Sorry, DYepes, but the is no underground complex at Area 51. What you see is what you get: hangars, runways, radar sites, administration buildings and
support infrastructure. That's it.
The existence of the Groom Lake facility has never been secret. In 1955 the CIA crafted a statement for release to the news media through the Atomic
Energy Commission to inform the public of construction of the new base. This statement, describing the location and basic configuration of the
airfield (then known as Watertown Airstrip) was given to newspapers, television reporters, and radio stations in Nevada and Utah. In 1959, the media
was further informed of progress on "Project 51" at Groom Lake where EG&G was moving their radar facilities. In January 1960, an unclassified Nevada
Test Site newsletter published "new Area 51 telephone numbers" for the base commander, security office, and base contractor. Area 51 appeared on
numerous unclassified maps, including those handed out to the general public by the AEC. The most famous acknowledgement of the existence of the
facility was the 1995 declaration by President Bill Clinton in regard to "the Air Force operating location near Groom Lake." The CIA declassified
its association with Area 51 in 2010, finally allowing the terms "Groom Lake" and "Area 51" to be used freely in discussions and documents
regarding the Agency's historic activities at the site.
