But then you'd have to be a member of MIB, and if you join, you will cease to exist to the outside world, and your name will be J. If you leave the organization, your brain will be reformatted with a red light, and you will go postal, literally

I was just a bit curious as to how these flights work, so I went to www.flightaware.com - it's a really cool site that allows you to track many GA and airline flights that are IFR or under flight following, unless the aircraft has been blocked. I searched all arrivals into LAS and found a bunch of them arriving and departing,for the Tonopah Test Range, KTNX.
It says all the aircraft are B73Q's, which I imagine are the 737-200's. Looks like the 200 flight numbers go to LAS and the 300's are inbound to TNX. Also, the site gives the owner of various aircraft or the operators for aircraft with a flight number, and it says "Unknown Owner" for all the flights, like WWW310 which flew from TNX to LAS departing at 05:43PM PST and arriving 06:10PM PST. I count 20 departures to LAX and TNX today, 12-13-05 with the first one leaving LAS at 4:17am, so they must have a few aircraft because the times overlap.

What the FUC%! Who wants to fly a ragedy 732 on 100 mile runs 5 times a day with 4000 hours AND a rating as a minimum? There must be some good financial compensation. Scenic Airlines seems more appealing for a flying job.
It never existed except as a map coordinate for a USAF bombing range.
There's an airfield on that map coordinate which is positioned at Groom Lake dry lakebed.
That airfield was the home of several "black" US government projects, a role it officially lost several years ago.
It is now as I understand it listed as a flight testing base and auxiliary airfield for Nellis AFB, NV.
You are exactly right! No end-of-career "security lobotomy" needed. The sheer boredom of the job would have wiped your brain's hard disk clean by then.
I can't think of anything to recommend this job except probably a decent salary (but not in six figures) and good job security. (unless they cancel some projects)
Other than that all you are going to see is a concrete runway, a dry lake, and some buildings. Anything you might learn is either some BS story the workers cook up to tell the pilots or something you don't want to know. Same route day after day after day. On top of that you'd have to live in or near Las Vegas.
Happiness is not seeing another trite Ste. Maarten photo all week long.

Don't know when this was taken. Looks like they have 2 F-16s parked outside and a 737. Observe the area when the dirt has been churned up, they must be burrying something. Also note the baseball diamond for top secret baseball games.

Id bet the pay and benefits aren't too bad. I'd gather that it would be a good job if you really wanted to fly, stay in Vegas, and be home every night (which is a big deal if you are a pilot).
Yeah, it might be boring, but if you'd rather spend time with your family and not at the Albuquerque Comfort Inn, its probably not a bad deal.
