I was watching something the other night along the lines of "Area 51's secrets" on either the Discovery, History or TLC channels.
Basically these guys were spying on folks who worked at one of the "test" sites in Nevada that the Janet flights from LAS serve, video taping them and such as they came back from work and exited the "Janet" parking lot on their way home.
This was occuring at the "Janet" terminal at Las Vegas Mcarran airport.
I had a thought, why on Earth if these people who take these Janet flights everday (to Area 51, Tonopagh etc) work on classified or "secret" projects why are they flying them from a commercial airport in plain sight of everyone?..
Would it not be wise for security if the Janet flights flew from Nellis AFB, that way the employees who work at the facility (Area 51) would not be distinguishable from normal Nellis AFB employees.
Only people with base access would see who gets on and off those Janet 737s everyday if they were operating out of Nellis AFB, they are currently flying out of McCarren and these "UFO " hunters or people with less innocent intentions can see in broad day light who gets on and off these planes and what kind of car they drive. They even can follow them home and be targets for attemted extortion or whatever to try to get information from, they are not incouspicuous flying those White and Red 737s into and out of LAS everyday.
Where as if they were operating from Nellis no one outside the gates would be able to tell the folks who cut the grass at Nellis from the "engineers" who are coming from Secure operating facilities such as Groom Lake.
