Travis Walton, Fire in the Sky
“I looked at the vague but reassuring forms of the doctors around me. Abruptly my vision cleared. The sudden horror of what I saw rocked me as I realized I was definitely not in a hospital. I was looking square into the face of a horrible creature… with huge, luminous brown eyes the size of quarters! I looked frantically round me. There were three of them! Hysteria overcame me instantly.” – Travis Walton
We'd just finished working, because it was getting dark. We packed up to leave and we all got in the truck and we were riding up the road, and we looked off to the right side of the road, and I saw a glow that I thought was a sunset or something. I was about to comment, when we came past the thicket that we were looking through to where we could see more clearly, and we saw a UFO hovering in the air, about thirty yards off to the side of the road. Everybody started yelling and they stopped the truck. I wanted to get a closer look and I got out of the truck and I started over there. Everybody was yelling to come back, to stop. I stopped to look back. Somebody called my name, and I turned back around, and it started to make a noise and started to move, and I took one step, I crouched down behind a log that was there, and just as I started to raise up, I was just going to stand up, I didn't have any intention of going any closer, but it was just as if I was struck. It was kind of a physical blow. It just knocked me back. I don't remember seeing any flash of light or anything like what they described. I just lost consciousness. When I regained consciousness, I was looking up at a light shining down on me from the ceiling. I could tell I was lying up on a bed or a table or something, because the ceiling was close. I was in a lot of pain. I couldn't quite bring myself totally awake.
“Walton’s experience stands out by virtue of its not being particularly bizarre as far as abduction accounts go” – Terry Matheson
I heard somebody come in, and I turned around, and it was a man, just like people. I mean he wasn't like the other creatures, or whatever, at all. He looked just like you and I, except he had a helmet on, sort of a clear helmet.
I started babbling questions to him, and I ran over there, and he wouldn't answer me. He just took me by the arm and wanted me to go with him. And I thought maybe he can't hear me through the helmet. – Travis Walton
So we went out through the door, down to the right, and out to the left. There was a small room there. It had doors on it, and it was kind of like an air lock. It was just a small room with nothing in it, and then there was a door that went outside. And it was a ramp that went down, and it was cool outside. I could feel wind. There was a draft or something. It was a large room, that this thing was sitting on the floor in there, and it was shaped like the drawing that they made, like the thing we saw the first time, only bigger. And there were two other things in there—other UFO….. to look like flying saucers, kind of, except that they were rounded and oval-shaped, and they were really shiny, like chrome. It was a big room, like there was a lot more room in there. And there was a curved ceiling. It curved this way, and it had flat ends to the room. I came out of the door, out of that first ship, facing this way, and there was a doorway across in the far wall. He'd led me across there and through that doorway, down a hallway, to a room, and I'd had a burning in my chest, and it was starting....I felt better....I was trying to get this man to tell me what....you know, I asked him if he was from Earth and just anything I could think of, and he wouldn't answer.
I was led down the hallway. The man sat me in a chair, and in a room with three other people that were like himself. They were dressed in blue. And he went out....there was a door on the other side....he went on through, and I sat in the chair, and I tried to get the people to talk to me that were there, and they didn't have things on their head, and so I thought that maybe they could hear me, but they wouldn't answer either. There were two men and a woman in the room after the first man left. A man and a woman came from around the table, and they each took me by the arm and they led me over to the table, and got me up on the table, and finally I don't know why I should cooperate with them. They put a deal over my face. It was kind of like an oxygen mask thing. It was kind of clear plastic and it had a round, black thing on it about that big, just attached to it. I looked up at the ceiling which was just all solid light. There wasn't any light fixture or anything, but light in the room, just coming from the ceiling, and that was the last I remembered. I went to sleep. Until I woke up. I was lying on the pavement. It was very cold. I woke up very suddenly, and I looked up the roadway. I was lying outside. It was night. And I could see a light on the bottom of a flying saucer that looked just like the rounded ones that were inside there. And it was very shiny, but the only light came out of the bottom, and that went off, and it went straight up, just really fast, just without a sound. – Travis Walton

A lot has came out about Travis Walton and how he hide out at a friends house during the days he was missing. One of the guys later admitted that they all had tacks in their shoes that they would press down on when asked a question during the lie detector test. Travis was not abducted, it was all done to make money so he could get his logging buisness going.
