Coast to Coast AM, 27th June 2012
Host: George Noory
Guests: James Fox, Travis Walton, Col. John Alexander
In the first half, documentary filmmaker James Fox talked about his involvement in the new National Geographic Channel series Chasing UFOs. The first episode is centered on Texas, and features detailed information on the 2008 Stephenville UFO case including an interview with eyewitness Ricky Sorrells who described seeing a craft so large that he couldn’t see the end of it. The UFO accelerated away so quickly from Sorrells that if he’d blinked he would have missed it, Fox recounted, adding that an off-camera witness told him that the military confiscated video footage from the local police department. Author Col. John Alexander briefly joined the discussion to note similarities between the Stephenville and Phoenix Lights cases.
Noted alien abductee Travis Walton also participated in the discussion– his case will be featured on an upcoming Chasing UFOs episode about Arizona incidents. In reflecting on his 1975 abduction, he now views it as possibly a kind of “ambulance call,” with the ETs healing him after he was hit by an energy pulse when he got too close to their ship. Fox said the show also traveled to Brazil to examine the Varginha alien encounter case of 1996, where several children were said to see 3-4 ft. tall oily creatures with ridges on their heads. He revealed that a military officer allegedly died 3 weeks after handling one of the creatures.
