The second shot isn't Area 51 but rather the edge of the Yucca Flats dry lakebed on the NTS, Area 6. The airport partially in the picture is the
Lockheed-Martin AOF (Aerial Operations Facility) from which I understand some UAVs are tested.
Added later: I see I'm late to this party.

It would be better if you could stop dancing around taking random photos and get a male/female calender featuring the hottest engineers in randy poses
honestly cause although the security is sexy the engineers are the best thing out there.
Dont forget to blur the faces for national security and all

The contracts for the new construction at Creech are open source. They are found on fbo.gov. This work has to go out to bid, so it isn't a big
secret. What do you need to know. ;-) I also have details on the new comm tower at Creech. It is jointly shared with the DOE.
Even the bidding to buy the nearby casino had to be done in public. That is how you know there are no back room deals...in theory. The last time I
drove by the area, the casino was still in operation, or at least looked like it. For security concerns, the USAF will own all the civilian property
on their side of highway 95.
OSINT (open source intelligence) is very old school. The intelligence service do it, but so do plenty of "investigators." Government contracts is a
good start. Also reading the federal register. None of this takes filing FOIAs.
