The article below was published in the daily newspaper Le Dimanche du Nord, France, page 1, on September 19, 1954.



land in Quarouble?

A resident of Quarouble, Mr. Marius Dewilde, told the police in Onnaing that he saw a flying saucer the other night land near his home. It was around 10:30 p.m. when his dog began to bark abnormally. Believing in a robbery in his barnyard, Mr. Dewilde went out and saw, less than six meters away, a craft which was hurriedly reinstated by two men, one meter tall, wearing glass helmets. Mr. Dewilde saw them in the beam of his electric flashlight and was even dazzled, he said, by the reflections reflected by the glass heads of the pilots of the saucer. The air police carried out their investigation which made it possible to find traces on one of the sleepers of the railway line near which Mr. Dewilde made his strange discovery...

The flying saucer
was just a joke

The flying saucer of Estrées-Deniécourt, near Amiens, was only a joke of a few electricians of a company of the city who admitted that they wanted to have fun at the expense of the press and the gendarmerie.

Minutes were drawn up for contempt of court and a report was sent to the Public Prosecutor in Amiens.
