I was watching the 1971 movie the Andromeda Strain and the opening credits say they had help from Vandenberg AFB, yawn. But, they also mention something about a laboratory named wildfire at Flatrock, Nevada. I checked google earth and coudn't find it. Anybody have the coordinates for this place. It seems logical to me they would have a facility like this as a contingence plan, as long as no aliens are there who cares if people know.

Oh, the whole Dulce story came from that movie with a few minor vivid imaginations sprinkled into the Dulce story. The base lay out in the Andromeda strain is as exact as the base at dulce, with 2 extra levels added to it. There is no Thomas Costello because Bob Lazar, who's story came out after Dulce worked with a man named Barry Costello, uuuuh. You really have to cross match Bob Lazar's story, Dulce story, people Bob knew like Jim Taliani who is real, but Bob's boss at S4 which is real except its a radar field at the TTR was named Dennis Mariani, uuuuh see the rhyme there? Just little tidbits there, but the first question is the main question here.

I believe Flatrock, NV and Wildfire are fictitious and used solely for the story.

I was watching it on google video and yes that is the name of the facility in the movie, but it could be based off a real place with the same name. Vandenberg is real and this could be to, atleast before the movie even starts they make it sound that way. I good be wrong, just trying to get anything out I haven't heard before.

Yes, I would assume it could be based on a real place, or a combination of places. But, I'm pretty sure the name and location were created solely within Michael Crichton's imagination.

Hope you find what you're looking for, my friend.

Try: 35°31'6.47"N 114°53'28.15"W in Google Earth.

It is a FICTIONAL facility, but the place is on the map. JUST FOR FUN! How did I find it:
1. Watch the movie at 32:55 to 33:05 - there is a map of Nevada with the Wildfire location (it is an Atomic Energy Commission Facilities Chart saying the entire South Nevada is a "testing ground"!!??);
2. PrintScreen the paused movie;
3. Open the image in InrfanView: crop Nevada map, sharpen, edge detect;
4. Open Google Earth: search for "Flatrock Crossing Way, Nevada", go South border of Nevada State (border lines activated, add image overlay (edge detect image one), and make size and rotation adjustments up to image edges match the Nevada borders;
5. In GE: Pin the center of big spot (Wildfire): it is 35°31'6.47"N 114°53'28.15"W (also add polygon around the spot, it is the probable area of Wildfire);
6. In GE: unselect the edge detect image, go closer to the pin, and look around inside of the polygon: there are few facilties in 35°31'10.08"N 114°53'3.32"W (it is the probable Department of Agriculture facility just above the Wildfire!!??), pin and add polygon around.

It just for fun!!! Please do not disturb the peacefull South Nevada farmers about it!!!

Few interesting things:
- Wildfire is fictional but I suppose Atomic Energy Commission Facilities Chart saying the entire South Nevada is a "testing ground" is a real one;
- There is a small spot on the map, southwest from Wildfire ( 35°28'1.23"N 114°55'6.98"W). It is a small town of Searchlight, it is real and there is casino there if you like it.
- Look around the Dept. of Agriculture faciltiy: watch the movie, check the two scientists in a car get a small road (at right of the main road) before they get. There is a turnabout at south of the facility in GE with a road leading to the facility;
- In the same area: there is a modern building at northeast of the facility ( 35°31'13.95"N 114°52'51.12"W) I dont know what it is;
