10 Things You May Or May Not Know About Area 51!

It’s said that even the movements of a fly can be monitored in Area 51.

With motion sensors and desert camouflage wearing security contractors known as “cammo dudes” all over, that isn’t exactly that far-fetched of a claim.

Before it became known as Area 51, however, it was first called “Paradise Ranch” which was then later changed to simply as “The Ranch”.

The reason for this was so that employees and personnel working there wouldn’t have to make up lame excuses as to where they actually worked.

Back in 2013, the United States Government finally acknowledged the existence of the “mysterious” area known as Area 51.

Area 51’s airspace or R-4808 measure about 37 by 40 kilometres, which is a pretty huge strip of area if you think about it is as restricted as any airspace can get.

In fact, any unauthorized pilot caught flying above or through it faces charges from court martial, to dishonorable discharge and may even spend time in prison.
