US Reveled Declassified documents on Areal 51 Purpose UFOs

A newly declassified CIA papers reveal the truth about Nevada’s Area 51 and its secret mission, which was not to study UFOs, but to test the U-2 and other spy planes.

Atomic Energy Commission's (AEC) agreed to add the area to its real estate holdings, "and President Eisenhower also approved the addition of this strip of wasteland, known by its map designation as Area 51, to the Nevada Test Site.

The first U-2 test flight took place at Area 51 on Aug. 4, 1955, and over the years that followed; the site was used for training U-2 pilots.

The Groom Lake facility was also used for development of the U-2 spy plane's successors, including the Lockheed A-12 Oxcart and the D-21 Tagboard.

Area 51 served as a test site for the F-117 stealth fighter.
To this day, the area surrounding the facility has been closely guarded, and the airspace is off-limits to civilian air traffic.
