The pilot told him not to raise the visor until told to do so, and they made an arresting hook landing. But he was sure they were not on a ship because it just didn't feel like it. After a few minutes the pilot told him it was ok to raise the visor, and they were in a huge cavern, and he was able to see the blast doors just closing. He said the place was about as big as a small carrier and was carved out of rock with the walls being concrete. but the celing was bare rock. There were several aircraft in the rear of the facility but they were all covered with tarps.
All of the airmen working the Flightline were navy , but there were also airforce personel and marines about.
He was greeted by his counter part and escorted to where he was going to do his thing, and told he would have access to the mess if needed, and would have a berth if needed as well, but he would have to be escorted, as the rest of the facility was off limits.

If we had some idea of what systems your friend's father worked on, that would maybe be helpful. Did he work with conventional a/c? Evidently, he did, NG people are not usually working with or have specific training in state-of-the-air a/c. I assume that the job had something to do with an ordinary a/c such as the NG typically serviced, one of the secret lair's conventional a/c evidently could not fly out for outside service and a conventional tech had to be brought in.
But a/c's under tarps in a secret cave tell us that they had some exotic equipment there also.
Mountain caves would be a perfect place for a secret triangle base since they don't need runways, arresting hooks or catapults. Triangles started appearing in the mid-1970s. I wonder when this incident happened?

That's a very cool story.
I guess it's certainly possible, but can you imagine a missed tailhook inside a cavern?
You never said where he started out from so trying to figure out what would be within a 1 hr flight time for that aircraft is difficult.
Why are you sure it's in the Sierra Nevada's?
He thought it was in the mountains by the way they flew in and out. Since we live at the foot of the sierra,iit's the most logical first choice. And it wouldn't be hard to hide something like that in the Sierra, there are dozens of huge tunnels carved in the rock, for hydro projects.
But you know now that I think about it,, the description does sound very area 51ish.
When he boarded the aircraft , the pilot handed him a helmet with a blacked out visor.
It was a short flight, less than 2hrs, but he was certain that they had flown in circles for about an hr , so wherever they were it was close.
