Using Bing Maps, a remote airstrip deep in the desert of Saudi Arabia has been discovered and given the design elements present, is almost certainly a secret United States drone base. The images show a trio of “clamshell”-style hangars, surrounded by fencing. Each is more than 150 feet long and approximately 75 feet wide; that’s sufficient to hold U.S. Predator and Reaper drones. The hangars are slightly larger, though similar in shape, to ones housing unmanned planes at Kandahar Air Field in Afghanistan.
Project Blue Book was a systematic study of the UFO phenomena conducted by the United States Air Force from 1952 through 1970. Its goals were to determine if UFOs were a threat to national security and to scientifically analyze UFO-related data that was collected. Most feel that in the second regard, Project Blue Book was a grave failure. During the course of the project, 12,618 UFO reports were collected. Of those, 701 reports remained “unidentified”.
Large, disk-shaped UFO reports need to be carefully vetted now that we know the Pentagon is building airships shaped like the traditional flying saucer. Developed by Aeroscraft, the 230-foot-long prototype airship called the Pelican is designed to lift up to 10 tons of cargo across long distances, using a fraction of the fuel needed by an airplane. The project, run by the Pentagon’s Rapid Reaction Technology Office, has been underway for a few years now. The Pentagon claims the new airship will be used for cargo missions but envisions it as a “potential tool for surveillance and reconnaissance missions” too.
That the United States government conducts “Black Projects” is no secret. Black projects are projects that are considered top secret. They are so top secret that the government will not even acknowledge that they exist and will hide the budget details of the project or mislead the public by providing false details on the project. The US Military/Industrial complex understandably requires that these projects exist. One reported project is called “Aurora”.
