“For the first time in half a decade, Google Earth/Google Maps imagery of America’s clandestine flight test center known as Area 51 have been updated.
In the new shots, we can see small changes to the ever-expanding base — and one giant one.

I’ve closely followed the construction of the massive new hangar at the base’s remote southern end, and have speculated on what’s inside.
In the past, long-range photography by Area 51 watchers and sample imagery from Terraserver have shown the ongoing construction of the big structure.
But this Google imagery offers a much more comprehensive and accessible view of the base and its big new feature.

The hangar is 210 feet wide by 250 feet long and very high, and is the largest addition to the base in nearly a decade.

In 2006, another large hangar was constructed on the south end of the base’s main ramp facility, complete with an earthen berm built around its south eastern approaches.
This facility is known to house Northrop Grumman programs, including a high-flying penetrating spy drone loosely named the RQ-180.
Uncharacteristically, the USAF has actually admitted to this program’s existence.

The remoteness of this new facility — along with its large size and especially its height—make it a much more curious addition than the 2006 hangar.
Is it a massive scoot-and-hide shelter for large aircraft or possibly for a swarm of smaller ones?
This seems unlikely due to the quality of its construction and how tall it is.
Or was it built so far south due the sensitivity of the program it services?
Maybe its location has something to do with the volatile nature of the fuel the aircraft uses?
There are other visible additions to the base compared to the 2011 Google image, including a new engine test cell between the northern ramp and the runways, and a new smaller hangar building near where the chase and test pilot aircraft park”.

New satellite image also shows Area 51 employees’ parking lot (URS Terminal at Las Vegas McCarran International Airport) is still jam-packed on weekedays!!
(E.G. & G. was acquired by URS. URS, in turn, is now in under AECOM management)….there’re still 9 or 10 flights a day to (and from) Area 51, to TTR (Tonopah Test Range) and to other facilities in Nevada, Southern California as well as Utah:
