The Times of London reported on February 28 that a piece of film footage dating to 1964 provides proof that the elusive "Area 51" does exist, despite Pentagon denials.
The Times said the footage was uncovered by filmmaker Hugh McDaid while shooting "Robot Warriors," a documentary on unmanned aircraft. The film does not record details of the site but shows a scientist chalking on a blackboard the phrase "move out to Area 51."
According to McDaid, the film was part of a top-secret briefing for military and intelligence personnel. The scientist shown writing on the blackboard was Clarence "Kelly" Johnson, who designed the Lockheed U2 spy plane.
Area 51 is the site of a super-secret U.S. testing center for advanced aircraft, located at Groom Dry Lake in central Nevada, north of Las Vegas. The U.S Air Force continues to deny that the base exists, even though clear photos of Area 51 made by Russian spy satellites and U.S. photographers have circulated for several years.
According to the Times article, rumors that Area 51 may also be a testing site for alien technology are neither substantiated nor refuted by the newly discovered film footage.
