Astronauts and Area 51: the Skylab Incident
by Dwayne A. Day
Monday, January 9, 2006

Far out in the Nevada desert, miles from prying eyes, is a secret Air Force facility that has been known by numerous names over the years. It has been called Paradise Ranch, Watertown Strip, Area 51, Dreamland, and Groom Lake. Groom is probably the most mythologized real location that few people have ever seen. According to people with overactive imaginations, it is where the United States government keeps dead aliens, clones them, and reverse-engineers their spacecraft. It is also where NASA filmed the faked Moon landings.

(Not the whole article, first paragraph of the introductory)

This is an interesting article which depicts Area 51 as a Military aircraft testing facility, rather than some pseudo-ufo place. Different take on the story.
Good article because it shows everyone's point of view. Also mentions a location called "Deuce" maybe related to the Dulce bases? Who knows.

What do you guys think?

"Deuce" is a nickname for the Lockheed U-2, sometimes called the "U-Deuce" or "Useless Deuce."

In the Skylab article the author, Dwayne Day, quotes a memo from John McMahon, executive officer of the CIA's Development Plans Division, which refers to photographic "coverage from the Deuce."

Day clearly identifies the Deuce in this case as the U-2, as noted in brackets in the quoted passage.
