I was stationed at China Lake with VX-9. I always thought there was a secret base. They have a secret hanger which noone had access to. There is also civilian aircraft which noone knows about. Everyone speculated but noone had any hard evidence. Lots of really secret things went on there. Signs on base state, "What you see here, what you do here, stays here". Something along those lines anyway.

Well, this is NOT a huge underground base nor is it overly secret, but I did see something very odd today. I went shopping and at a local LOWE's in Exeter Twp Pa, they're doing underground construction. They've had problems with sinkholes in that part of the parking lot, as well as farther up in front of a Staples. They had a big crane and the area was fenced off with signs blocking the view of the work being done. I parked and was curious so I walked over to where the fence was and looked over. There were pre cast concrete bunkers down there, maybe 8 feet wide by ten feet long by 8 feet high. There was at least a dozen of them and they were being pushed together and one workman was sealing those that had been joined. Next to them was a storm drain that went underground but didn't appear to connect to them. I thought maybe they were reinforcing the parking lot and there were plans to put another store out in what is a big parking lot. MAYBE that's what they're going to do, or maybe somehow these underground bunkers are going to be used for other purposes. A secret storehouse right out in plain sight underground. I'm no engineer but would these bunkers actually prevent sinkholes?

Re: the "squiggly lines" in the desert at 36°12'19.92"N 117°33'20.45"W. That is a shooting range. On the left (look at the shadows) are angled concrete block walls about 8' high with window cutouts. To the right are pop-up targets (those black specks on the ground with dirt bermed up at their bases), and farther to the right are panels set at angles to hang targets on. Farther to the right is a large, high berm to stop the rounds from bouncing across the desert for a mile or so.
