    So what is going on at Area 51?

    THE tragic death of Lieutenant Colonel Eric Schultz last week on a weapons testing range in Nevada has attracted an inordinate amount of interests.
    And it’s because of what we don't know.
    The US Air Force has pointedly refused to reveal what aircraft he was at the controls of when the fatal accident occurred. It also took them three days to even admit his death.
    This is in stark contrast to another accident, at the same range, in the same week. Details of an accident involving two A-10 ground-attack jets which forced their pilots to eject were released within hours.
    So what could possibly cause such reluctance to reveal the circumstances of Schultz’ death?
    “I can definitely say it was not an F-35,” Chief of Staff of the Air Force General David L. Goldfein stated at the weekend.


    He was responding to speculation that this accident involved the highly controversial stealth fighter, and that this was being covered-up to protect its already bruised reputation.
    The F-35 Lightning II has recently suffered several engine fires — one of which injured a pilot. It has also been the subject of warnings surrounding its ejection seat which — when combined with the weight and shape of its advanced helmet — could break the neck of its pilots.



    But it wasn’t and F-35.
    So what was it?
    The USAF is remaining tight-lipped.
    All we know is the unspecified aircraft crashed about 6pm some 200km northwest of Nellis Air Force Base in the Nevada Test and Training range. This range is also home to the extremely secretive “Area 51” research and development facility.
    Everything from crashed alien spacecraft to the next-generation Blackbird ultra-fast surveillance jet are said to be housed here.
    But we don’t actually know. It’s secret.
    The USAF also admitted the unknown aircraft was being operated by the Air Force Materiel Command. This is the unit that funds and operates aircraft research — and facilities like Area 51 (Groom Lake).
    So analysts have been pouring through declassified reports into activities in the Nevada area to glean whatever clues they can

    Has to be captured or reverse-engineered alien spacecraft. Has to be!

    Time to hide in the bunker again!

    Hasn't there been a series of accidents from pilots not being supplied with enough oxygen? I'd suspect oxygen deprivation as the cause of the crashes.

    It isn't just Area 51. I live in a practice area for military flight, and with the crash of Ospreys, there has been much less activity lately, including Ospreys, jets, and helicopters. It's strangely quiet.

    There's still lots of activity at the test range out of Nellis.
