You can kind of tell how bid the base is by looking at a map and see the highlighted area that says military reservation. But as far as underground stuf, Who knows but the people that work there. There is probably some underground stuff but the only way to be sure is to visit there. And join the walk that one jackass is planning to infiltrate the base (just kidding) who know your guess is as good as mine. but if you ever get any solid schematics please post it. Good topic by the way.

While I was in vegas I
applied for a security job there. Wish I would have got it I would still be there the pay is great. Also while I was there they were taking the senior citizens in my mother's mobile home park for a tour of area 51 but she could not go at the time. I wish she would have went but oh well. The place is huge if you look at the map. One of the thing's on the application was that you could not be afraid of flying because you could have to be flew to your post out on the outskirts of the base.

How did you apply for a security job in vegas? with the private contractor that provides support to the base?

Also what do you mean by a tour of A51??? Do you just mean a tour of the surrounding area?

The base per se, the core part of it is only about a mile from end to end, from the south bank of hangars constructed for the CIA A-12 program to the northern set which are often called the "Red Hat" hangars. The only operational runway is only 11 thousand feet long give or take. There are associated facilities to the north of Groom such as Slater Lake, which has a number of Russian radar systems which new stealth aircraft are tested against. There's also a large facility on top of Bald Mountain in the Groom range which has a couple rather large domed antennae. To the south there's a radio facility on Papoose mountain which presumably relays flight test radio traffic to the facility while the tests are over the Nellis ranges. Over near TTR there's a larger threat facility called S-4, NOT the Lazar so called S-4 but another electronic test range, also in that area is the Tolicha Peak electronic test range which develops and tests new domestic systems against their foreign counterparts. All this in the Nellis range which is roughly the size of Switzerland. It's a lot of nothing out there with scattered training airspaces, bomb ranges and test facilities. Not to mention the radioactive dust pile called the NTS, just over the mountains from Groom. Bad enough they burned their own toxic wastes at Groom when they enjoy the quaint pleasures of gamma radiation every day.

ok, first off, there is now way that it is bigger than some states. it might go down really deep, but there is no way in hell that its bigger than some states. second off, there kind of has been a disaster. the people that operated the facility at the time were disposing nuclear waste by digging big pits and throwing the waste in and burning it. it is illegal, and it was in essence a disaster becuase you had people getting sick and dying from radiation poisoning. and the government didnt even tell the family members how they died. is that screwed up or what? i guess tahts the price you pay for working for the government.
