Phoenix UFO Mystery Solved: Swamp Gas Again?!
No, it wasn’t swamp gas, but there was gas! The Phoenix UFO mystery has received a lot of attention and speculation as to what those strange lights were over a high school football game in Scottsdale, Ariz., and there seems to be an answer. You shouldn’t put the idea of aliens in a spacecraft in your head when you see the abbreviation of UFO — It’s not AFO.
As the story got more and more publicity, a helicopter pilot for Fox Channel 10, Rick Crabbs, went on the air and told what he knew. And he knew a lot.
He was at an event called the “Halloween Balloon Spooktacular” in which a skydiving team called the Arizona Skyhawks jumped out of a plane with bright magnesium flares for a show. “I was at the location where those skydivers were coming in Friday night,” Crabbs stated in a Fox10 news report, “That’s exactly what happened: there were some skydivers. And they did have pyrotechnics on their ankles. There were four of them, and if you look at the video, you can see actually four different lights.”
