It's old and well-known situation from October of 1994. Glenn Campbell is hiking up on Freedom Ridge and he is having a radio tuned to a Groom Lake's tower frequency. It is what he heard over the radio:

"CAMINO 48, TO EXPECT A VISUAL APPROACH TO RUNWAY 32R, THE WIND IS
CALM, ALTIMETER 3032, 36 DEGREES FOR NOW, PROCEED DIRECT TO
PYRAMID

CAMINO 04, SQUAWK 3031

WATCHDOG IS IN EFFECT, AT THIS TIME WE'RE LOOKING FOR APPROVAL TO
GET YOU IN

CAMINO 04, ROGER AH...IF YOU CAN MAINTAIN VFR RIGHT AROUND THE
FRENCHMAN FLATS AREA...WE ONLY HAVE [STAFF ?] TO REMAIN
OUTSIDE THE SIXTY SERIES

THERE'S A RED AND WHITE COMING IN BEHIND YOU

CAMINO 04...APPROACH APPROVAL HAS BEEN CANCELLED

JANET 305 CLEARED FOR A VISUAL APPROACH RUNWAY 32 RIGHT VIA
PYRAMID

CAMINO 04, NEED YOU TO WORK WEST A BIT [SO THAT YOU DON'T ?]
ENTER INTO RANGE 64

NEED YOU TO HOLD AROUND THE FRENCHMAN FLATS AREA...ARE YOU
FAMILIAR WITH THAT?

[CAMINO 04, APPROACH APPROVAL STILL WITHHELD] DUE TO THE FACT
THAT IT'S GLENN CAMPBELL AND HE HAS NOT DEPARTED THE AREA. HE IS
JUST DOWN THE HILL. WATCHDOG IS STILL IN EFFECT.

[SECOND VOICE] UNDERSTAND YOU ARE BRINGING THE CAMINOS IN NOW?

I'M GOING TO TALK TO THE D.O. AND THE S.O.F. AND TRY AND GET
APPROVAL FOR YOU TO DO PATTERN WORK AS LONG AS GLENN CAMPBELL IS
DOWN THE HILL

THAT'S AFFIRMATIVE [BECAUSE] HE'S NOW FAR ENOUGH DOWN THE HILL WHERE
THEY CAN'T SEE HIM

[THIRD VOICE] THAT WOULD BE GREAT, WE CAN...AH...KEEP OUR PATTERN
REAL LOW IF WE NEED TO

COPIED, STANDBY"
Quote from this web: www.ufomind.com...

Unfortunately, he didn't see anything classified that day but for sure it was very excitement and it's a great story.

Discuss...

Discuss what?

What is your take on it?

For what it's worth I find it interesting that they knew it was Glenn Campbell. Maybe he was wearing his Rhinestone cowboy outfit?

LOL!

I think it's a "different" Glenn Campbell...

No?



I think it isn't "odd" communication but, if it is...I would need someone to point it out...

I think they were delivering people to work...via the planes...

I'm sorry but I also don't know who 'this' particular version of Glenn Campbell is in relation to Area 51? Also don't the Janet flights always/only do crew ferrying flights?

Glenn Campbell's Page

He describes himself this way:

Author, Photographer, Full-Time Traveler, Former Area 51 Guy

He has a youtube page as well

Camino was one of the callsigns used by the F-117s. It could have been Nighthawks testing something.

Aaaahh ok,thanks for that.But how did Groom Lake ATC know that he was there as I'm guessing Freedom Ridge must be some distance away if on public land?

That area is closely monitored. The Air Force owns most if not all the land near Groom and has been pushing the borders back.

Well, I THINK...that Freedom Ridge was about 12 or so miles away...

Here's a link...

Tikiboo Peak

The military/government seized it in 1995...it used to have public access...from my understanding...


We never saw any secrect aircraft, but we did have the satisfaction
of preventing something secret from landing.

The following is a transcript of monitored Groom Lake Tower radio
traffic, as close as the journalist could decipher it. We are
mostly hearing only the tower side of the conversation, and there
may be significant periods of silence between transmissions.

So is Glenn that famous around Area 51 that the security guys can tell it's him from that distance amongst all the other visitors they get? And why is it necessary for ATC to name him specifically,is he considered more of a threat to security than any one else?

25 miles according to Google maps from Tikaboo peak to the base.

They know the people that follow the base closely and when they're in the area I'm sure.

History

Well, he is someone who spent many years researching and collecting data from the area.
Above is a history, he wrote, of his experiences.


Almost immediately upon visiting the area, I started working on a document, the Area 51 Viewer's Guide (still available from me). In it, I tried to collect all known information about the base and the surrounding area. I returned in December 1992 to collect more information for my guidebook, and when that proved insufficient, I drove my small RV to the nearby town of Rachel in January 1993. At this time, I was "retired" from my previous career as a computer programmer, and I had a modest nest egg to keep me going. I expected to stay in Rachel for a month, but it turned into 2-1/2 years!

He claims to have never found anything "alien" going on but, does believe it is a top secret base (obviously) and that interest had waned over the years.'

He doesn't appear to care for Bob Lazar's claims and is quick to explain why...

Just some more info for you...

The media took interest in area 51 after some of the Fox X files series episodes perked interest in the area.

New York times did an article on Glenn Campbell in June 1994 so he was well known.

www.familycourtchronicles.com...

Actually there were a number of movies, games and disclosure sources that could be tied to secret aircraft programs that year. Area 51, area 19, S4 etc. etc etc.

I think the Air and Space magazine was involved but I don't remember all the details.

The area had buried microwave transmitters (which are designed to look like bunches of desert grass). When someone walks through the area they create a disturbance in the field which alerts the authorities - Cammo dudes (Whackenhut Security) arriving in 3... 2... 1...

Oh I wouldn't doubt he heard MOST of that. The references to himself were a bit of "poetic license" me thinks.

Is there a recording of this? Did anyone else hear this?

"aviation journalist with a small tape recorder" - hmm.
