There is a mysterious Learjet (sort of) that ususally flies to DPG frequently. There based of out Cartersville airport. Think it has a missile-like looking pod on one of the wings owned by Phoenix Air Group.
Perhaps this may be like a Janet flight shuttling Government workers to Dugway?????

Heres another interesting field called Redstone. Sort of like Tonopah Test Range. Second link is also a PHOENIX AIR GROUP INC learjet.

This one as well was going to Dugway....

I had never heard of the Douglas Proving Grounds and I think a few others may not have either, but here's an interesting peice of its history:

On January 26, 2011 Dugway Proving Ground was placed on lockdown. Al Vogel, a public affairs specialist for the installation, would only say that the lockdown began at 5:24 p.m. Employees were not allowed to leave, and those coming to work were not allowed in. Vogel said there were no injuries, no damage and no threats reported at the proving ground. There were about 1,200 to 1,400 people at Dugway when the lockdown occurred. It was later announced that the lockdown was in response to the temporary loss of a vial containing VX nerve agent. The lockdown was lifted on January 27 following recovery of the material

From wiki

Also, from Utah News

The Army and civilian employees at Dugway conduct tests on systems to defend against chemical and biological weapons, as well as tests on smoke and obscurants. They also test meteorological devices. Several thousand sheep mysteriously died in Skull Valley in 1968, with nerve gas from Dugway the suspected culprit.

So you're right. There is something going on out there. Perhaps legit, but if we can find out a little more about the planes going in and out there might be more to this story.

That jet flies all over the nation. I think it is a rent-a-bogie.

Yah...Lears normally fly at around 41,000 feet, but due to the pod under one of the wings, they fly low like 34,000 feet.

And yes, if it were secret flights, then they would not show up on Flighaware either.....So it must not be secret flights...

Picture provided of the kind of camo'ed jet has a US Air Force symbol on the tail.

Phoenix Air Group military operations

Basically rent-a-bogie. The pod is ACMI, similar to what the Red Flag participants use. They often work out in the warning (W) areas off the pacific coast with the US Navy. Their website goes into other activities.

The company got labeled as one of the extraordinary rendition charters, but I'm not sure if that was ever verified via FOIA. Since the company is legit (as opposed to those rendition plane owners with fake names), I suspect Phoenix Air Group wasn't a major player in rendition.

Regarding Internet tracking, I have a list of planes that were blocked that I got from a FOIA request. (To be uploaded eventually). All the Lincoln Labs planes are blocked.

These are the Lincoln Labs (Hanscom AFB) blocked flight IDs. I know NTH4PA is N404PA. I guess NTN0NY is N20NY, NTH5TB is N105TB, etc. (N105TB a regular player at Groom Lake.) It shouldn't be that hard to match flight IDs with tail numbers.

Maybe that 'pod' is monitoring radiation levels from Fukushima.
