SHOCK DOCS – ALIEN ABDUCTION: TRAVIS WALTON

TWO-HOUR SPECIAL – Begins Streaming Friday, February 18 on discovery+

On November 5, 1975, a seven-person logging crew drives home after a long workday in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest when they suddenly encounter a UFO. One of the men, 22-year-old Travis Walton, gets out of the truck to investigate. His crewmates are horrified when they witness a bolt of blue light flash from the alien ship that knocks Travis to the forest floor. Fearing Travis dead, the crewmates flee back to town and call the sheriff. When a search of the area turns up no sign of Travis, puzzling questions arise. Was Travis truly abducted by aliens? Did his coworkers murder Travis or have something to do with his disappearance and concoct the UFO story to cover their tracks? The six crewmen pass polygraph examinations, but rumors persist. The Walton story becomes an international media sensation and pushes the residents of rural Snowflake, Arizona, to the brink. Years later, the film “Fire in the Sky brings awareness of the story to a whole new group of UFO investigators. They uncover physical evidence that may prove alien visitation of planet Earth.

An archival photo shows Travis Walton (third from the left) and his logging crewmates who witnessed his alien abduction outside of Snowflake, Arizona.
