Very interesting video... SnF.
Just goes to show what a motivated person or two can do to uncover what is hidden in plain sight.
Thanks for posting...

You can get FAA records from some of the rendition aircraft at the link above.
The CALP (civil aviation landing permit) document used to be on a DoD website. I doubt the CIA knew about it else they would have screamed bloody murder. It now has FOUO status.
Also unknown to the CIA was that the FAA began selling flight data to companies that wanted to create tracking websites. Today the most famous is Flight Radar 24. But back in the day, there was a company called Red One Aviation. They listed all the domestic legs of the CIA flights. The company eventually got shut down and a procedure was established to allow planes to opt out of the tracking.
The tanker used for special projects at Groom Lake flies out of Travis AFB. The callsign is Sierra 99. I've only "seen" it as a KC-10.
Trevor mentioned the Blue Cube. It was recently torn down. It would be an interesting project to find out if there was anything underground there. I was in a few of the rooms in the Blue Cube. The doors were like meat lockers with push button locks. Everything I saw was really old. We're talking Nixie tube clocks. This was maybe 1990, so Nixie tube had already been out of style for 20 years.
Somewhere in the early 2000s they decided to hold an electronics swap meet in the Lockheed parking lot behind the Blue Cube. People were told not to photograph the facility, but seriously, you invite a hoard of geeks to meet next to a USAF satellite down link site and expect nobody to take a photo? I saw two guys get snagged by security for taking a photo. The funny thing is you could take photos from across the street and even then, it is just a building.
I flew over the KNUQ in a helicopter and made damn sure to get a photo of the Blue Cube, even if there is nothing to see.
