There are so many stories about Area 51 that we will never know the truth, and maybe that is for the best.
I think the pilot you mentioned earlier is Tony LeVier, a Lockheed test pilot in the 50's assigned to project AQUATONE (U-2 spy plane).
Originally From ATS Main Site
Tony LeVier, Lockheed's test pilot assigned to test-fly the U-2 spyplane, claims the credit for recognizing Groom Dry Lake as a suitable test site.
The CIA gave U-2 designer Kelly Johnson the task of choosing and building a secure test site. In March 1955, Johnson sent LeVier and Skunk Works
foreman Dorsey Kammerer to visit potential test sites in the deserts of southern California, Nevada, and Arizona. After two weeks, LeVier presented
Johnson with his impressions, and Johnson chose Groom Lake.
Levier may deny the claims that their are aliens at Groom Lake but how would he know if there is/was?
Levier was merely chosen to test the U-2 and found an amazing piece of the Nevada desert in which to do so. I imagine his stay at Area 51 was pretty
short lived, and after he left the US government used the facility for many things other than the testing of aircraft.
I think the only reason that the stories of aliens came about was because of Bob Lazaar, and most people are very skeptical about Mr Lazaar's
If what Lazaar says is true then it is guaranteed that there is aliens (or at least alien craft) at Area 51, but if he is lying.....well then thats
just another massive blow to the people that truly believe the US government are hiding little grey men in the most secretive and talked about base on
