This is for anyone who is familiar with HILL AFB, UT.

Backround:

The link I am posting is a view of a parking lot adjacent to perimiter road. Eeverytime I drove by this parking lot I always wondered why there was a building built into the side of the hill. The hill if you zoom out is a golf course.
I have seen this entrance many many times but to be honest never paid attention to it.

Anyone?????

Is this a trick question?

An empty thread?

let me add the golf course goes up on a hill and is raised high enough to see the flight line

Looks like an underground home.
But did you see the fake C-130 at 41 07’07.75N 111 58’25.57”W

seems a little odd to put a building into the side a hill doesnt it?

Yes think it would be rather more costly to do that. But then I have heard of such things. I was really wanting more of the picture to show up there. Seems there is a rather cool sunroom there actually would have been to the right more then is shown in the picture. Or they could be solar panels but I`m thinking sun type room.

Certainly interesting.

if u follow the road leading to the golf course you will see some structures
well there are air vents and other indicators that this building reaches this area

I was stationed at Hill for like 5 years, and played golf at the course there all the time. Very nice course actually. I have no idea what youre referring to though.

If the question is referring to the grid like structure against the wall that looks like it leads to underground, it could be for storm water retention. Desert rain is infrequent but really hard when it does come down. By retaining storm water, you reduce the surge, and thus less erosion. Just a guess mind you. The photo isn't that good.

storm water retention

The Army Corp of Engineers requires a SWPP. (Storm Water Polution Prevention)

If you look at the roads around the Nellis range, there are all sorts of culverts to handle the rain. Some places the culverts are so big you think you are on a road, well until the culvert ends. ;-)

if you pass the golf course road and right after that make a right there is a building built into the side of the hill. out of all places to build a building this is strange

Wine storage?
wine caves

Building into the hillsides has a long western tradition. The Indians did this on a grand scale. Old western ranches had hillside storage on a smaller scale.

Some explosive storage at old mines was in hillsides. Really this is not very unusual construction.

this is not wine storage or munitions. the munitions sections is slightly west of the runway toward the north end.
wine storage on a military instalation? under a golf course? where there are no places for tractor trailers to park?

I didn't mean to imply this is a munitions bunker. The miners and ranchers stored munitions like that, but not the DoD.

In any event, the building looks quite harmless. No dual fencing, satcom, or anything that makes me think much is going on there.
