Phoenix, AZ – Ten years after the Arizona UFO incident known as the “Phoenix Lights,” former Arizona Republican Governor Fife Symington, III, now says that he himself was a witness to one of the “craft of unknown origin,” even though he originally did not say so publicly.

In an exclusive interview by Leslie Kean, an investigative reporter with the Washington-based Coalition for Freedom of Information, released today in the Prescott Daily Courier, Symington now admits that he saw an enormous, inexplicable craft that evening.

On March 13, 1997, during Symington’s second term as Governor, thousands saw gigantic triangular and V-shaped unidentified objects, gliding slowly and silently across the sky. Witnesses throughout the state estimated that the eerie, lighted vehicles were bigger than many football fields, up to a mile long.

They reported that these were clearly solid, technological flying machines that blocked out the stars - not merely lights. The objects were seen earlier than the row of lights near Phoenix, videotaped and shown repeatedly on television, which were most likely flares.

Symington was well known for ridiculing the incident at a spoof press conference, so his statement marks a dramatic turnaround. According to his comments to Kean, he wants to make amends to his constituents and set the record straight.

The former Governor, a cousin of the late Missouri Senator Stuart Symington, states that the incident remains unsolved, and should be officially investigated. The U.S. Government has never acknowledged that something was in the sky that night, despite official documentation of a very similar flying craft of unknown origin investigated in the 1990’s by the governments of England and Belgium.



The story of former Governor Fife Symington coming clean on his own UFO sighting in Phoenix, and his subsequent handling of the investigation, is a result of his new interview with executive producer James Fox of "Out of the Blue". That documentary is going to be re-released at its 5 year anniversary, this Spring, 2007. Additional footage, including the Symington-Fox interview, will be added to that film. HERE'S A LINK TO OUT OF THE BLUE.

Credibility will be an issue in any interview with Governer Symington. He essentially led what many feel is the debunking investigation of the Phoenix lights, back in 1997, so any turnaround on this issue should be scrutinized.

He also was embroiled in a 7 year battle with the federal government with felony allegations of extortion and bank fraud. He was convicted on felony charges in 1997, which was later overturned on appeal in 1999, followed by a full presidential pardon in 2001.That said, we are talking about a State Governor.

If anything, this will help re-shed light back on the 1997 Phoenix Lights flap.

So tell all your friends that you heard it here first! Governor Symington alleges to have seen Black Triangles flying over Phoenix on the night of March 13th, 1997.
