Area 51

A military base owned by the US Department of Defense founded in 1955 that was not confirmed to exist for over 50 years, operating as a black site with projects from the US Air Force and the CIA, even though the media have been reporting on it since the infamous Roswell incident. Although much coverage only questions if there are "aliens" there, the confirmed US Air Force black projects go largely unquestioned.

Homey Airport, commonly known as Area 51 or "Groom Lake", is a part of the Edwards Air Force Base[1], a base near the remote US town of Rachel in the state of Nevada. Following an intense campaign of secrecy by the US government and a string of incidents (UFO sightings and a crash better known as the Roswell incident, Area 51 has become iconic and instantly named when corporate media starts TV-segments about "aliens", "UFOs" & other alleged cover-ups by the US government[2]. The base is secured by guards of engineering firm AECOM.[3]

Official narrative

According to historian Dwayne A. Day "the CIA considered no other spot on Earth to be as sensitive as Groom Lake". Area 51 has never been declared a secret base, but all research is per CIA guidelines. The Central Intelligence Agency publicly acknowledged the existence of the base for the first time in 2013, following a FOIA request filed in 2005 and a declassified overview of the history and purpose of Area 51.[4]

The place is steeped in history with UFO sightings (stimulated by spooks such as Ulius Amoss[5] and W. Stuart Symington[6]) that has caused virtually all theories regarding the need for such secrecy to be just "conspiracy theories", even absorbing most discussions about actually confirmed abuses of power by power structures since the 1950s, perhaps an example of a psychological operation and/or official opposition narrative.

Security Measures

The area surrounding the lake is off-limits, permanently, to civilian and normal military air traffic, with very strict security clearances. Cameras and weapons aren't allowed. Military pilots face "heavy sanctions" upon entering the airspace without proper reason, and the only airliner to operate in the area is named "Janet", to primarily transport military personnel. Apart from the lake, the base is banned for domestic publication in nearly all aviation documents and maps.

Terrain

Placed in the desert near Las Vegas, operations at Groom Lake have only continued even after intense media coverage. The base and its associated runway system have been expanded, including the expansion of housing and support facilities. In 1995, the federal government expanded the exclusionary area around the base to include nearby mountains, prohibiting access to 3,972 acres or 16.07 km2 of land administered by the Bureau of Land Management, even taking the land of families for "national security". .[7][8]

Projects

The CIA established the Groom Lake test facility in April 1955 for Project AQUATONE, the development of the Lockheed U-2 strategic reconnaissance aircraft. Project OXCART was established in August 1959 for "antiradar studies, aerodynamic structural tests, and engineering designs" and all later work on the Lockheed A-12, The CIA also ordered the D-21 Tagboard from Lockheed. The Lockheed Have Blue prototype stealth fighter (a smaller proof-of-concept model of the F-117 Nighthawk) first flew at Groom in December 1977.

Other projects include the HAVE DOUGHNUT, HAVE DRILL, and HAVE FERRY programs aimed at Cold War air combat.

In the 2010s several websites hosted by US military-veterans accused the US Air Force black projects developed in Nevada as responsible for the "black triangle planes" sighted in the US. The spotted triangles would belong to the "TR-3B Aurora Anti-Gravity Spacecraft".[9][10]

Concerns

Origins

Some projects - like UFOs - could be from a non-human origin. As modern science hasn't[11] ruled out foreign intelligent lifeforms to exist - formerly only a stance of "conspiracy theorists", a study by the University of Oxford in 2018 concluded with a 66% chance of aliens to exist, which places questions if these black projects sighted around the base are merely an undisclosed black budget project.[12] The US government acknowledged in 2020 their failure to identify some objects flying around the base and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, but failed to disclose information on what they thought was the origin of these objects.[13]

"It doesn't exist officially. It uses highly pressured mercury accelerated by nuclear energy to produce a plasma that creates a field of anti-gravity around the ship. Conventional thrusters located at the tips of the craft allow it to perform all manner of rapid high-speed maneuvers along all three axes. Interestingly, the plasma generated also reduces radar signature significantly. So it'll be almost invisible on radar & remain undetected. This literally means that it can go to any country it likes without being detected by air traffic control & air defense systems." [14]

Unknown deadly work-materials

In 1994, five unnamed civilian contractors and the widows of contractors Walter Kasza and Robert Frost sued the Air Force and the United States Environmental Protection Agency. They alleged that they had been present when large quantities of unknown chemicals had been burned in open pits and trenches at Groom Lake.[15] The men reported deaths and claimed the USAF didn't disclose what the chemicals they were actually working with were.

The government invoked the State Secrets Privilege to disallow disclosure of classified documents or examination of secret witnesses. After that being ruled unlawful, President Bill Clinton issued a Presidential Determination exempting what it called "the Air Force's Operating Location Near Groom Lake, Nevada" from environmental disclosure laws. The lawsuit was dropped for a lack of evidence. Every US president has continued this cover-up of workforce malpractice with these special executive directives.[16]

BBC Investigation

In 2012, a BBC crew who attempted to walk past security "watching TV" and enter the base was held a gunpoint, detained for 12 hours, while the FBI took their equipment, told the crew "that this incident was so serious that Washington had to call London to advise that 12 'Brits' had just breached security at America's most top-secret military base and that we all were at one point going to jail for six months", and that they escaped the punishment named "make you disappear and your body will never be found"[17], being tailed by FBI for the remainder of their stay in the US, raising questions what is happening there.

George Carlin“To my way of thinking, there is every bit as much evidence for the existence of UFOs as there is for the existence of God. Probably far more. At least in the case of UFOs there have been countless taped and filmed—and, by the way, unexplained—sightings from all over the world, along with documented radar evidence seen by experienced military and civilian radar operators.”George Carlin
