Although, most people think that underground bases house all sorts of secrets when really most are made because military sites are far more likely to
get hit in a war and therefore are slightly more safer underground.
I've not aware of any underground bases in the area, though on a Maintenance check flight for one on the MH-53J's I was riding on, I did see a set
of railroad tracks that entered the side of a sand dune. There was nothing else in the area to indicate any kind of activity in the area. i.e no
roads, building, etc.
On the other side of the world, I was surprised to find out that there's a large underground facility located within the area of the military side of
the Kuwait International Airport. A coworker had a friend who had access and he arranged for us to go into it. I don't know the full size of it,
but there was a hallway wide enough to allow two vehicles to pass side by side and several rooms. We went into a room being used for weapon and
ammuntion storage. I have pictures of me holding several of them somewhere.
Again, I wish Google Earth would have been around then so I could have located it. After 16 years, things have changed and I can't be sure of where
the nevada base or Kuwaits underground entrances were located for sure, but I do think I have found the Nevada location where I was. Several of the
landmarks fit the memories.
The only other exciting thing about my Nevada TDY was seeing a POW camp out in the desert and riding in the PAVE LOW III at 200' below sealevel
