There is a lot of debate as to what Groom Lake really is: Area 51 as it is known is often labelled as a "UFO testing center". In a sense this is
true; they test top secret bombers or rather...they test bombers and fighters but don't want anyone to know the weapons they are testing. So in that
sense the planes may not be so secret as the weapons systems. It probably is both.
I intend to not only hypothesise this but prove it.
All images are North-Up.
The preceeding image is the guide-lights "structure" for the Groom Lake airport facility. Notice the guide-lights' curvature which suggests the
flight path of a returning plane. I suggest this pattern follows that the planes take off to the North West and make a bombing run to the South West
then return from the South East following the guide lines to land on the strip in the opposite direction of take off. Notice that the approach
(follow the leads of the guide lights) for the landing is to a different runway than the runway with a "run-off extension" which the extension of
the runway denotes the take-off direction...in case of a failed take off there's a flat and safe surface to stop on.
When I reveal the picture of Lambs Pond in relation to Groom Lake you'll see this flight path works.
The following is an image of the Area 51 Runway.
The following image is Groom Lake lower right and Lambs Pond middle left: notice their relation to eachother.
The following image is the Lambs Pond target complex; there are three items of interest, the Target facility, the Airport target facilities, and the
complex target facility.
The following image is the Lambs Pond Target facility at a large scale:
The following image is the Lambs Pond Target facility at a smaller scale:
The Airport Target facility large scale:
And the Airport's specific targets:
And finally the complex target facility:
The nature of the Airport I believe is significant. It is structured or modeled after Soviet and consequently North Korean Airport defensive
structures. The ramparted enclosers; particularly those in the circlular formation; are anti-aircraft gun and artillery emplacements and/or aircraft
shelters which are very common both in Russia and in North Korea.
A view of the North Korean airbase at Kaech'on proves this.
The proximity of the target base to Area 51; and their geographic orientations to eachother suggests a relationship.
Their close proximity suggests that the Area 51 base is not an aircraft testing facility but a weapons testing facility.
This is important; because most people; even skeptics of the UFO theory; do not doubt it is a plane testing facility. But the Area 51 complex is not
built to specifically test planes as it lacks a range similar to that of Edwards AFB which does publically test fighters and other military
A weapons testing facility would be far more secretive of an operation for the US; especially if the weapons to be tested were guided bombs, or
Weapons of Mass Destruction to be used in tactical situations such as the elimination of an airport; or a hardened facility (which is what the Lambs
Pond Target circle would imply; since extreme accuracy is needed to destroy a hardened facility).
