The Road to Area 51

Postby Pogotheostrich » Sat Apr 11, 2009 9:53 am

The problem is the myths of Area 51 are hard to dispute if no one can speak on the record about what actually happened there. Well, now, for the first time, someone is ready to talk—in fact, five men are, and their stories rival the most outrageous of rumors. Colonel Hugh "Slip" Slater, 87, was commander of the Area 51 base in the 1960s. Edward Lovick, 90, featured in "What Plane?" in LA's March issue, spent three decades radar testing some of the world's most famous aircraft (including the U-2, the A-12 OXCART and the F-117). Kenneth Collins, 80, a CIA experimental test pilot, was given the silver star. Thornton "T.D." Barnes, 72, was an Area 51 special-projects engineer. And Harry Martin, 77, was one of the men in charge of the base's half-million-gallon monthly supply of spy-plane fuels. Here are a few of their best stories—for the record:

Call me crazy but I personally love conspiracy theories and things like that.
Like who shot JFK. Aliens. AIDs.

I find conspiracy theories pretty fascinating. I've heard of most of the ones popular in American pop culture (including the AIDS theory), and while I give most of them next to zero credence, they're fun to discuss.

:-? Are there more stories on another page? All they did was talk about the declassified OXCART. I figured with a comment like that they would be talking about buttsex with big eyes.
