Saying Groom Lake is a sideshow, the base has moved, blah blah blah is an internet meme. Why anyone would bother repeating that nonsense is beyond me
since it makes the person look ignorant at best and a misinformation agent at worst.
You can simply look at the base on google earth and see that there are new hangars, buildings, etc. Use the "time" feature to track the
construction. Hell, they flew in a 737 just after midnight. (WWW626 N365SR squawking 0331 on final). The place is busier than ever.
People can dream up all the remote location theories they want, but the deal is these test aircraft are under development. The engineers don't live
in Timbuktu. Early in Groom's history, engineering flew in from Burbank. Now the base has flights from Palmdale and Vegas. [Vegas flights daily;
Palmdale flights Monday and Friday.] You don't see this kind of activity at DPG. Now yes, some projects have been tested at DPG. Gorgon Stare for
instance. But that project was never a secret. You can see the contractor aircraft make the trip to DPG for those tests. But the deal with UAVs is
there is a limited number of places you can fly them, and if you are testing UAVs, you need to do it in a manner that doesn't interrupt training at
places like Creech. So logistics comes into play. Hence the occasional test at DPG.
