A Little More About,

one of Americas biggest secrets,

Area 51, to say access to the base is limited is an understatement, the base and its activities are highly classified, the remote location helps keep the activities figuratively under the radar, as does the proximity to the NTS, after several land seizures, the base is surrounded by thousands of acres of empty desert landscape, the Air Force has withdrawn lands from public use to help keep the base hidden from snooping eyes, for many years, observers could hike to elevated vantage points like White Sides Peak or Freedom Ridge, but the Air Force seized those lands as well, today, the only way you'll catch a glimpse of the base in person (assuming you aren't working there) is to take the strenuous hike to the top of Tikaboo Peak, which is 26 miles from the facility,

for many years, mapmakers wouldn't include the facility on any maps, it fell within the borders of Nellis Air Force Range, but the road leading to the facility was never shown, today, the location of the base is general knowledge, but for many years officials went to great lengths to obscure its location, we mention the area before in a CNN news item,

so what were some of the secrets there? the U-2 Spy Plane, Suntan, A-12 (later known as the SR-71 "Blackbird,"), Tacit Blue and Have Blue (Have Blue was a prototype for the F117-A Stealth Fighter), the Bird of Prey and TR3A Black Manta, are just a few, plus cancelled projects like Aurora, in the rumour department The Brilliant Buzzard or Mothership, plus a few captured Soviet aircraft for research, 

did I mention the tame aliens also there, mentioned in a secret organisation known as MJ-12, sometimes called Majestic or Majic 12? oops! I should not have said that!
