"Chinese Area 51" Still Being Updated

Back in 2011 I read this thread and I've been curious about it ever since. I did some searching but couldn't find anything recent, nor could I find anything confirming what it was.

Today I thought about it again and decided to go back and see if anything changed since, some things have...
If you've already seen this place before, skip to the bottom to see why I thought it was worth bringing up again.

40°29'12.19"N 93°30'0.01"E

This area was built

40°28'32.25"N 93°33'13.69"E

These were built earlier and destroyed. But in 2013 they were removed (?) and lots of vehicles appear

40°24'50.21"N 93°35'2.53"E

A hangar is built on a runway.

40°28'41.82"N 93°30'58.48"E

This isn't from 2013, but still mystifies me.

40°29'16.55"N 93°27'28.69"E

And then this is why I decided it may be worth making a thread...

40°28'12.72"N 93°30'50.39"E

I was playing around with the timeline setting and noticed a runway (?) appear... when I zoomed in I noticed some kind of aircraft (I don't know which kind. I know nothing about planes!), then when I went forwards in time the plane was obviously blurred out... then when I went forwards once more it returned.
Here's a close up

Why is there some kind of hole in the road (?) leading towards it?

I don't usually make threads, and I'm sorry if I've done something wrong in this one. I feel like there's already too many pictures, so instead I'll just post coordinates of some of the places that caught my eye.

40°27'32.95"N 93°22'52.44"E - Huge empty square and strange markings.
40°27'2.89"N 93°44'34.61"E - More strange markings
40°29'45.67"N 93°25'47.45"E - To the left are some buildings which appear to be connected with some kind of wire? To the right are some more buildings.
40°31'4.54"N 93°27'22.88"E - I just noticed these now, they remind me of those huge trucks with rockets on the back... I'm probably wrong though.
40°29'26.40"N 93°30'38.70"E - Small set of buildings are built and destroyed.
40°28'9.25"N 93°31'20.16"E - Buildings constructed nearby the runway
40°24'10.56"N 93°38'22.78"E - I'm not sure what this is...

I feel like there's something special about this place, I could be very wrong. Thanks for looking!

You don't post that many threads? Jesus. I better step up my game!! Beautifully done. Awesome info. S&F

It looks more like a bombing range than a base like Area 51.

When you try to discover things on Google Earth, it is best to have a baseline. That is a reference of some known place that is similar to that which you are trying to find. For instance, it would help to understand Edwards and Nellis AFB before trying to examine Groom Lake.

Here is the Nanjing base in China. Just a base I picked at random, but at least we know it is actually a base.

For one thing, it is fuel tanks.

You might want to slow down the rate at which your images change slide.

Not directly related to these specific pictures, but I did come across this awhile back when this first came to main stream news (at least I think this is when it first hit the scene): Gobi Desert Anamolies Explained

Some of the grid lines were supposedly used as a fail-safe calibration system. Always wondered about what all of the other things were though, sure as hell looked like some sort of bomb/weapons testing range to me...

It looks to be a bombing range, I live next to an Artillery and A-10 warthog bombing range, and is very similar, they set up tanks , aircraft, buildings, strange 6 pointed stars, that must give the operator a better idea of where his projectile hit, and if it needs to be corrected.

Thanks for the replies, a bomb testing site seems reasonable... I'm just curious as to why that plane was erased? It can't be an accident, can it? I mean... it's the only thing that was changed?

A great thread with a well deserved star

However, i cant follow the information on the pics as it changes too quickly. Please could you slow it down a bit for those of us that like to absorb info a bit slower

You will get a flag as well if you do

It says that I'm not allowed to edit my original post as it's been 4 hours so I'll put the slower pictures & originals here. Again, I believe it's probable that it's just a site for bombing. My question is why the plane is blurred out that one time?

Click the coordinates to see a large picture with the originals, you should be able to zoom in (CTRL + Mousewheel for me.)

Hangar being built:

40°28'41.82"N 93°30'58.48"E

The 4x4 Grid:

40°24'50.21"N 93°35'2.53"E

The 2013 construction:

40°28'32.25"N 93°33'13.69"E

The orange circular building

40°29'16.55"N 93°27'28.69"E

And the plane

40°28'12.72"N 93°30'50.39"E

reply to post by AKindChap

The area defiantly looks like practice bombing ranges (Small craters varying in frequency across the range) and the fake airstrips do resemble a couple of airbases in Taiwan (Taoyuan AB, Taiwan).
