The first location is a mock practice airfield for live air strikes in Range 74B. The aircraft and other vehicles are placed there as practice targets. There are several similar practice airfilds all over the NTTR.

The second location is the Tolicha Peak Electronic Combat Range (TPECR) operations facility.

To the best of my knowledge there is no secret Sandia underground facility. There are lots of tunnels and such on the NTS. They are leftovers from old nuclear tests, and are mostly sealed off. There is also an extensive underground nuclear test facility in the NTS. But it has nothing to do with John Lears supposed Sandia underground base. Public NTS tours go right by it, and the tour guide points out the above ground hoist for the elevator and other structures.
