Another name for Area 51. Located 130 miles north of Las Vegas, Nevada this is the name of a top secret Air Force base. It consists of the Nellis Bombing and Gunnery Range, the dry Groom Lake, an 8,500 foot runway, a million-plus gallon fuel storage tank and is rumored to hold alien spacecraft and their inhabitants. Built in 1955 by Lockheed for the CIA, it was designed as the testing ground for the top secret U-2 spy plane. Later the SR-71 Blackbird and F-117A Stealth Fighter were developed here, and now it houses other top secret Department Of Defense-related projects. If you are caught trespassing in Area 51, the military has the right to kill you. Also called The Facilities Near Groom Lake and Watertown.
