2018 IUFOC Panel: Travis Walton, Former Officer Chuck Ellison and Don Walton – In Their Own Words

In this panel, Travis will be accompanied by Chuck Ellison, the first police officer Travis’ fellow crewmen talked to when they could not find Travis after he disappeared, and Travis’ brother, Don. Chuck will share what it was like speaking to the young men the evening they lost their fellow logger, and his reaction to the wild tale they told. He will also share the details of the investigation to find Travis from the perspective of the local police. Don will share the impact the event had on his family. Once news got out of Travis’ disappearance and the wild UFO story his fellow crewmen told, the media ascended on Travis’ family. At one point Don had an altercation with a journalist while defending his mother. This is information few have heard, as appearances by these two gentlemen are very rare. This will be a special event exclusive to the International UFO Congress, and will include time for questions from the audience.

Bio: Travis Walton was the Arizona logger whose 1975 encounter with a UFO was made into the Paramount movie, “FIRE IN THE SKY”. Ignoring the warnings of his fellow crewmen, Walton approached the craft and was struck by a blast of energy from it and taken aboard. The crew were suspected of murdering Walton and making up a wild story to cover up for the deed until Arizona State Police lie detector tests cleared them.

    This was an excellent presentation with ample room for the Q & A sessions. Knowing the Walton UFO experience very well, I truly appreciated the added stories covering incidences we did not know. I salute Travis and the others for staying put with their knowledge and sharing it all during this panel sessions.

    Travis Walton Panel

    Posted by Karl Weaver on Mar 21st 2018

    Of the several DVDs I ordered, so far perhaps this was the most interesting. I already knew the basics of the story having watched the Hollywood movie and read his book. Most of these products end up "preaching to the choir" so to speak. This panel JUST MIGHT impress some skeptics enough to take the subject seriously. It doesn't fill in much information about the event itself that wasn't covered in Travis's book but listening to this panel might convince some people to read his book, who otherwise would not. It also briefly describes what an unfortunate impact the whole thing had on the lives of family members.
