The CIA has released a 355-page document which officially acknowledges that Area 51 in Nevada does exist, and the agency comes clean about their weather balloon cover stories. Nope, no revelations about extraterrestrial spacecraft or alien bodies hidden at the base, but a really grainy map showing the location of Area 51 is included.
High-altitude testing of the U-2 soon led to an unexpected side effect-a tremendous increase in reports of unidentified flying objects (UFOs).
The document also explains Project Blue Book and other frequently associated UFO story staples. Such reports were most prevalent in the early evening hours from pilots of airliners flying from east to west.
A handwritten document about the U-2 spyplane design that was included in the information released by the CIA about test flights and Area 51. Air Force investigators then attempted to explain such sightings by linking them to natural phenomena.
In the document, the CIA admits the weather balloon stuff was just a cover story, but it was the standard operating procedure for how to explain away the sightings as well as debris from any crashes. After the plane and the pilot went missing, and with the fate of the plane and pilot unknown, the CIA had NASA release a statement that they had a weather airplane that went off course over the Soviet Union because the pilot had passed out due to a loss of oxygen. The documents were released in response to a Freedom of Information Act request submitted in 2005 by Jeffrey T. Richelson has pointed out that the location of Area 51 was not a particularly well-kept secret. Why the North Pole Is Really a South Pole (and Vice Versa)Weekly Space Hangout – Aug.
That was right around the time when the people who were interested in what they were doing there changed from the tinfoil hat crowd to mainly aviation buffs. Suspended upside down, a titanium A-12 spy-plane prototype is prepped for radar testing at Area 51 in the late 1950s. Remnants of a crashed A-12 spy planea€”including two engines and the shattered rear fuselagea€”litter the ground near Wendover, Utah, in a 1963 picture recently declassified by the CIA and published here for the first time.Things went horribly wrong for test pilot Ken Collins (flying under his Area 51 code name Ken Colmar) when testing the plane's subsonic engines at low altitude. An aerial photo shows a massive rapid-response team at the site of the A-12 crash near Wendover, Utah, in 1963.After pilot Ken Collins had parachuted to the ground, he was stunned to be greeted by three civilians in a pickup, who offered to give him a ride to the wreckage of his plane.

This is a cool place if you are ever driving across Nevada on HW 375 AKA "Extraterrestrial Highway".
Area 51, also known as Groom Lake,is a secret military facility about 90 miles north of Las Vegas.
If you have the time, buy a map that will show you how to go back to "Area 51" gate, Very spookey and 13 miles off the main road, and we are talking "Out there", No one around. When you get there you will notice at least one of the white Jeep Cherokees of the "Cammo Dudes" sitting on a nearby hill.
Check out the "ID4" monument in front of the Little A'Le'Inn it was placed here by the producers of the movie Independence Day. Area 51 was also referred to as Groom Lake (the name of the dry lake Area 51 was built around), Paradise Ranch (a half-serious way to entice employees to accept positions at the remote, rustic base), Watertown (the official name of the test site, given in 1956), and Dreamland (after an Edgar Allan Poe poem). Area 51’s nickname DREAMLAND was allegedly derived from an Edgar Allan Poe poem by the same name.
The first known use of the area was the construction in 1941 of an auxiliary airfield for the West Coast Air Corps Training Center at Las Vegas Air Field.
Under President Dwight Eisenhower the Groom Lake facility was put in the hands of the CIA for Project Aquatone, for the development of the Lockheed U-2 reconnaissance aircraft in April 1955.
Helen Frost, whose husband Robert died in 1988 from the fumes, filed a lawsuit against the government in 1996 but the case was dismissed by the judge because the government could neither confirm nor deny the allegations, and it was also stated that the base is exempt from any environmental laws. When Area 51 was chosen as the testing site for the A-12 OXCART, a new, 8,500-foot runway had to be built.
Early on, the only entertainment at Area 51 consisted of a single cement tennis court and a small bowling alley.
There is a sliver of truth to the conspiracy theory that the moon landing was staged at Area 51. Area 51 has not been spared by the downturn in the economy, it is estimated that there are 1600 to 2000 employees working at the  military facility involving at least a dozen defense contractors as of 2013. Over half of all UFO reports from the late 1950s through the 1960s were accounted for by manned reconnaissance flights (namely the U-2) over the United States, virtually all originating from Area 51. The OXCART cruised at 2200 miles per hour, but because the plane was secret it was kept out of official speed competitions.
An A-12 spy plane was used when the USS Pueblo was captured by North Korea to photograph the area and determine the ship's location. The Air Force has acknowledged the existence of the Nellis Range Complex near the Groom Dry Lake for many years now.
The range is used for the testing of technologies and systems training for operations critical to the effectiveness of U.S.

Some specific activities and operations conducted on the Nellis Range, both past and present, remain CLASSIFIED and cannot be discussed. But pushing the limits came with risks—and led to the catastrophic 1963 crash of an A-12 based out of Area 51.
After pilot Ken Collins had parachuted to the ground, he was stunned to be greeted by three civilians in a pickup, who offered to give him a ride to the wreckage of his plane.
You won't find it on any geological or aeronautical maps and yet like a place in the Twilight Zone, flights to it leave Las Vegas' McCarran Airport every day.
Top secret aircraft, even those that have been publicly disclosed, remain mysterious long after emerging from the black world. One such fate that has befallen crashed, retired or failed projects over the decades is burial. The Nighthawks may be the latest airframes to be entombed in the desert, but the practice is hardly new.
Great article we should SAVE ONE of Every Aircraft we build weather it goes into full production or not. July 18, 2011 – While it is not widely known, a new project from Area 51 was put into use recently, used to spy on Osama Bin Laden by our military before he was killed in a raid.
The strange part isn’t that Area 51 is still in business (made apparent by the fact that new hangers have been added in recent years) or that it has a new toy to play with, the strange part is that seemingly no one knew of it until it was seen in Afghanistan while it was being put to use.
Even now it works on a need to know basis where those who work there are only told enough to be able to do their jobs and even the President may not be on that need to know list. The other main tactics used to keep Area 51 secret are a disconnect from the internet and misinformation, including rumors of UFOs, faked alien corpses, and fake eye witness reports.
The document covers the U-2 and SR-71 spyplane programs and Project OXCART, the aerial reconnaissance programs, from 1954 to 1974.
In the mid-1950s, most commercial airliners flew at altitudes between 10,000 and 20,000 feet and military aircraft like the B-47s and B-57s operated at altitudes below 40,000 feet.
The job of Project Blue Book was actually to figure out when civilians were reporting UFOs that were actually U-2s and then work out how to keep that from happening again. BLUE BOOK investigators regularly called on the Agency’s Project Staff in Washington to check reported UFO sightings against U-2 flight logs. However, this cover story ended up having disastrous results in May of 1960 when the crash of a U-2 in Russia and the subsequent capture of pilot Gary Powers set in motion a pattern of mistrust between the US and USSR that culminated in the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. That story was quickly proven to be a hoax when the USSR produced the crashed U-2 plane and the pilot, who survived the crash and who had admitted to spying. Its location appears in satellite imagery like Google Maps and Google Earth, as well as in books on aerial surveillance.
Previously she served as UT's Senior Editor and lead writer, and has worked with Astronomy Cast and 365 Days of Astronomy. They’ll just consider it another government coverup and read way too much between the lines.
I mean there must be some other classified information and technology that they dont want want the public to know about. If the U2 recon plane was so super secret how was it that an Irish pop band knew of it’s existence as early as 1978 and named their band after it? At 25,000 feet (7,620 meters), "the airplane pitched up and went up and got inverted and went into a flat incipient spin," Collins says in the new National Geographic Channel documentary Area 51 Declassified.
Instead, Collins got them to give him a ride in the opposite direction, by telling them the plane had a nuclear weapon on boarda€”a prearranged cover story to keep the Area 51 craft a secret.Soon a team of government agents appeared to direct a complete cleanupa€”and cover-upa€”operation. In their judgment, the photos of the 1963 crash no longer are, and so they were declassified and released," Robarge told National Geographic News."In 2007 the CIA declassified over a thousand documents related to the OXCART program and published an unclassified history of it in conjunction with the acquisition from the Air Force of one of the nine remaining A-12 airframes," now on display at CIA headquarters, Robarge added. Part of an engine nacelle and an exhaust ejector are visible at left.Though the CIA has released some photos of the incident, officials remain mum about exactly who was involved in the cover-up and how it was carried out. The border of the restricted area is marked by a line of orange posts, spaced about 50 yards apart. Wish you had moved a little bit to the left so that the "spaceship" is closer to the sign but it's still very funny, cool! Learn more about the nicknames, entertainment, food, spy planes, and rumors surrounding this infamous site.
Today, the official name of Area 51 is Air Force Flight Test Center, Detachment 3, or AFFTC Det.
To accommodate the plane, an additional 38,400 acres of land around the base had to be withdrawn from public access and the restricted airspace expanded to create a 440-square mile box. There was no television, and radio signals only made it through the surrounding mountains in the evening. The fuel was made to withstand extremely high temperatures and would not ignite even if someone threw a match into a barrel full of it. Some say alien aircraft are stored there and reverse-engineered to create new aircraft and weapons, or it's the site of genetic testing or other diabolical plots. When – and if – secret planes are declassified, they’re treated differently from other military aircraft, and the specifics of their hardware may remain under wraps for decades. Aircraft have literally been dragged into deep pits miles from public land, often near the enigmatic Groom Lake test site in Nevada, famously known as Area 51.

A fifth was scrapped at Palmdale in April 2008 to test effective methods of destroying F-117 airframes. More than 12 aircraft wrecks are known to have been buried in unmarked graves at Groom Lake since the 1950s.
Lockheed engineers have since searched fruitlessly for one of the Have Blue aircraft (above), which was said to be relatively intact.
It did it’s job well, keeping watch over the compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan while not being seen. It was already set up to push technology fast and hard, coming up with innovations and making sure they were usable, so there were few better places to work on beating Russian in a technology race. Files regarding human radiation testing during the Cold War were kept from former President Clinton because he did not need to know. All of this done to keep secrets warped in a veil of mystery, which makes everyone even more curious as to what happens behind those metaphorical closed doors.
Consequently once U-2s started flying at altitudes above 60,000 feet, air-traffic controllers began receiving increasing numbers of UFO reports. This enabled the investigators to eliminate the majority of the UFO reports, although they could not reveal to the letter writers the true cause of the UFO sightings. Originally, the CIA had released a heavily redacted document with all mention of Area 51 blacked out. Cold Warriors with the highest security clearances could pursue cutting-edge aeronautical projects away from prying eyes. By the next morning, recovery crews had begun loading the wreckage on trucks for the return trip to Area 51 in Nevada.No one else approached the wreck site or even learned of the crash during the next half century.
If you cross the border for ANY reason, they will detain you and call the Lincoln County Sheriff to arrest you. The workers were ordered to go into the trenches and mix up the material and were only allowed to wear protection up to their waist. While some ultimately go to museums, others are placed into storage well away from prying eyes, awaiting a fate that may take years to arrive. The rest of the fleet, meanwhile, rests at the shadowy Tonopah Test Range Airport near Area 51. Meanwhile, rumours persist that the mothballed fleet is in the process of being dismantled and buried at Tonopah, miles from public land. But the search was terminated when diggers allegedly began unearthing other classified projects. Of course, technology was only one half of the cold war, the other was making sure the Russians knew nothing about what we knew. Those who are or have been involved in Area 51 are not allowed to even discuss where they work to loved once, nor are they allowed to discuss what they did with one another after retirement.
But, if a U-2 was airborne in the vicinity of the airliner at the same its horizon from an altitude of 60,000 feet was considerably more distant, and being so high in the sky, its silver wings would catch and reflect the ray of the sun and appear to the airliner pilot 40,000 feet below to be fiery objects. U-2 and later OXCART flights accounted for more than one-half of all UFO reports during the late 1950s and most of the 1960s.
This new document reveals pretty much everything except names of military personnel and private citizens involved. A windowless 737 lands and a group of hooded and handcuffed prisoners are marched into a hanger… and no one would know? Yes, there have been pictures of craft doing amazing maneuvers over these guarded skies and pictures and video smuggled from inside have become legend. The Have Blue’s final resting place, thought to be south of the main hangar complex, has now reportedly been paved over. It is grey and shaped like a bat wing, used for stealth reconnaissance over long distances. Even during the daylight hours, the silver bodies of the high-flying U-2s could catch the sun and cause reflections or glints that could be seen at lower altitudes and even on the ground. HealyAugust 19, 2013 8:34 PMU2 need to go back to their blues roots and revisit The Joshua Tree. But don't expect any information to emerge for several decadesa€”despite the recent declassifications, CIA's Robarge still won't confirm the base exists. Technically they can even shoot trespassers, Yea I was to chicken to take any photos of the signs because of the dude's watching me "very scary" felt good to go back to Rachel to get a bite to eat. The facility was originally designed for the testing of U-2 spy planes, and ultimately Stealth technology would be born there.
These smuggled articles show living and dead aliens, spacecraft of futuristic design, but still the government denies these claims. At this time, no one believed manned flight was possible above 60,000 feet, so no one expected to see an object so high in the sky.
