I live in Fairbanks!
That is a site that was constructed by "Kiewit" a few years ago. I know it well because of this thread I started a while back:
Odd-looking Military Aircraft in the Alaskan Wilderness
They had to actually construct an ice-road during the winter to get building materials to and from the site 30-some odd miles South of the Richardson
Highway (WOW!). They would've had no way of doing it through the tundra.
You can read a little more about how it was built on Kiewit's website. The site that's the subject of my thread is a few dozen miles SE of there
but I did talk about this "Giant Square" in my thread because of some very peculiar things I discovered about it.
It is known as "Blair Lakes Range Complex". It is located inside the Fort Wainwright Military Reservation although it is about 32 miles South of
Fort Wainwright's range facilities.
I am familiar with the area because I work at Fort Wainwright (civilian). We actually just worked on a project involving this very complex though I
won't say what we worked on because it's confidential.
Just like I talked about in my thread, this facility is much more than just a 1 mile x 1 mile "range" complex.
If you look at the NW part of the square in more detail you can see what look like a bunch of H's lined up. They consist of some very large poles
approximately 30-40 feet apart with nets in-between.
Leading to the nets are landing markers that extend out a couple hundred feet to the S/SE (Kind of hard to see in this image but there
Like I said in the other thread, these appear to be UAV recovery nets.
The bizarre aircraft I found nearby in google earth do not match the dimensions of anything else found in the U.S. inventory (that we know of). But
the dimensions of the aircraft are smaller than your standard fighter jet. Perhaps we caught a glimpse of some kind of UAV we weren't supposed to
Because of the work I do, what I can tell you is that I know that military facilities here in the Interior of Alaska are taking steps to ensure UAV's
have the infrastructure to operate unimpeded from the base's ordinary inbound/outbound traffic and in total secrecy. Unfortunately, I cannot tell
you how I know this or why because some aspects of the work are not only confidential but classified.
