Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone here sees or has ever seen the unmarked 737's that leave from Las Vegas and sometimes California headed to the Groom Lake test range?
There was a rumor that leaked out about the base actually being shut down or abandoned for several reasons which was quickly responded to and shot down. I have read recent articles about these planes and also King Airs serving the same purpose, and have seen the 737's leave from Vegas a couple months ago. Just wanted to know if anyone else has seen em, i think its interesting stuff, 10-12 flights a day starting at 4:30am not ending till about 1:30am. What a job.

If you are refering to a 732. I believe it is the government owned one that simply shuttles the people that work at the Groom Lake site there and back to Las Vegas. Car access is probably not only restricted, but all too imppractical.

Yea, thats what I'm talking about....they use buses also for people, but the private contractor...EC&G (i believe thats the order of the letters)owns the 737-200adv's and use them as the shuttle. ATC callsign Janet....Just wondering if anyone else had seen em.
