Red Flag Oct. 09

It sure has been a very busy Red Flag exercise out of Nellis. Each night there have been countless numbers of jets flying overhead out to the Nellis Range. I went to Nellis this Friday evening in hopes of taking some photos of the B1 Bombers that have been participating. Unfortunately the two B1's were already parked for the evening. I did manage to get at least one cool shot of a plane returning from exercises and landing at Nellis shortly before sunset.

Great Tours with a Canadian and two Aussies!

What an early day. The Paradise Ranch started at 5am and ended at 11:30pm. Sounds like a long day, and it was, but it was worth it. I did two tours on Saturday. The first tour started early in the morning. It was a beautiful sight to see the sun rising over the high desert on the way out to Area 51. The day ended with an evening tour to Area 51. The sunset over Area 51 was breath taking. Overall, they were great people and the day was a blast. The only new thing to report is the road maintenance on Groom Lake Road near the warning signs. They are also scraping the edges of the road near the "white mailbox".

Video Trip Report -Area 51 Tour 10/10/09

Here is a video trip report of our Area 51 Tour with a wonderful German couple. They were a great couple to share Area 51 with. The tour was Saturday October 10, 2009. Everything out at the perimeter of Area 51 seemed normal. The weather was great and we did a lot of shopping at the New Area 51 Research Center. The center is opened on the weekends from 10am to 6pm. They have some real funny Area 51 themed shirts and magnets.
