Area 51
Area 51, also known as Groom Lake, is a secret military facility about 90 miles north of Las Vegas. Groom Lake is a six by ten mile block of land, at the center of which is a large United States Air Force base the US government will not discuss. The site was selected in the 1950's for testing of the U-2 spyplane, due to its remoteness, proximity to existing facilities and presence of a dry lake bed for landings.

Groom Lake is the traditional testing ground for "black budget" aircraft before they are publicly acknowledged. Both the F-117A Stealth Fighter and B-2 Stealth Bomber were tested at Groom Lake. Resisdents living in the area were able to take home movies and photographs of these secret aircraft years before the government ever acknowledged that they existed. The facility and surrounding areas are also associated, with varying levels of credibility, with UFO, conspiracy and government coverup stories.
