Some good closeups shots of the Tonopah Test Range, revealing that those "Mystery Objects" look like fuel trucks.

ETA: back now. Hmmm...

You could be right... those fuel tanks could be Tic Tac's. : P

Great pics!

I own a book by by Mack Malone who one of his sources apparently said 'when something leaves the Tonapah test range, something new is moving in.'

Has area 51 had something cooking or is it a load of hot air?

Those are damned good photographs. Somebody is in trouble.

Pics loaded for me ok.

I'm really surprised they would allow civilian aircraft that close?

Fuel trucks for armored personnel carriers?
They might be doing desert ground training operations out there these days.
No chance of an A12 lifting off and being mistaken for a flying saucer with that lens.

Great pics.
What I find interesting is the lack of aircraft at this base.
That nothing is sitting out speaks volumes.

They're not that close. They've got a really good lens attached. I was able to get decent pics of the base with a 300mm from 14ish miles. Not great, but decent. My 600mm should get really good ones.

It's for flight testing. Everything is hangared when not flying.

Coupled with cooler times so we don't have to deal with heat rippling

Yeah. It doesn't take long after the sun comes up for the heat haze to start. It'll be nice to get there when it's cooler.

Interesting, I would’ve thought that would’ve been heavily restricted airspace even where they were.

Your 600mm must take some nice pics. Are you planning another pic trip there? Would like to see those pics if you do

We're working out the logistics. I haven't tried taking shots of buildings from long range, but I've been able to identify the tail flash on a KC-135 passing overhead at 35,000 feet through it.

Looking at the EXIF data, they were taken with a Nikon 3500 with a 300 mm lens.

AFAIK, commercial and private aircraft are allowed to cut through TTR airspace on weekends. Same with the MOA's on the east side of the NTTR. Assuming they get controller clearance.
