Area 51 - Groom Lake, located in between the Nellis Air Force Bombing and Gunnery Range, in Rachel, Nevada, is home to Groom Lake, where a top-secret Air Force base is located. Many top-secret projects take place here (which don't stay top-secret for long). Groom Lake is the supposed testing grounds of Project Aurora, the Air Force's replacement for the SR-71 Blackbird and F-117a Stealth Fighter spy planes. Area 51 is also one of the three supposed places parts of the UFO that crashed in Roswell, New Mexico were shipped to.
Holloman AFB is located in New Mexico's Tularosa Basin between the Sacramento and San Andreas mountain ranges. The base is about 10 miles west of Alamogordo, New Mexico, on route 70/82; 90 miles north of El Paso, Texas; 70 miles east of Las Cruces, New Mexico.
99th Range Group - Nellis AFB operates, maintains, and develops the Nellis Air Force Ranges, commonly referred to as the Nellis Air Force Range (NAFR) and four geographically separated electronic scoring sites (ESS) located in Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, and Arkansas.
USAF Plant 42 in Palmdale hosts a variety of black projects.
30th Space Wing: In the course of fifty-four years (1941-1995) many changes have occurred along California's picturesque Central Coast, but none has been more significant or enduring than the establishment of Camp Cooke and its successor Vandenberg Air Force Base.
Activated in 1941, Camp Cooke was a U.S. Army training center for infantry and armored troops preparing for combat duty in World War II. After the war and a short period of inactivation, the installation was called up again for the Korean War in 1950. With the end of that conflict in 1953 the camp was again shutdown.
In 1957 Camp Cooke was transferred to the Air Force and in the proceeding year renamed Vandenberg Air Force Base. The base is operated by Air Force Space Command's 30th Space Wing. Its mission at Vandenberg is to 1) conduct space launch operations, 2) conduct flight tests of the nation's intercontinental ballistic missile force, 3) operate the Western Range that provides various instrumentation support for government and commercial space, missile, and aeronautical operations, and 4) provide host base support services for the Vandenberg AFB community.
