La Verkin, UT -- Google Maps
This is an underground facility built inside a mesa. Millions of people drive by it every year because it is next to the road/highway that leads to the main entrance of Zion National Forest.
One time my friends and I saw a flight of 3 Apache choppers (non-Longbow types) fly towards this Proving Grounds.
Also, my friend is a helicopter pilot who decided to fly near this restricted airspace. On top of the mesa, there is this portapotty. My friend swears he saw 4 Air Force personnel in uniform come out of the portapotty. Either there is an underground base in the mesa. Or, that is mesa should be called Brokeback Mesa. Luckily, my friend quickly flew away when the 4 Air Force personnel pointed at his chopper.
Does any one know the name of this facility and what is going on in it? The local people say this facility was the testing area for ejection seats.
