On May 14th 2012 myself, four other people and a BBC film crew were filming in Nevada and near Area 51 and decided to go up to the Back Gate at Rachel at approx 1730 hours. We drove down the road to the gate and parked up expecting to be turned away straight away as we were filming on the public land outside the boundary. However there were no guards to be seen and all was quiet.
There was 12 of us in total plus one tour bus and driver, so after spending about 30 minutes doing various filming outside the first stop barrier and trying to call the guards, we all decided to walk onto the prohibited area in front of the guard shacks and continue filming. I though this was a bad idea but still no sign of any guards and we were left alone to freely film the buildings and cctv cameras watching us. Basically we had ignored the warning signs and we now trespassing on Area 51 as you can see in the images. We continued to film for another 30 minutes with no trouble at all until one of our group looked through the shack window at the guards. They were all sitting down eating their dinner watching the basketball on TV.

Surely some alarm would indicate to the Guards that the gate`s had been breached , there would be censors and camera`s all along the road leading to the base .
Here is the historic situation prior to the May 1989 Lazar interview. No one in the public, except John Lear and a couple hikers even knew there was even a base there. There were mountains hiding the base and it was in the middle of an inhospitable desert where few people dared to travel. From 1955 till 1989 officials had been able to test various Top Secret planes in complete secrecy. In 1985 they grabbed 49,000 more acres of land to keep out hikers, installed heavy security around the base complete with cameras, ground motion detectors, and signs with threat to kill messages to anyone who chose to get closer. It doesn’t get much more quiet, secure and secret than that.
