Area 51 Employees to Talk Top-Secret Aircraft

Area 51 Employees to Talk Top-Secret Aircraft

Move over, Scully and Mulder. Some of the secrets of Nevada’s mysterious Area 51 will be revealed Feb. 9 at the National Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas, Nev.

As “The X-Files” TV show told us, “The truth is out there.” But don’t expect tales of alien spacecraft and little green men during the Saturday evening lecture. The two speakers — T.D. Barnes and retired U.S. Air Force Col. Gail Peck, not Scully and Mulder — have worked at the installation known as Area 51, possibly America’s worst-kept military secret, but their remarks are expected to focus on aircraft from Earth, not outer space.

Barnes and Peck worked on top secret “black” projects at the highly guarded installation about 100 miles north of Las Vegas. It’s where some hush-hush military aircraft reportedly have been designed, built and tested.
