You all want it, You got it! I am Publishing the Main finding of the Area 51/ Groom Lake Research Project. The truth is the truth, sorry if anyone is
disappointed. All of the Info Here comes directly from the Research fourm Sources included.
What Aircraft are/ were at the base:
The U-2 was tested when Area 51 was still a bunch of tents and Quonset huts. Flying at 70,000 feet, the U-2 overflew the USSR with impunity for years
until one was shot down in 1960. Until they were painted black in the sixties, a fair percentage of UFO sightings were actually reflections from the
silver bodied U-2 reconnaissance plane.
Only four prototypes of the Mach 2.5 CL-400 or Suntan were ever built. This successor to the U-2 was to be powered by liquid hydrogen but it was
deemed too costly to create an infrastructure for refueling around the world. The program was cancelled in the late fifties.
The true successor to the U-2, the mach 3 SR-71 flies at 90,000 feet, uses 8,000 gallons of fuel per hour and has outrun countless SAMs. Built of
titanium, the SR-71's surface temperature reaches 3,000 degrees during flight. Deactivated in 1990, the program has recently been revived, some
believe because of problems with the Aurora.
Code named Senior Trend and known as the Hopeless Diamond, the F-117 Stealth Fighter was designed in the late seventies. So stealthy, aircrews
sometimes find dead bats whose own sonar is so confused by the signal return from the F-117 that they crash into parked craft. The hero of the Gulf
war, the Stealth Fighter is still tasked to take out the toughest targets and is only now becoming vulnerable to enemy radar.
Origionally Code Named Senior Ice, the B-2 was the First stealth plane design for the strategic mission and the first tested for it's ability to
carry nuclear weapons. during the B-2 Antigravity research project, we found proof that the B-2 test fleet was at Groom Lake from some time in the
early to Mid '80's untill it was unveiled and "Officially" flowen for the first time in 1989-1990. Here is the proof:
B-2 at Groom Lake
If you go down to the section on Black Aircraft the B-2 is the second one listed, right under the F-117. I incourage you to look at it if you get a
chance. It says the B-2 was at Groom Lake untill it was brought out of the black world in 1988-89
Soviet Migs: Have Drill and Have Doughnut are code names for the Mig 21 and Mig 23 respectivly.
TR-3A Black Manta: TR-3
Here the Origion of the Name DREAMLAND: Dreamland
The NSA Link to Groom Lake:
First of all, USAF and DoD records we found on the B-2 Research project contradict Ben Rich's clames about his ATB design being stealthier. Second,
the Flying Wing is known to be a tricky design to work with(the B-2 is based on Research that Northrop has been doing continiously since the late
1920's). The Buget dent was hidden by splitting the costs with the USAF, so they only payed for 1/2 of it.
READ THE NEXT SECTION CAREFULLY, IT WILL ANSWER ALL OF YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW THE PLANE IS OPERATED!
Now as for your question about why the NSA would Need a plane for this when they always use the USAF and the Navy for this in the past. The NSA works
very differently then the CIA. The National Security Agency has a sub-orgnization called the Central Security Service(CSS). The CSS is made up
military personell that also work in the armed forces. The Four units of the CSS are: Air Force Security Service, Army Security Agency, Naval Security
Group, and Marine Security Detatchment. Through the CSS the NSA shares its buget, it's assets and its techincal experties with the four branches of
the military. NOW HERE'S THE TRICK THAT MAKES IT WORK: In exchange for shairing it's buget and Technical Experties, The NSA get's priority tasking
and partial mission control rights. This means the that while the Air Force owns the plane on the records, The NSA gets a say in it's use and first
dips at any intelligences it collects. The Air Force owns and operates the plane, But any Intelligence that it collects is sent straight the NSA
Headquaters in real-time via. SATCOM link. The NSA then shares it with the USAF as soon as the data is processed. This is also how the RC-135V/W Rivet
Joint and RC-135S Cobra Ball spyplanes are used. This means the only facilities they need for the TR-3 out at Groom Lake are hangers, maintainence and
fule, runways and crew support (All of which the base has had since it was built). Since nothing is processed at Groom Lake, they don't need huge
antannas or satallite dishes. You're right, it is technically an Air Force aircraft, but The NSA has a major say in when, where and how the TR-3 is
Quote from FredT:
Major Player at Groom Lake
Item #3 of the Directors responsabilities include: Inthe case of mobile military SIGINT platforms, he shall state movement requirements through
appropriate channels to the military commanders who shall retain responsability for oeprational command of the vehicles.
United States Department of Defense: Groom Lake is a joint use facility that is used for many defense and national security related activites. Because
of its joint use, it is officially owned by the Department of Defense (this is why it is Not listed as an Airforce Base). Being a Defense Department
OWENED base, means Groom Lake is open for Use by anyone within the defense establishment who needs to use it for "Black Projects" at any time. While
the Base commander is military, the Base also has a permanent civilian represenitive who reports directly to the Penagon. Who this DoD Rep. is, is not
US Air Force: The Air Force seems to be the primary user/tenet at the base right now. The base commander is a USAF officer (Probably a General). The
air force operates many of the Test aircraft at the base as well as some highly classified spy planes. We are not 100% positive but think these may
include the Aroura, and the TR-3. they also are working on other classified weapon systems. The USAF also owns and Runs "Big Safari", a secret Group
that provides a variety of support services for Classified programs of all kinds. Since Groom Lake is a secret base, Big Safari provides the base and
it's occupents with a variety of specialized support services.
Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA): The pentagon's "Think Tank", DARPA is a civilian agency made up mostly of Top Grade scientist
and engineers. DARPA's mission is to apply cutting edge science and technology to the development of new weapon systems and support systems that can
be used to aid in the achievement of National security goals and objectives. Some of the technologies they have help develop include: UAV's, Stealth
Technology, Smart Weapons, Global Positioning System (GPS) and Laser Weapons (SDI A.K.A. Star Wars).
Central Intelligencs Agency (CIA): The Base was first built for the CIA. Today however, the Agency seems to play a much smaller secondary support
role. They still are working on some UAV related development out at the base. (Note: We have found several "contractors" at the base such as EG&G,
and Carley Group that Appear to Be CIA "Fronts"! We aren't sure exatly what these "CIA Fronts" are up to!)
National Security Agency (NSA): The NSA most likely serves two roles at the base, although our group only looked into and research one of them. First,
the NSA Provides Tech. support for USAF SIGINT/ELINT Aircraft at the base, as well as controlling their mission. Second, Even though we didn't really
look into it, The NSA almost certainly provides INFOSEC and COMSEC services to support operations at the Base. (Note: The NSA has listing of a
possible Top Secret SCI Project at Area 51, but we opted not to explore it as part of this research effort!) There were also NSA ties to UAV
OK you have it! These are the Hard facts on Groom Lake. No BS, No Speculation, No Wild Roumors! The data above was carfully gathered, compiled, and
analysed by a team of ATS Researchers: Ghost (me), FredT, Infinite, machinegunjordan, DeltaNine and Muzz. We worked on this research from July 14,
2004 to September 10, 2004.
Now you Know the truth about Groom Lake and Area 51. You Know where I get my Info from and how I draw the conclusion that I come up with! To see the
details of all the above data check out:

There Are the FACTS! Maybe we can let go of the roumors and the myths now!
