Forget Area 51, America has an EVEN MORE secretive military test site named Area 6
A TOP secret airbase more mysterious than Area 51 has been spotted in the Nevada desert on Google Earth.
Area 6, a shielded airbase used for testing unmanned aircraft, has got conspiracy theorists wondering what the US Government might be hiding at such a remote location.
The site is roughly 12 miles northeast of Area 51 and is part of the Nevada National Security Site, where 1,000 nuclear tests were carried out between 1945 and 1995.
Six nuclear tests and four detonations have been completed in Area 6 according to the US Department of Energy.
The mysterious airbase has a 5,000ft runway used by federal agencies to carry out aircraft tests, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
Its secretiveness has quickly led to comparisons with Area 51, where some conspiracy theorists believe the wreckages of crashed UFOs are stored and studied.
National Nuclear Security Administration spokesman Darwin Morgan told the Las Vegas Review-Journal: “We have controlled airspace and that gives them opportunities to test various types of platforms.
“We do a wide variety of work for others – supporting people with sensor development activities.
“It evolved from the nuclear testing program. We had to have very good sensors to collect data in a split second before they were obliterated.”
The Nevada National Security Site is run by the National Nuclear Security Administration’s field office in the state, which works with other agencies to develop ways of tackling terrorism.
Could they be interrogating the Grays at Area 6?
