From my latest trip to Rachel:

- From the Powerlines Overlook we observed the test flight of a "Fastmover" out of Groom. We were able to record some of its radio traffic, where it is repeatedly referred to as "fastmover". More details and some audio clips coming up.

- The Janet airline has a new flight schedule and different callsigns. I have updated the schedule in our Info section accordingly.

- We have confirmed that Groom security now also uses dark gray Chevy 2500 4x4 pickup trucks. The Ford F-150's are still in use, but the old white Jeep Cherokees are a rare sight now. Photos coming up.

- There appears to be a new radar site near the North Gate. Photos coming up.

- New security cameras have been installed near the landing strip at Basecamp. Photos coming up.

- The Area 51 Research Center has been closed permanently. All signs have been removed. The trailer will be used as a private residence.
