AREA 51 is a military restricted area in the southern Nevada (the USA). Within the large Air Force training ground Nellis is an additionally secured military plant, their bare existence from the American government toa few years ago one kept secret. The air Force tests there new experimental airplanes. Around the complex many conspiracy theories climb, particularly concerning the existence extraterrestially on the military basis.

operations at the Groom Lake
combat units of the US army are not at the Groom Lake, but stations on the nearby Nellis AFB. Instead the base is used for the development and testing of new airplanes. With beginning of the series production of these airplanes the prototypes become tootheir new Einsatzbasen shifts. In addition, Groom should be the homeland base of some fewer airplanes Soviet Designs (those from different sources to originate, e.g. Defector from the cold war or completely official buyings up of moldawischer MiG-29). These are analyzed there and for enemy representation for the pilots thatNellis AFB used.
Groom Lake was used during the Second World War as bomb and artillery range, shut down then however until 1955, as it by the team of the Lockheed Advanced development Projects unit (better admits than Skunk Works) as the ideal placefor test flights of the U-2 of espionage airplane one selected. The lake was an ideal takeoff and landing strip for that test flight things which can be being been handling with difficulty, and the mountain courses as well as the Nevada Testgelände locked off anyway protected the secret airplane before all too curious views.
Lockheed built an auxiliary basis, those at the Groom Lakeof a few shelters, workshops and a camper settlement consisted. The first U-2 started in August 1955, and starting from center 1956 from the CIA used U-2 von Groom Lake began out her overflights/flyovers over Soviet territory.
During this time the NTS led a newSeries of atmospheric nuclear explosions through. The operations with the U-2 had to be interrupted therefore in the process of the yearly 1957 several times. With an attempt nuclear fall out came down over Groom Lake and forced to the temporary evacuation of the area.
There the major task of the U-2 the overflight/flyover over SovietTerritory was, it on bases near the Soviet borders was shifted, for example Incirlik in Turkey or Peshawar in Pakistan.
A-12 Oxcart/SR-71 Blackbird - program
before the development of the U-2 was final, began Lockheed with the work to their successor, thatProject Oxcart, a reconnaissance plane at full speed Mach 3 for large heights, which was developed further later to the SR-71 Blackbird. The flight characteristics and maintenance requirements of the Blackbird required an extensive development of the resting against the Groom Lake, in particular the starter systems. As the first prototype of the A-12 Oxcart 1962, the main runway flew to 2.600 m had been extended, and the basis constantly accommodated 1,000 men personnel. It possessed a fuel yard, a Tower (call signal: „Dreamland “) and even a baseball place. Also security was drastically increased, then the small civilian mine at the lake was closed, andthe area around the basis became round the strongly secured restricted area. Intruders could be shot without preliminary warning.
Have Blue/F-117 Nighthawk program
the first Have Blue - prototype of the later camouflage cap bomber Lockheed F-117 completed its first flight in Groom at the end of of 1977. The tests of the secretPrototypes lasted to in the middle of 1981, afterwards series production began. Except the tests of the flight characteristics in Groom also the Radarprofiling, weapon tests with the F-117 and the training of the first group by F-117-Piloten in combat units were accomplished. The first operations of the F-117 in the active serviceon the nearby strip in Tonopah were then shifted. Still a high security classification existed.
for the F-117 1983 was operational, continued the activities at the Groom Lake without reduction. The basis and the pertinent system from landing strips becamedeveloped. Newest satellite photos suggest a basis constantly occupied with 1.000 persons, to whom again daily of Vegas flown commuters read 1,000 comes. These pendulum flights take place with Boeing 737 jets from the McCarran air haven in read Vegas several times by day. The airplanes have allwith the call signal the prefix Janet and are identifiable by the white painting with a red line on window height. The tail fin is likewise in pure white painted. The terminal for these flights is in the proximity of the Mandalay Bay hotel in read Vegas. Janet stands for unconfirmed rumorsaccording to for Joint Airforce Navy Employee transport, which again to it would refer that the basis both of the Airforce and US Navy is operated.
1995 expanded the government the restricted area by the basis since some nearby hills, of which one beforea quite good view of the basis had.
Possibly also airplanes with nuclear energy drive are tested (see in the English-language Wikipedia: Black of triangles)
The air Force remains with its line to confirm or disclaim no rumors over Groom Lake and the activities there.
conception of a Aliens secrecy measures and the unquestionable connection too
conspiracy theories in connection with the AREA 51, Made airplane research, together with reports on uncommon phenomena the AREA 51 a central component of modern UFO - and conspiracy theories. To the unorthodox activities, which take place allegedly on the AREA 51, belong:
- Storage, investigation and Reverse engineering of fallen extraterrestial spaceships (among other things Material of the 1947 Roswell of fallen object), the investigation of the respective (dead or living persons) crews, and the production of airplanes, which are based on extraterrestial technology.
- Meeting and secret discussions with extraterrestrial ways of life.
- Development of exotic energy weapons (for the Strategic Defense initiative or other applications, like z. B. Weather control).
- Activities inConnection with the shade government of the world by the Illuminaten and other secret federations.
- Secret Filmstudios, in which the pictures are to have been turned by the Apollo landings on the moon (see moon-landing lie).
There are allegedly occupied statements, only for the purpose of investigations of the Alientechnologieand/or a large underground plant was built for the Aliens at the Groom Lake or at the close Papoose Lake. One of the most interesting reports is that former AREA 51 of the coworker and physicist Dr. Robert Lazar, in which it describes, there the drive of an extraterrestial spaceshipto have examined. There are actually some proofs for the fact that he actually worked on a classified military project.
The nearest civilian living place outside of the AREA 51 is the small Dörfchen Rachel, which became to UFO-lie thereby to the Pilgerziel for conspiracy theoreticians and. A small tavern there,the Little A'le'inn, with pictures from UFO sighting at the walls and a due pile to the topic of fitting reading material, loads travelers to the rest. Also meals and overnight accomodation are offered. Some visitors had there even their completely own meeting of the third kind, in the form of uncommonOptical phenomena along the Highways 375 running by the place, which is called „Extraterrestrial Highway meanwhile also official “. These features in most cases could be attributed however to fighter planes of the nearby Nellis AFB, which accomplished goal exercises along the Highways.
AREA 51 into that(fiktionalen) products of medium
the basis is due to its admitting heating degree a popular topic in the fiktionalen media.
film AREA 51 shown from „Vega 7 Entertainment the “ is one and a half-hour one documentation over the cousin and stories standing thereby in connection over the Aliens. This video was sent only in America by IMAX. It containsin addition the forbidden video of „Viktor “, a coworker at that time of the AREA 51. The documentation was published 1997 and explained 1998 for forbidden.
Also a consequence of star Trek: Deep space Nine is occupied with the basis and clarified over „protects “Identity of the Aliens landed there up. The film figures Ferengi quark, Rome and Nog are to have been cross-examined there in July 1947, after they had to make an emergency landing by an unintentional time jump with their spaceship.
The 45. Consequence of the indication trick series of Futurama carries „Roswell That Ends for the names waves “,acts of the UFO crash of Roswell and plays to a large extent into and around the area.
in the computer games UFO finds computer games the basis: Aftermath, AREA 51, Deus ex, Tomb Raider 3, Grand Theft car: San Andreas (under thatDesignation „AREA 69 “), Sim town center 4, in would help-run (under the designation „Black Mesa “) and in the X-Com - row. Besides is passable with Tony Hawk's pro Skater a fictitious Skatepark in the AREA 51. A mission with the console play Perfect Dark is concerned with thatInfiltration, espionage and the letztlichen rescue of an extraterrestial nature. The flight simulation Jane's USAF of 1999 made it possible to the player to start in Nellis and to fly over nearly the entire area of the Nellis rank, which was very close-to-reality represented by a land model covered with satellite photographs. ThoseBasis was to be seen in for instance the same quality as at NASA World wind. Besides there is a salt lake in the desert in the computer game Final Fantasy 8, in whose proximity Ufos can be sighted. Different running plays possess distances also at the roadside standing military flight and - vehicles,UFOs or the like, or distances also to the AREA 51 ajar names, under it:Mercedes Benz World Racing, would inter+do '82, Rollcage and Vigilante 8.
