THE TONOPAH TEST RANGE The Tonopah Test Range (TTR) is a 625 square mile area located at the very north end of the Nellis Complex, about 32 miles southeast of Tonopah, Nevada. The primary entrance is off of Highway 6 at the north end of the facility. Dirt road access points also exist on the south and east sides of the range. First opened in 1957, it has been a major test facility for DOE funded weapon programs. The facility is heavily instrumented with camera and radar tracking devices that record data from artillery shell testing, bomb drops, cruise missiles and rocket tests. In 1984, TTR also became host to the first F117 Stealth fighter squadron. Another facility located in TTR is the Tolicha Peak Electronic Combat Range. Tonopah Test Range also contains the somewhat mysterious Site Four, located near its eastern boundary. What facility would be complete without a recreation facility, check out Base Camp. Travelling to and from Tonopah is provided by the Cheshire Airstrip.

TONOPAH TEST RANGE

The Tonopah Test Range (TTR) is a 625 square mile area located
at the very north end of the Nellis Complex, about 32 miles southeast
of Tonopah, Nevada. The primary entrance is off of Highway 6 at
the north end of the facility. Dirt road access points also exist
on the south and east sides of the range.
First opened in 1957, it has been a major test facility for DOE
funded weapon programs. The facility is heavily instrumented with
camera and radar tracking devices that record data from artillery
shell testing, bomb drops, cruise missiles and rocket tests. In
1984, TTR also became host to the first F117 Stealth fighter squadron.
Another facility located in TTR is the Tolicha Peak Electronic
Combat Range. Tonopah Test Range also contains the somewhat mysterious
Site Four, located near its eastern boundary. What facility would
be complete without a recreation facility, check out Base Camp.

HOLD ON!! Tonopah was the base for the F-117 Nighthawk. How did it become affiliated with the Cheshire Airstrip? TTR is in Area 30 and the Cheshire Airstrip is supposed to be in Area 19. Let's check our sources, I could be wrong, but I have a feeling this is a mistake.
