What is the name of this airport? I've zoomed in with Google Earth, and the buildings are not actual buildings, but rather ridges:
Also, notice that the runway, and the structures around it are made of what seems to be dirt.

I just checked out these coordinates on Google Earth. If you pan just a little to the north you'll find a big bullseye with alot of bomb craters in a dry white lakebed.
These features are all part of a practice bombing range.
I found another one that's very strange. It has some very strange shapes and designs. It contains a 1.5 mile straight path. Anyone have any idea where/what this place is?

The lat/long has it a few miles northwest of the Sandia base in Gold Flats but it sure looks exactly like the one 2 or 3 miles west of Tolicha. Haven't been up that way in long time though. As soon as I find my range chart I'll tell you what range it is in.

The berms shaped like revetments are to simulate hardened aircraft hangers. All the pilot needs is the general shape to target, hence the outline.
Do we really need to be reminded that from what we think we know about UFO's- they don't need a landing strip? Verticle take off ring a bell? Why are we looking for 1.5 mile strips of land in the desert? Sorry if I sound snooty I'm working on this tone thing...
