Yes, it is the DAF. It is pronounced daf, as in Daffy Duck. ;-) It is pointed out on the NTS tour, but you certainly don't get to see it.
I should reiterate that a good procedure before starting a thread on Google Earth would be to enable the Google Earth Community, read the comments, do
an internet search on what was posted, and confirm or deny the validity of the Google Earth Community.
I can tell you that most of the NTS nuke test locations posted from Google Earth Community are wrong. In fact, many are not even on the test site, and
the tests that were off the site are well documented. I have asked the guy in charge to remove the data, but as they say, the internet is the wild
wild west. All you can really do is point out the data is wrong and hope that the other person has the intelligence to see your point and comply.
Note that the NTS has a "reading room" in Las Vegas. Over the years, the reading room has been moved more than a MX missile. It is presently at the
Atomic Museum in Las Vegas. There are people there that have all the answers, and when they can't answer, they say so. I never got any BS there,
though I had been given the run around regarding the new Yucca Lake runway. It was a lot more fun before they moved the reading room since I always
had the place to myself whenever I visited. All those movie you find on the NTS website can be viewed in the reading room. I've watched most of the
Broken Arrow videos and those on the TTR.
Back to those videos at the reading room, note that they are sanitized. Even though you can find the critical mass for nuclear weapons in books and
all over the net (often correct too), they won't reveal such data on the videos. If you watch "Yuba City Broken Arrow", you can see a 3 star
general pick his nose. ;-) I guess they didn't see the need to sanitize that!
