This file, from the US National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), was recently obtained under the FOIA. It contains admissions about NRO presence at "RAF" Menwith Hill (UK) and Pine Gap (Australia) as well as three ground station locations within the United States.
In what the government describes as a bizarre coincidence, NRO was planning an exercise [on] Sept. 11  in which an errant aircraft would crash into one of its buildings. But the cause wasn't terrorism – it was to be a simulated accident.
Officials at the Chantilly, Va.-based National Reconnaissance Office had scheduled an exercise that morning in which a small corporate jet would crash into one of the four towers at the agency's headquarters building after experiencing a mechanical failure.
The agency is about four miles from the runways of Washington Dulles International Airport. ... Adding to the coincidence, American Airlines Flight 77 – the Boeing 757 that was hijacked and crashed into the Pentagon – took off from Dulles at 8:10 a.m. on Sept. 11, 50 minutes before the exercise was to begin. It struck the Pentagon around 9:40 a.m., killing 64 aboard the plane and 125 on the ground. wiki
