if there is nothing suspicious about the base then why do they threaten to kill you if you cross an imaginary metal fence that they cant even build?

their message to us is that they own the land its theirs we the people cannot go onto their precious land because they fear we will do what exactly again??

are they scared that we will start throwing trash around? LOL its the freaking desert the rocks are natures trash..

and if they are so scared that we will see some new type of weapons or aircraft why dont they just hide it? so we can just check the base out...

and whats up with not showing us new tech? do they hate us advancing in tech or something?...

man screw them just nuke and there will be no top secret base.


OH by the way the base looks like crap.... its falling apart and there are cracks on the run ways

LOL

Because it's a test and development site for top secret projects like stealth bombers and spy planes. I wouldn't want anyone around an area like that either.

If the public knew the military's secrets then possible
enemies would know the secrets too, right ?

One or two seconds of rational thought would have
given you the answer...

I actually think the government promotes the whole hype around Area 51. They like to spread the lies about aliens and crazy stuff going on. In reality, they are testing top secret weaponry and planes that may look from out of this world to outsiders. It's a top secret military testing ground. The more mis-information and lack of credibility from outsiders, the better for them.

If I'm not mistaken, that's where they tested the stealth aircraft, and the drones. They probably don't want to open it up to enemies who just might try to pose as a regular old citizen

just an idea

I have surveilled it twice, legally. You used to be able to look in from nearby hilltops. With a good pair of binocs, I could see large entrances to underground facilities. That is certainly strange for a facility that is merely an airbase to test new aircraft.

Twice I have been followed by the notorious white vans from there. Once all the way back to the outskirts of Las Vegas.


I can't say for sure I know what is going on there, but there is more than meets the eye -- nowadays, at any rate.

Correction to above post: "white vans" should be "white S.U.V.'s". Honest mistake. It's been a few years now.

I can't speak for other branches of the Service, but if you approach any Air Force flightline or secured area, they all have signs that state "Use of Deadly Force Authorized." This is a little fact that people who want to cause trouble or suspicion fail to mention.

As for the runways, are you referring to the closed runways? You can tell they're closed is there is a large X painted on the ends.

Where exactly were these underground entrances on the base exactly? I am interested in looking into these entrances.

As I recall there were two gates: one at the north end of base and one on the east side of the base on a side road off the main highway south of town (Rachel). The hills just outside the east gate afforded a decent view into the base; and looking in toward the west from the hills oppposite the base, several large underground entrances were visible.

It has been over five years, going on ten, maybe. However, that is what I recall.

You can buy a map at the store in Rachel, if you don't get one before you go there. They are probably available on-line as well.

If you go the check it out, happy hunting!

Because it is all about lies, lies, and more lies.

That is what our governments do.

They wont let you near it because its a military base and thats the bottom line. Everything else to do with that place are theories.

Like everyon else said because they are most likily devoloping top secret aircrafts and what not... But since everyone knows about it and it can be seen through google earth(even though its old pics) so maybe its just a cover up now for a bigger , more hidden base?

@why is Area 51 kept away from the general public?,

Hmm the more the public tries to find out about why its kept away the more the public wont look for area 52 or the new version...

I wonder if the USAF has ever thought...

They could solve the US economic crisis single-handedly by opening the base once a year for tours, and charging $extortionate for it. The mythos that surrounds A51 nowdays is such that a lot of people would actually pay. Then there's the t-shirts and all he other souveniers...
