I was stationed at Nellis in the 60's and heard a similar story about a F-105(D) that landed somewhere out there......We heard a pilot had some kind of trouble and landed in a dry lake bed. Next thing he knew his plane was surrounded..... He was taken underground and questioned....In the mean time his plane was fixed (plenty of A&E's at Watertown huh?) and he was warned to tell no one of the place and sent on his way.......I said something about the story at dinner chow but no one thought anything of it......We of course knew nothing about A51 in them days......So your story and our story are probably the same incident.......Wild!
