name is Jean-Charles DUBOC, and I am a retired Air France
Captain. During Air France Flight 3532 from Nice to London,
on 28 January 1994, I observed, with my crew, a dayliqht
UFO near Paris. We had few passengers on board and none
of them had reported that observation to the crew. The time
was 1:00 P.M., and the visibility was excellent with some
object had been identified initially by a steward who
was in the cockpit and by the copilot as a weather balloon,
but when I identified it, it looked quite different. In
fact, this UFO was in evolution and it looked like this
(I shall then show a drawing), with a bank angle of 45°.
It seemed to be a huge flying DISC. It stabilized and
stopped moving (moving horizontally the drawing).
observed it over one minute on the LEFT on our plane,
surprisingly totally stationary in the sky, and it disappeared
progressively (turn of the drawing).This large object
was below us at the altitude of 35, 000 ft (we were at
39 000 if), at a distance of about 25 nautical miles.
colour was RED BROWN with BLURRED outlines.
apparent diameter of this object could be compared to
the diameter of the moon, or the sun. That means that
it was about 1000 feet wide".
