I still think it's a good idea and worth a shot. If you had a few expendable bucks, some time to kill, and a little RC skill, my guess is you might
be able to fly in low-and-slow, especially if you start on the southwest access road and head straight to the S-4 hangers on the east edge of Papoose
Dry Lake, bypassing the main facilities (and normal air traffic) on Groom Lake.
Assemble and launch your craft with no trace markings (including prints, etc), have an alibi and escape plan ready (ditch the controllers, etc), and
you can probably minimize association.
Sure, there's a good chance you're little bug will get swatted down, and you should be more or less prepared to sacrifice your bird - not to mention
that hardly anything happens on the surface anyway so you're not likely to see much.
Nevertheless, a deep pockets type with a bit of bravado, moxie, and some huevos mixed in with a hobbyist-adventurist spirit might, just might, be able
to pull it off.
Even a very slight chance of capturing some close-in video would be worth a great deal - bragging rights if nothing else...
I'd love to see a video snagged in this way...
When you've concluded this "mission:almost impossible", W1, post it here for some major accolades and points. Or sell it to the highest bidder.
Earthfiles and UFOArea, and many other sites I'm sure would love to get their hands on such footage - perhaps for a princely sum!
