Travis Walton became famous when his story broke that he had been abducted by a UFO. Not only had he been abducted, but it had happened with multiple witnesses. The Travis Walton case is one of the most famous UFO cases of all time. In commemoration of the 40th anniversary, Walton and others returned to the actual abduction site for a special UFO conference.
HEBER/OVERGAARD — “They forced me down on the table, but I lost consciousness, and the next thing I remember is waking up on a highway,” recalled Travis Walton on the 40th anniversary of his abduction by an unidentified flying object.For the full article, click here.
To mark the occasion, Walton hosted a Skyfire Summit UFO conference in Overgaard last weekend.
“I didn’t know how much time had gone by but later found out it was five days and six hours. I was badly injured and could feel the cold of the pavement, but my clothes were warm. I saw the disc shoot off into the sky and then saw the lights of Heber/Overgaard.”
On Nov. 5, 1975, Walton was part of a seven-man logging crew working in the Sitgreaves National Forest near Heber. As they were leaving that night, they all saw a bright light off to their right. When they got closer, they saw a bright saucer-shaped UFO hovering about 20 feet over a clearing.
Walton was the only one who got out of the truck to investigate.
“I was awestruck and entranced by the beauty of the thing. I thought it would take off, but it didn’t and I didn’t appreciate the danger I was in,” said Walton during a panel discussion at the conference with two of his former crew members.
At the discussion with Walton were Mike Rogers, the driver of the truck, and John Goulette. It was the first time the three of them had been all together in 40 years.
