6. Wright Patterson Air Force Base – What’s Inside Hangar 18?
Home to Project Blue Book and the infamous Hangar 18, the Wright Patterson Airforce Base in Dayton, Ohio is yet another hub for conspiracy theories. What we know for sure goes on there is aviation technology research, and with 22,000 people employed and 6,000 personnel and their families living on-base, it seems like it would be difficult for flying saucers to be shuttled in and out without notice.
However, there is a large contingency that believes that after the Roswell crash, much of the wreckage of the UFOs and the alien bodies were taken to WPAFB and stored in a facility that came to be known as Hangar 18. The bodies of the aliens are said to be preserved in the “Blue Room.”
A more realistic explanation is that the CIA and Air Force used the flying saucer phenomenon and Project Blue Book as a disinformation campaign to cover up sightings of the U2 and SR-71 spy planes (and possibly stealth craft) that were being developed by the government in secret.
7. Area 51, aka “Groom Lake”
Unless you’ve been living in a cave without wi-fi for the last half century, you’ve already heard of Area 51. Area 51 is simultaneously one of the most cliched and most enigmatic subjects in American popular culture and has been since the Roswell incidents in the late forties. It begs the question: How could so little be known about something that is talked about so much? And the even more haunting question: If our government was secretly creating an atomic bomb in an underground city (the Manhattan Project) over 50 years ago, what epic deviousness could they be up to today?
Whether it’s in Area 51 itself or a different military installation, such as the nebulous Dulce base, it’s almost a certainty that the U.S. government is engaged in some high-level covert technological experiments. Therefore, when I say Area 51, I mean wherever the hell they’re doing whatever the hell they’re doing.
Ostensibly, this includes any of the following: alien experimentation, reverse engineering of alien spaceships recovered from Roswell, alien interbreeding, quantum teleportation, advanced artificial intelligence, high tech propulsion systems, and time travel. The most recent theory surmises that whatever was taken to Area 51 from Roswell actually concerned a failed Soviet experiment.
8. Plant 42 – Area 51’s Aircraft Supplier
In Top Secret Tourism, Harry Helms states there’s a fair chance that every top secret U.S. aircraft of the last four decades has been built 60 miles from downtown Los Angeles, at the mother of all secret aircraft military bases: Plant 42 in Palmdale. Spread out over 5,800 acres, Plant 42 is highly secured, meaning inquisitive civilians with cameras have absolutely no chance of even getting close to what goes on inside. In fact, if you even park on a street adjacent to the outermost edge you are likely to be harassed by law enforcement. It has been said that anything that is flown at Area 51 is built at Plant 42.
9. HAARP – Playing God with the Ionsphere
A surviving remnant of Reagan’s “Star Wars” initiative, the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) in Gakona, Alaska is one of the more controversial and mysterious military projects in recent history. The official objectives of this Air Force/Navy lovechild is to shoot high frequency beams through the ionosphere for scientific research purposes (meaning there are no military applications).
However, a litany of conspiracy theories, as well as some actual solid evidence, suggest more is going on there than mere adult science fair projects. Fringe theories range from the facility being used to test electromagnetic “mind control” signals to it being the home base of geoengineering and weather modifying technology. Others claim they are working on holographic technology that can be used to beam images into the sky. A rash of mysterious humming and booming sounds in the region have also been attributed to HAARP activity.
All that can be said for certain about HAARP is that there is some very strange “research” going on there that is directly applicable to defense systems, which falls under the category of “military”—which HAARP denies it’s a part of. Last year, reports began to surface that HAARP was being shut down. Others claimed HAARP as we know it has always been a front for the real facility, which is located in Poker Flats, North of Fairbanks, Alaska.
10. The Dulce Base – the real Area 51?
This is the only base listed here that may not exist. I’m giving in to my conspiracy side and including one of the more controversial government hideaways among fringe circles. According to these conspiracists, Area 51 is just a smokescreen for where the real above top secret experiments have been taking place: Dulce. The base is allegedly a secret alien underground facility under Archuleta Mesa on the Colorado-New Mexico border.
However, the government does not formally acknowledge the existence of the base and no one has been able to produce substantial proof of the aliens that exist there, though some have tried.
Excluded but on the shortlist:
Onizuka Air Force Base
Buckley Air Force Base
Peterson Air force, CO
