youll make it about 30 miles around the base, then about 8 SAM sites will open up. Youll hear something like "you are entering restricted airspace please turn around." thats only if you get lucky. if your not lucky those sam sites with just shoot you down.
could it be that in the event no one has disregaurded the restricted airspace law, if there turn around an went back it might be alright.
it also may have been my sarcasm seeing uk buff didnt seem to research some info before searching

Not everyone knows where to look dalair, hence why he asked for help and info. You should do some research yourself. In July 1957 a gentleman by the name of Edward K. Current Jr. did make an emergency landing at groom lake. No he was not shot down by sams. Also do a search for military escort jets for groom lake in military publications and you will see lots of aircraft being escorted out of the airspace by a pair of jets over the years.
With that said, UK Alien Buff, if you were a pilot, you should have in your possession flight maps. Readily available to anyone that has 9 dollars and knows what part of the country they would like to have a map of. You would know exactly how to get there, what heading to fly and right where the restricted zone is. My suggestion, avoid the interrogation, possible suspension of your pilots license and the hours and hours of hassle by the lincoln county sheriffs, well known for "detaining" so called joy flyers and thrill seekers for days.

there was another guy who landed there during the HAVE BLUE program in 1978. He was refueled and sent on his way.
