Whilst I was looking on Google maps at the UCAV's mentioned in a previous post I found a few interesting items which appear to have been discarded in the Palmdale desert...If you look at: 34.619247,-118.108821 you will find an object which looks like a half buried early stealth design...i.e faceted...!

At 34.617965,-118.105621 you will find what looks like a wing or tailplane....from what??

At 34.619461,-118.106664 we have a collection of objects...maybe packing crates and a jig or two but it is the shapes that are interesting....and finally at 34.619722,-118.119111 we have what looks like a jig or staging for something which was X-33 Venture Star shaped....anybody agree with my take on this...??

I know this is not some great new stealth Aircraft spotted thread but it is intresting to see what they are throwing away at the Palmdale site.

Sv...out!!

There is also the SCA, a NASA DC-8, the SOFIA telescope, and the first two retired 787s sitting there. Even the stuff that's still operational is rather interesting.

I don't suppose you can post a few screen shots. . I've looked but can't really see anything. Also while I was google earthing Area 51 to the south west (I think) of groom lake there is a single air strip with a few hangers in the middle of no where sorry to derail the thread slightly ill see if I can post co-ordinance

Edit: hmm can't seem to get to co-ordinate a off my phone but if you go to groom lake, to the south there is another white patch of desert and then slightly to the SW of that is another patch of white desert that's where I can see the air strip once I get home and onto a lap top ill post a pic

Area 51 borders the Nellis Range, which has a number of fake airstrips, and SAM sites.

Here's an interesting database for you guys. There are a surprising number of Russian SAM sites in the US.

Hmm you could be right your knowledge is far better than mine. It looks too modern to well built to be a dummy site but I don't know ill post a pic and co-ordinates in a bit so you know what I'm looking at


Again apologies for derailing this thread slightly I only posted it here because I didn't want to waste time making another thread

The idea is to make them as realistic as possible. Some of them even have mockups of planes sitting on them in revetments. Then they put fake SAMs that shoot almost like fireworks around them, and they shoot at the Red Flag planes during the exercises.

There are a few desert airstrips out there as well that they fly into, such as TTR and a few others. So you could be seeing any of those. I love the fake airfields though, it's a lot of fun trying to figure out what type of fake planes they're supposed to be.

That is the Yucca Flat airstrip in Area 6. It has been used for UAV development. There was an older, unpaved strip on the lakebed that originally supported the Nevada Test Site, and was later used by Lockheed Martin for testing the P-179 Polecat UAV.

I'm currently sitting in Yuma, and just came through (and am going back through soon) Yucca. I'm not far from the Yuma Proving Grounds right now. Still hoping to see my first F-35 out of MCAS Yuma, but so far only 4 F-5s.

Hope you've got your camera if you come on here saying 'I've just seen my first f-35' I'm gonna call pics or it didn't happen

No, F-35s today, they were apparently grounded ahead of this big storm that's rolling through the area tonight. Did however see my first Osprey. We were sitting at a produce place getting loaded, and it went almost right over where we were sitting heading into Yuma. Sadly the only camera I have is my phone, and it went by too fast to even think about a picture.

Its plant 42. There are a dozen plus hangers. Care to take a screen shot or give better directions? It'd be appreciated greatly.

That looks like a C-5 engine. It almost looks like a TF-33, but not much uses that anymore, but the wing drops from the top of the fuselage, so it's got to be either a C-5 or C-17, but the C-17 doesn't have any engine sticking back like that, so I'm going with a C-5.

This was as close as I could find to the same angle:




Another one:

Correcting my earlier post. Apparently Skunk Works is performing MRO on C-5s in 602. We can only take them at their word.

I was going to guess S-3, but the scale is all wrong. It has to be the C-5.
