    I like this guy. He seems fine to me. I believe he believes what he's saying and that he doesn't care whether we do or not. Don't think there is anything useful to be gleaned from this but this is one of those cases that will just stay in the WTF file probably forever.

    Not long after this happened I brought a copy of UFO Magazine - or something like it I don't remember - and showed it to my 4th grade teacher who told me "you know that isn't real." Had that iconic sketch of the alien in it. Who would have thought all these years later we're still talking about it?

    I remember when this took place even though I was very young at the time. For some reason, there were a lot of alleged alien encounters in 1973 and this was one that really stood out. I always got the impression that neither one of the men wanted the encounter to occur. It seemed like they just wanted to be left alone to fish but they were dragged into this.

    a hallmark of a credible case is the witnesses.
    Parker always was quiet on the event.
    He never wanted fame. He never Attempted to "cash in " on the event.
    Hickson was more vocal on the event.
    But I don't think he tried to "cash in " as well.
    The conduct of the witnesses speak loudly of the reality of the event.

    "cash in" or become minor celebrities, or both. Travis Walton comes to mind right away as someone who stands out in contrast to Parker & Hickson.
    Those two just strike me as deckhands off of a Bubba Gump shrimping boat who were in the wrong place at the wrong time. I honestly don't know what to make of the incident and have only a few video clips to go by but again, I like these guys.

    PS - you said Madison right? My whole family is in Racine. Man I could use a brat right now

    Walton's conduct to cash in speaks loudly Tacos Walton wants money.
    these guys never stuck me wrong.

    I had a lot of respect for Travis Walton until the movie version of his story came out. Certain elements of the movie, like the sexy blonde bombshells in the tight blue suits, made the who thing feel downright insulting.

    Walton did not make the movie. He has said many times that the scenes aboard the ship or whatever were not based on anything he told anyone. Of course it is very common for "true story" movies to be comically unrelated to reality. If memory serves, what he could remember of being on board was mostly a vague and confusing muddle. That doesn't make for excitement on the screen, though. At least it had Tommy Lee Jones in it.

    I saw Fire in the Sky recently. I remember an early version on the polymemetic Terminator and James Garner but not Tomy Lee Jones or as Sheltie put it "sexy blonde bombshells" . What movie are you referring to? I admit I could be missing something. Sounds like a better movie than the one I saw.

    Yes, I agree that his version and the theatrical release are two different animals out of theatrical necessity.

    I find Walton's behavior after his reappearance to be questionable. Could be that our two friends from 1973 Mississippi have made appearances at conferences etc. that I don't know about but I get the impression that those two cornpones were telling it as they saw it. Not like Rendlesham where years later a first hand witness decides to add to the story. No, these two nitwits sound sincere in the face of the otherwise ridiculous.

    One of the most odd cases of 1973 flap is that of the "tin woodsman " on Oct 17th a Alabama sheriff got a call of a plane crash. when he ivestagated he saw a bizzare entity in the road. He described it as a robot with an antenna on his head. he took this poor photo before it ran off he jumped in his car to cut it off. when it took off at 60 MPH.
    many think he was hoaxed.

    I must be gettin' old. Now I'm confusing Agent K with Rockford. Sheesh. Whichever space cowboy it was who played the grumpy sheriff was pretty convincing, I thought. Many years ago. Great, now I'm going to have to find the movie and watch it again.

    Anyway, I just don't see a good reason to judge Walton's story by the movie that was made (more or less) about it. Walton himself was not happy with the way the weirdness was handled in the movie. He had no control over that. I lived in Mormon country for a while, have known quite a few Mormons, and I don't think he's lying. There has never been a "rational" explanation for the events. Sure, lots of people who would otherwise have a lot of trouble sleeping at night have cobbled together silly scenarios that make less sense than the movie version, but that's far from unusual.

    the movie is a big reason I think the case is a hoax. not due to the content but die to fact that Walton was cashing in on his 15 min of fame.

    the falksville tin man is one of the only 2 real ufonaut photographic cases
    the other one is this one:
    ufo - UFOs at close sight: The Filiberto Caponi close encounters of the 3rd kind, 1993

    it brings me the chills to know that we are staring right now at the eyes of a being that officially doesn't exists
