Groom Lake is a top secret military base in the middle of Nevada. It is in grid number 51 of the areas of the Nevada Test Site, thus, Area 51. The United States Air Force Flight Test Center, based at the famous Edwards AFB, controls the base. It is a flight test center for classified aircraft and other exotic weapons. This base does not exist according to the government but clearly from the picture above, it does exist and is very active. The base was created in 1954 as a place to test the secret U-2 spyplane that was used to fly reconnasance missions over the Soviet Union. It was laster redesigned to accomodate the SR-71, A-12 and D-21 drone. The Have Blue experimental stealth aircraft was tested there and along with the full scale F-117a. Later, in the 1980s, the bases size has doubled and the length of the runway increased to 27,000 feet. Also, mysterious lights began to appear over the airspace of the base and armed guards with M16 assault rifles strictly enforced the border. Today, the government has closed numerous viewpoints that have direct views of anything that goes on at the base. The location where the picture above was taken was closed. In 1989, a physicist named Bob Lazar claimed that he worked at a base south of Area 51 and also claimed that Area 51 was testing extremely advanced aircraft. Since then, Area 51 has been thought to be the test center of captured UFOs because of the lights in the night sky.
