In the early 1980s, a "UFO" was spotted northwest of Maxwell AFB. It was seen over a two hour period, and it moved in the direction of Prattville. Sgt Jimmy Hall spotted it, and John Bolender of MAFB Flight Control tracked it on radar. Although the UFO approached the Prattville airport, there were no personnel there to identify it in the early morning hours.
Note: Even though this story is published on "April Fools' Day", this was a real story in the newspaper.
