waved their arms.

The encounter finished quickly as the object disappeared towards the south.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Bulletin du Gesag # 109, March 2003.

Points to consider:

The thin account does not include information which would be necessary to discard or confirm that it could have been simply an helicopter: for example, nothing is said on the noise or silence of the craft, and for the remainder, nothing shows to indicate that it would be anything else than an helicopter.
