Used to be nice out here in the great American Outback, to see aircraft flying low and slow, or high and fast, several times a week. Not to mention a
weekly or better sighting of something "unusual" at night. (Or even, rarely, broad daylight) But sadly, they have been keeping everything low key
the last decade or so.
A massive public demonstration, like Iran did with their missle threat, would seem a good thing---along with some "unexplained teasers".
I am still awaiting word on an "Americans only" tour I have been offered, if space and security allows, and if the program still exists post 9/11,
but as I post here, I am sure I have been blacklisted.
Time will tell.
Just recieved a survey from UNR about what I would expect of the local economy if the Tonopah Test Range closed or changed operation. Just by the
questions asked, it appears to be in the works. It won't affect me in the slightest, but it will be a death blow to Tonopah, even though it is
already in the throes of it now, as hardly anyone works there from the local population. Sandia will still operate, and even posts for applications a
couple times a year, but like Groom, the vast majority fly in from Vegas.
Nellis is massive, and a demonstration of that amount of war gaming would do no harm, IMHO, of course.
