Fiffe, Alabama UFO Sightings Verbatim Transcript WBMG Action News, Birmingham, Alabama March 3, 1989 Courtesy of The Connection RBBS, Birmingham (205) 854-9074 Greta McHenry, WBMG Action News, Birmingham, Alabama: So you think that sighting UFO's, unidentified flying objects, only happens in the movies? Try telling this to the residents of Fiffe, Alabama, a northeastern farm town of about 1300. The story began about three Friday evenings ago, when Donna Saylor was returning home with her sister. Donna Saylor, First Eyewitness, Fiffe, Alabama: "It was 7:30 I'd say, and my sister and I were coming home from town and we spotted a bright light over in the sky just above the treetops. We commented on how... you know... what it was and how low it was and stuff and the fact that it wasn't moving. We looked right straight at it, and we got to look at it about 5 to 8 seconds or so and the object just disappeared." Greta McHenry, WBMG Action News, Birmingham, Alabama: After Mrs. Saylor's sighting of the UFO, she contacted the Fiffe Police Department around 8:40 P.M. Assistant Police Chief Fred Words and the Police Chief responded to the call. While traveling DeKalb County Road 43, they too noticed a large lighted object overhead. They stopped to investigate. Fred Works, Assistant Police Chief, Fiffe, Alabama: "I watched it, it just got bigger and bigger and had lights kind of down under it shining back on the bottom of it. And we never heard a sound from it. It appeared to be no sound whatsoever." Greta McHenry, WBMG Action News, Birmingham, Alabama: Since the first reported sighting, other Fiffe residents say they have seen a similar object. Rhonda Worley, Eyewitness, Fiffe, Alabama: "It's really hard to explain it until you've seen it for yourself, but it was, it was something I've never seen before." Greta McHenry, WBMG Action News, Birmingham, Alabama: Those who have seen "it" say that they want to see "it" again, to perhaps make sense out of something that remains yet unexplained.
