Travis Walton on The Joiner Report

The Joiner Report
Travis Walton

Fire in The Sky      Travis Walton claims to have been abducted by a UFO on November 5, 1975, while working on a logging crew in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest in Arizona. Walton could not be found, but reappeared after five days of intensive searches. The Walton case received considerable mainstream publicity and remains one of the best-known instances of alleged alien abduction.

In his book The Walton Experience, Walton relates in his own words the best documented account of alien abduction yet recorded, the story of his harrowing ordeal at the hands of silent captors and his return to a disbelieving world of hostile interrogators, exploitative press and self-styled “debunkers.” Travis recounts the struggle to get a fair hearing and confronts his detractors with a stinging rebuttal. (

He later changed the book’s title to Fire in the Sky. In 1993, it was adapted into film (Tracy Torme screenplay, Robert Lieberman director) with D.B. Sweeney in the role of Walton. James Garner also appeared in the movie.

Walton has been a guest on Weird Travels-Alien Encounters on the Travel Channel, Alternate Realities Conference, Northwest UFO Paranormal Conference, various MUFON engagements, ABC Television Special, and the Bay Area UFO Expo as well as other appearances.

Listening guests are invited to submit specific questions prior to the Sep. 25 broadcast to Joiner at
