A site of this nature would be incomplete without mention of the facility where these aircraft were developed and tested before operational use. "Groom Lake," "The Ranch," "Area 51," and "Dreamland" are all names that have been associated with the Groom Lake facility in the Nevada desert.

This section of the web site is by no means comprehensive, and is not interested in expanding on the subject. The links section is highly recommended for further inquiry into places mentioned here. Furthermore, this site is not here to speculate as to what is happening at the facility. What you will find is a tourist's perspective and an overview of the obvious.
