MARCH 1, 1964 ………LE BOURGET FRANCE
One of the most intriguing UFO incidents of early 1964 actually occurred a week prior to the Oberwesel case, in the Le Bourget region of Paris in France in the early hours of the 1st March. The French Air Force pilot was returning back to base at around 2:30 am following a routine night patrol mission when he witnessed a strange “weak gleam of short duration” ahead and below him.
As the pilot looked at the scene more closely, he could make out five silhouettes moving about below, seemingly coming back and forth from a landed “machine” on the ground below. The object appeared to be round, at least the part that was lit up and was visible to the pilot above. The silhouettes, who the pilot surmised were the occupants of the craft, appeared to concentrate on the area around the craft.
As he continued to watch, the glowing light suddenly went out. A few moments later, the object began to rise off the ground, hovering in the air for several moments. The pilot could see the underside was flatter than the oval-shaped topside of the craft that until a few seconds ago had been glowing warmly.
Then, without making a sound or displaying any form of obvious propulsion, the object shot directly upward into the air at, speed and disappeared into the black sky.
Upon examining the area where he had first seen the object the following morning, the pilot discovered discolored parts of grass and vegetation. Despite this, though, the pilot would keep the incident to himself.
We should note, in fact, this account arrives in the public arena via one of the many “report a UFO” websites available, and was reported anonymously in this manner, to a French website in 2007. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
