New hangar at the Area 51 North Ramp. It appears finished on the outside. An April, 2023 satellite image shows beginning construction. That satellite image shows that the hangar has three bays, each suitable for a fighter jet sized aircraft with a 65-85' wing span. That part of the ramp was previously used by the Groom F-16D's. It is also right next to Hangars 4-7 which are used by the Red Hats, the unit that flies and evaluates "acquired" foreign aircraft. More space needed for a new toy from Russia? Or China?
