Happy hunting. Note they cut this really close to the north edge of the runway, as if someone ordered this imagery and Google poached it.

Tonopah is the Area 51 site.



These look like the White Sand targets I've fired at. (above)

The only things missing are the "commercial gravel pits."
That is how the mining tailings are covered up.

The Tonopah Test Range is Area 52 or Area 54, depending on which map you use.

Posted a thread on this here

Looks like something (maybe F-117 or something else) being moved into a hangar

I would presume since available imagery would show large amounts of "Muck" which is the technical term for the rock left over (Tailings are actually something else) they would eat the cost associated with trucking it elsewhere or using previously excavated areas on site. Rumors persist that the proposed underground, mobile, MX system was mocked up and extensive tunnels were dug in and around the NTS and Nellis etc. which could also be used for storing the muck.

Otherwise a giant pile of the stuff would be a dead giveaway that something was underground.

Edit: The whole Nellis Range has seen alot of construction in the past 20 years, its also conceivable that the muck generated was then recycled as aggregate for all the concrete needed.

That hangar isn't in the group being used for flyable F-117 aircraft. Not that it matters I suppose. But whatever that stuff is, it certainly isn't very big.

The only other planes officially said to be at the TTR is/are Long EZ for UAV simulators.

The RQ 170 is also supposed to be based here when not deployed

Just about everyone testing a UAV is out there at one point or another. We got some good shots of some base aircraft I didn't know were there.

Is that really a real car park? Its just the colours dont seem right, no reds, blues etc, just white and dark. There are red, green and blue cars at Groom Lake. I would think TTR probably looks nothing in real life like it does on google maps. Looking on google, there also seems to be a lot less photos of TTR than Groom.

There are a lot of cars parked at TTR. We see all colors of them driving around when we watch the base.

In theory, no personal vehicles at the TTR. However I know for a fact personal vehicles went through the back gate for Groom Lake. A selling point would be genuine Groom Lake dust in the wheel wells.

When you watch the TTR, most vehicle are white. There are a number of civilian cars parked outside the boundary of the TTR. And of course there is the bowling alley pick up spot.
