A la guerra ya me llevan, madrecita   (They’re going to send me over to the War Zone, mom)

Ay te quedas sin tu hijo muy solita    (You’re going to be left alone, without me)

Sabra Dios si nos volveremos a ver    (God knows if we’re going to see each other again)


Si recibes un sobre retornado                  (If you receive a “return to sender” envelope)

De mi novia que no sabe donde estoy    (from my betrothed loved one)

Ay, le dices que me llevan de soldado    (Please tell her that they’re sending me as a soldier)

A las tierras lejanas ya me voy                 (To the far away places where I’ll be going)


Ya no llores, madrecita, por mi suerte        (Please don’t cry, mom, about my destiny)

Am I just another conspiracy theorist? – – the answer is no

Am I just another conspiracy theorist? – – the answer is no.

Nowadays it seems that the word “conspiracy theorist” has a derogatory connotation especially among the so-called main stream news media folks.   The general public also seems to equate “conspiracy theorist” as one who believes in wild, unfounded conspiracies.

In this sense, am I just another conspiracy theorist?   The answer is no, but it comes with an explanation which is at the very end of my comment.

I despise being branded as another proverbial conspiracy theorist because I am not.

I would rather describe myself as a conspiratologist and not a conspiracy theorist.

Unfortunately this word is not officially recognized in the English language.

Conspiratology is simply a study of all kinds of conspiracies, their history and their influence in society.


But do I believe that conspiracies exist?

The answer is yes!

Conspiracies  (especially criminal conspiracies)  have been around ever since the dawn of mankind.

Simply stated, whenever two or more persons conspire to cause detriment to someone else  (or a group of persons, whether small or large),  there is conspiracy.

However, there is one conspiracy that I firmly believe in, that is to say, the one that took place way before the dawn of mankind.

It is my religious belief  (and the belief of many Biblical scholars and Christians)  that eons and eons ago, it was Lucifer who conspired against God in a cosmic revolt in which he took a third of all cosmic, angelic entities to his side.    Lucifer became Satan, and his followers, fallen angels.

According to this religious belief, ever since then, this world is under Satan’s control, until Christ comes again to set up his earthly millennial kingdom.

Norio Hayakawa is from Yokohama, Japan, but calls

New Mexico

his home.  

He attended Spanish classes at the University of New Mexico, and graduated in 1970. During March 1990, Norio Hayakawa lead a Nippon TV crew in

Dulce, New Mexico,

where they interviewed the locals, including from the Jicarilla Apache, tribal officials, general townsfolk, and ranchers, about paranormal activity in the area.

In the past, he has been associated with film maker and activist, Anthony J. Hilder. Hayakawa and Hilder are responsible for starting the

Area 51 People’s Rally.  

The event was formed in protest against what was seen as the secrecy surrounding

Area 51.  

In 1999 the rally kicked off on the 5th of June at the Little A’Le’Inn in Rachel, Nevada.  The event began with a press conference.  There were various topics discussed which included the New World and Global Government.  Speakers at the event included Hilder, Ted Gunderson and Spanish speaking talk show Victor Camacho who came with a truck load of Latino listeners.  The following day a gathering of about 200 people were congregating by the signs of Groom Lake Road.  Demands were being made by Hilder and some others directed at the Area 51 authorities.  Hayakawa opened the 2000 Rally. The event was covered by KVBC and Channel 3 (NBC) with Hilder speaking to the gathering, with Joerg Arnu fielding the reporter’s questions.

Did Nazi Germany actually try to make a stealth fighter? – – the answer is no

(Click above photos for enlargement – – Horten 229 never made it off the ground, unlike its predecessors Horten 9  V1 – – H.IX V1 and Horten 9 V2 – – H.IX  V2)

“As the Second World War progressed, the Nazi Germany came up with numbers of inventive ways to bludgeon its enemies.  Much to the delight of the Fuhrer Adolf Hitler, the Wunderwaffe  (Miracle Weapon)  program, known to the west as the Wonder Weapons churned out some of the most ingenious hardware of World War II.  To the eyes of the modern observers, futuristic is one way to describe it.  The machines meant to dominate the air, land and sea were years ahead of its time.  This included the notorious V-weapons program, where ballistic missiles and unmanned flying bombs devastated London and Antwerp, and a collection of exotic vehicles.  And as the tide of war turned against the Nazi Germany, the program proved to be an important propaganda tool for convincing the public that a new game changing weapon is on the way.

One might wonder if the Nazi Germany could have won, if the Wunderwaffe program was implemented earlier. 

The answer is no

Though impressive, the technology used was still in its early days.  They were unreliable and expensive.  Development ate a lot of precious time, with the Reich wasting a lot of money in testing and evaluation.”  – – Mamerto Adan, Nov. 22, 2020, HUBPAGES

(Nevertheless, here is an interesting comment by this site’s frequent discussion contributor, Jon D:

“I see no logical way Germany could have build up such a formidable army with capable logistics on it’s own with such a gutted economy, in only a 20 year period.  There were powerful people behind it, many of which were here in the United States.  Although a lot of these advanced research projects took place in Germany at the time, the funding behind it is questionable, and as seen with Operation Paperclip, many of these scientists conveniently ended up in the United States after the war.”)

by Sebastian Roblin, THE NATIONAL INTEREST – – November 5, 2016


As everyone knows by now, Northrop Grumman is presently developing a second flying wing stealth bomber, the B-21 Raider, to succeed its B-2 Spirit.  Not a stealth fighter.


However, it was a pair of German brothers in the service of Nazi Germany that developed the first jet-powered flying wing—which has been dubbed, debatably, “Hitler’s stealth fighter.”

But maximizing speed and range, not stealth, was the primary motivation behind the bat-shaped jet plane.

Walter Horten was an ace fighter pilot in the German Luftwaffe, having scored seven kills flying as wingman of the legendary Adolf Galland during the Battle of Britain.

His brother Reimar was an airplane designer lacking a formal aeronautical education.

In their youth, the pair had designed a series of innovative tail-less manned gliders.

In 1943, Luftwaffe chief Herman Goering laid out the so-called 3×1000 specification for a plane that could fly one thousand kilometers an hour carrying one thousand kilograms of bombs with fuel enough to travel one thousand kilometers and back—while still retaining a third of the fuel supply for use in combat.

Such an airplane could strike targets in Britain while outrunning any fighters sent to intercept it.

Clearly, the new turbojet engines Germany had developed would be required for an airplane to attain such high speeds.

But jet engines burned through their fuel very quickly, making raids on more distant targets impossible.

The Horten brothers’ idea was to use a flying wing design—a tail-less plane so aerodynamically clean it generated almost no drag at all.

Such an airframe would require less engine power to attain higher speeds, and therefore consume less fuel.

Flying wing designs were not an entirely new idea and had been used before in both gliders and powered aircraft.

During World War II, Northrop developed its own high-performing XB-35 flying wing bomber for the U.S. military, though it failed to enter mass production.

Despite the aerodynamic advantages, the lack of a tail tended to make fly wing aircraft prone to uncontrolled yaws and stalls.

The Horten brothers were given the go-ahead to pursue the concept in August 1943.

They first built an unpowered glider known as the H.IX V1.

The V1 had long, thin swept wings made of plywood in order to save weight.

These “bell-shaped” wings compensated for yawing problem.

Lacking a rudder or ailerons, the H.IX relied upon “elevons” (combinations of ailerons and elevators) and two sets of spoilers for control.

The elevons could be moved differentially to induce roll, or together in the same direction to change pitch, while the spoilers were used to induce yaw.

Following successful tests of the V1 glider at Oranienberg on March 1944, the subsequent V2 prototype was mounted with two Jumo 004B turbojet engines nestled to either side of a cockpit pod made of welded steel tubing.

It also featured a primitive ejection seat and a drogue chute deployed while landing, while redesigned tricycle landing gear was installed to enable the plane to carry heavier loads.

The first test flight occurred on February 2, 1945.

The manta-shaped jet exhibited smooth handling and good stall resistance.

The prototype even reportedly beat an Me 262 jet fighter, equipped with the same Jumo 004 engines, in a mock dogfight.

But the testing process was cut short on February 18 when one of the V2’s jet engines caught fire and stopped mid-flight.

Test pilot Erwin Ziller performed a number of turns and dives in an effort to restart the engine, before apparently passing out from the fumes and spiraling his plane into the ground, mortally wounding him.

Regardless, Goering had already approved the production of forty flying wings, to be undertaken by the Gotha company, which mostly produced trainers and military gliders during World War II.

The production planes were designated Ho 229s or Go 229s.

Because of the Ho 229’s great speed—it was believed the production version would be able to attain 975 kilometer per hours—it was repurposed to serve as a fighter with a planned armament of two heavy Mark 103 thirty-millimeter cannons.

Construction of four new prototypes—numbered V3 throuh V6— was initiated, two of which would have been two-seat night fighters.

However, the Ho 229 never made it off the ground.

When American troops of VIII Corps rolled into the factory at Friedrichroda, Germany in April 1945, they found just the cockpit sections of the prototypes in various stages of development.

A single pair of corresponding wings was found 75 miles away.

The most complete of the four, the V3 prototype, was shipped back to the United States for study along with the wings, and can today be seen under restoration at the Udvar-Hazy Center of the United States Air and Space Museum in Chantilly, Virginia.

The Hortens were reassigned to draft specifications for a flying wing jet bomber with range enough to deliver an atom bomb to the east coast of the United States.

Their resulting schematics for the Horten H.XVIII “Amerika Bomber” flying wing were never realized, except arguably in the film Captain America [3].

Was the Ho 229 a stealth fighter?

One word you haven’t seen in this history so far is “stealth” — and that’s because there isn’t any documentation from the 1940s supporting the notion that the flying wing was intended to be a stealth aircraft.

And yet, the Hortens had stumbled upon the fact that a flying wing design lends itself to the sort of reduced radar cross-section ideal for a stealth plane.

Reimer Horten moved to Argentina after the war, and in 1950 wrote an article for the Revista Nacional de Aeronautica arguing that wooden aircraft would absorb radar waves.  Thirty years later, as the theory behind stealth aircraft became more widely known, Reimer wrote that he had intentionally sought to make the Horten flying wing into a stealth plane, claiming that he had even constructed the airframe using a special radar absorbent mixture of carbon, sawdust and wood glue without notifying his superiors.

Two tests were undertaken to determine the presence of the carbon dust, one of which supported his claim and the other that didn’t.

In general, historians are skeptical that stealth was a design goal from the outset.

In 2008, Northrop Grumman teamed up with the National Geographic channel to reconstruct a mockup of the Ho 229, which they tested for radar reflection, and then pitted against a simulation of the British Chain Home radar network.

Their findings were less than overwhelming — the flying wings would have been detected at a distance 80 percent that of a standard German Bf. 109 fighter.

The Northrop testers stressed that combined with the Ho 229’s much greater speed, this modest improvement would have given defending fighters too little time to react effectively.

But of course, the flying wing’s main feature was always supposed to be its speed, which could have exceeded the maximum speed of the best Allied fighters of the time by as much as 33 percent.

Detection time would not have mattered greatly if it could outrun everything sent to intercept it.

Furthermore, stealth would have had little usefulness in the fighter role the Ho 229 would actually have assumed, as the Allied daylight fighters ranging over Germany did not benefit from radars of their own.

The Ho 229 might have been a formidable adversary over the skies of World War II, but in truth the plane was far from ready for mass production by the war’s end.

While it seems a stretch to claim that the Ho 229 was intended to be a stealth aircraft, there’s little doubt that it pioneered design features that continue to see use in low-observable aircraft today.

‘Flying Wing’ UFO incident at Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico in 1950

by Chet Dembeck, August 27, 2021, UNKNOWN BOUNDARIES


Atomic Test Group Witnesses UFO in broad daylight, March 22, 1950 at Kirtland Air Force Base, Albuquerque, New Mexico


Here’s what happened:

Investigator Dan Wilson:

11:00 a.m.

Eleven members of the 4925th Test Group (Atomic) witnessed a UFO northwest of Kirtland AFB, New Mexico in broad daylight.

Heights 25,000 to 30,000′, described as about the size of a golf ball at arm’s length with the approximate shape of the “flying wing“, tan in color to brown on the edges.  Horizontal flight, extremely high speed, heading northwest, then turned north.  Out of sight in 5-9 seconds.

Investigator Fran Ridge:

The Armed Forces Special Weapons Command constructed two operational sites after World War II.  One was known as Site Able, located in the foothills of the Manzano Mountains, just east of Sandia Base.  Construction on Site Able started in 1946, with the first operational facilities activated on 04 April 1950.  The area to the east of the sighting position in this series of incidents and the time frame are very close, close enough for inclusion in the possible Nuclear Connection Projects file.  On 22 February 1952, Site Able was renamed Manzano Base.  These formerly classified documents were discovered on the Blue Book microfilm site by researcher, Daniel Wilson.  Information on the witnesses was found in a book by John D. Hardison, USAF retired.

“With top priority established, the 4925th was staffed with highly experienced people.  Bomber, fighter, and chopper pilots, triple-rated bombardiers (Bomb/Navigator/Radar), staff officers, nuclear project engineers (military and civilian), depot-level modification personnel, aerial cameramen, photo lab technicians, bomb leading specialists, crew chiefs, and crews.  Col. Ritland “welded” these pros into a highly sharp TEAM. If there ever was an ELITE outfit, the 4925th was it”.



(CLICK ABOVE FOR ENLARGEMENT – – for more clarity)

It is of utmost importance to bear in mind that this 1950 UFO incident was not the only UFO incident at Kirtland Air Force Base.   There have been many other incidences at the base, particularly near the Manzano Base areas.

Norio Hayakawa, unorthodox UFO ‘conspiratologist’

Norio Hayakawa, born in 1944 in Yokohama, Japan, is an American activist who lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

He was the director of Civilian Intelligence Network, a loosely-knit citizens’ oversight committee on government accountability.

He has appeared as a guest on Coast to Coast AM multiple times, and is most known for his UFOlogy investigations in and around New Mexico and the American Southwest.

He graduated from the University of Albuquerque in 1970 majoring in Spanish and later taught in a public high school just outside of Phoenix, Arizona.

In February, 1990, Norio Hayakawa accompanied a Japanese TV crew to the outer perimeters of Area 51, following a lengthy interview with Bob Lazar at his residence in Las Vegas.

The following month, in March 1990, Norio took the Nippon TV crew to Dulce, New Mexico, where they interviewed the locals, including the Jicarilla Apache tribal officials, general townsfolk and ranchers, about paranormal activity in the area.

In the past, he has been associated with film maker and activist, Anthony J. Hilder.  Hayakawa and Hilder were responsible for starting the Area 51 People’s Rally in 1998.  The event was formed in protest against what was seen as the secrecy surrounding Area 51, especially the plight of a considerable number of former workers who were contaminated and sickened with toxic chemicals while working on stealth programs at the base.

Norio has been involved in UFO research since around 1961.

However he says that “even though the UFO phenomenon seems to exist, so far there is no absolute, tangible, credible documentary evidence whatsoever that we have ever been visited by actual physical extraterrestrial biological entities in any actual physical spacecraft of any kind.”

His alternative explanations to this phenomenon can be found in his three top articles that he wrote:





Besides being an investigator, Hayakawa spent many years as a licensed funeral director in Los Angeles.  After his retirement in 2008, he became a professional entertainer, musician (keyboardist) and singer, performing live music with his One-man band in various small venues in New Mexico.

“UFOs – – Demonic activity and elaborate hoaxes meant to deceive mankind” – – written by Bro. Michael Dimond

From THE OBSERVER, December 8, 2021:


This 54-page tract written by Brother Michael Dimond  (of the Most Holy Family Monastery)  is little more than a pamphlet with a glossy cover, but the author uses the limited space to dive deeply into the subject matter and its religious implications. 

The work’s overall message is familiar.  Dimond agrees that a number of reported UFOs have no rational explanation, perform impossible maneuvers, and generally thumb their noses at the established laws of physics.  They show up in photographs when they feel like it, “change size or shape in front of people;” “instantly appear and disappear;” and display the ability to “pass through physical objects.”  These behaviors lead him to conclude that UFOs are a “spiritual phenomenon” and not part of the physical world.

Instead of quoting chapter and verse from the Bible to make his case, Dimond tailors his message to the ‘UFO crowd.’  The book’s bibliography suggests an impressive shelf of UFO-related texts and Dimond lists hundreds of citations containing classic material.  He starts by citing  FLYING SAUCER REVIEW’s  editor—Gordon Creighton—a prominent UFO investigator and author who doubted the interstellar nature of extraterrestrials: “There seems to be no evidence yet that any of these craft or beings originate from outer space … The great bulk of these phenomena are what is called satanic.”

Dimond goes on to quote from a trinity of important UFO researchers to support his conclusion that anomalous aerial vehicles aren’t tangible ‘nuts-and-bolts’ craft.  He draws from the work of Jacques Vallée, J. Allen Hynek, and John Keel—explaining how each one evolved their answers to the UFO question over time—eventually gravitating toward interdimensional theories instead of aliens from another planet.

Vallée came to reject the extraterrestrial hypothesis after decades of data-driven research.  He entertained the idea of extra-dimensional malevolent “trickster” entities as the progenitors of UFOs, writing in  MESSENGERS OF DECEPTION (2008)  that the mysterious visitors were “helping to create a new form of belief … realization of that age-old dream: salvation from above.”  This depiction is exactly why some Christian faith systems believe that UFOs are harbingers of Christ’s return.  Alien saviors arriving with a new religion sounds a lot like various warnings found in the Bible about the end of days: “In the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils” (1 Tim 4:1).

UFO investigator John Keel was also skeptical about the concrete nature of UFOs, calling them “transmogrifications of energy” and “not permanent constructions of matter.”  After identifying other instances of supernatural high strangeness occurring alongside UFO sightings, he came to suspect that witnesses weren’t observing spaceships from another galaxy.  Keel felt that an extra-dimensional presence was responsible, speculating that modern encounters might be “minor variations of the age-old demonological phenomenon.”

Some Christian scholars argue that the grey beings associated with UFOs are just Lucifer’s attempt to create life.

Dr. J. Allen Hynek expressed similar beliefs about the reality of unidentified flying objects after spending years running down UFO reports for the U.S. Air Force’s Project Blue Book.  He concluded that there was an unknown force contributing to the confusion: “It seems clear to most of us that UFOs don’t obey the rules of the present day scientific game … All these things seem to call for a Para physics, a metaphysics, of a transcendental physics.”

Dimond also puts forth unique connections between common UFO experiences and the biblical Satan.  He compares abduction scars to “the mark of the beast,” a symbol that the Bible claims will be given to nonbelievers in the end-times.  He also points out how ‘Reptilian ETs’ are reminiscent of the devil’s serpent form.  He later compares “the Grays” to demonic entities, noting how both are reputed to emit a foul odor.  Dimond includes Whitley Strieber’s depiction of the beings from his book, COMMUNION, emphasizing how Strieber “wrestled with the idea that his communion was with demonic entities rather than ET’s.”  Unsurprisingly to Dimond, Strieber claimed ‘the grays’ also smelled bad—“like sulfur.” (Bigfoot allegedly stinks too, but that’s another pamphlet.)

Rather than classify every abduction or close encounter as evidence of a cosmic battle between good and evil, the author portrays a large number of UFO sightings as misidentified natural objects or human inspired hoaxes.  A substantial portion of his treatise is devoted to a thorough debunking of the 1975 Travis Walton abduction case.  He spends 11 of the book’s 54-pages deconstructing Walton’s narrative of being taken by alien beings in front of witnesses.  Unlike author D.M. Pottenger, who believed that Walton was taken by demonic entities posing as aliens, Dimond exposes the event as a lie contrived for money.

The ‘Roswell UFO crash’ is likewise dismissed as nothing more than a weather balloon  (*Project Mogul)  that went down in the desert.  Dimond peppers his retelling with damaging quotes from Air Force investigator Jesse Marcel, one of the first people to handle wreckage recovered from the crashed object, who told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that he had mostly collected “patches of tinfoil and rubber” while scouring the area for a “weather device.”  Dimond blames Roswell’s pop-culture appeal on “ET believer Stanton Friedman,” claiming if Friedman hadn’t interviewed Marcel 30 years after-the-fact, the public would never have known about the incident at Roswell.

Cattle mutilations, MJ-12, Nazca lines, Area 51, alien autopsies, crop circles—they’re all con-jobs or purposeful misinterpretations according to Brother Dimond.  Even though he assigns terrestrial causes to purported paranormal incidents and rejects a majority of sightings as earth-bound or man-made hoaxes, the author comes around to the same conclusion as many other Christian writers: UFOs are “false apparitions produced by Satan.”

My thoughts on the late Glenn Campbell, former Area 51 researcher and activist

by Norio Hayakawa, December 15, 2021:

May Glenn Campbell Rest In Peace!!
Many of us knew he had been fighting for his life the past few years.  

After his condition deteriorated, following his latest recurrence of lymphoma, he passed away on December 13, 2021.   


When Glenn first came in 1993 from the East Coast to settle down in Rachel in order to find out more about Area 51, he was initially met with suspicion by lots of residents of that tiny community.  Nevertheless, Glenn set up his “Area 51 Research Center” in his small trailer.

An animosity of sort was soon created between the owners of the Little A-le-inn and Glenn Campbell.  

Glenn later on married a resident of Rachel and eventually moved to Las Vegas.

The fact that Glenn had married a resident of Rachel  (Travis family’s friend)  infuriated Joe Travis of the Little A-le-inn.

Glenn was in Rachel in 1993 when the  ULTIMATE UFO SEMINAR  was held at the parking lot of the Inn in which Bob Lazar was the main speaker.  This seminar was organized by Gary Schultz and myself.  It was held under a huge military tent at the parking lot.  There were close to 200 people in attendance.  Joe Travis later told us that he had “borrowed” this military tent from the “base”.  Glenn did not attend this seminar.  Instead he organized a small meeting of folks who were skeptical of Bob Lazar’s claims.  He held this meeting in Rachel around the same time as the seminar.

During Glenn’s stay in Rachel, I met him and got acquainted with him.  To me he was a soft-spoken gentleman and a true scholar.

Glenn was a realist and he played a major role in bringing up Area 51 to the major news media in the mid 1990s.

Later on, I came to the similar conclusion about Area 51.  There was nothing “Alien” about Area 51.  It was no longer an issue worth pursuing.

Even though a lot of folks described Glenn as somewhat eccentric, I had a high respect for Glenn.

My realistic thoughts about Area 51


By Norio Hayakawa, November 26, 2021:

For me, it all began this way:

What got me first interested in Area 51 in 1987 was when I received from a Los Angeles-based writer named Bill Moore a copy of a satellite photo of Groom Lake taken by the Russians.  He sent me a ten-page research paper on the secretive military base.  I was quite fascinated by it.  Subsequently I met Bill Moore at one of his lectures in L.A.  In the same year, I attended a presentation given by Bill Steinman who had written a book entitled “The Crash at Aztec” in which a chapter was devoted also to the mysterious base in Nevada.

In October of 1988 I had an opportunity to watch an interesting two-hour syndicated TV program produced by FOX television entitled “UFO Cover-Up Live” in which Area 51 was briefly mentioned.  Also in October of 1988, a researcher by the name of Tal Levesque (a.k.a. Jason Bishop) showed me an interesting ad for Amoco Oil Company that appeared on page 50 of Aviation Week & Space Technology magazine in which it was promoting a new technology based on new composite materials that would “revolutionize” the aviation industry.  A weird thing was that there was a full-page color “portrait” of a grey “alien” right across from the page, i.e., on page 51.  A strange synchronicity indeed!

In the summer of 1989 I was listening to a late-night Las Vegas radio talk show  (the Billy Goodman show , which I could catch in L.A. area)  in which an alleged former government scientist named Bob Lazar was appearing almost nightly, talking about his work at a secret base just south of Area 51.

In early November of 1989 I made my first trip to Rachel, Nevada.  When I arrived there that evening, the Rachel Bar & Restaurant  (now known as the Little A-le-Inn)  was filled with people and was quite noisy.  There was a large party given by Billy Goodman.  Billy Goodman had come to Rachel with a huge chartered bus filled with his listeners who were interested in going near the place where Bob Lazar was talking about, even though Rachel was 25 miles north of Area 51.

In 1989 I also attended a MUFON conference in Las Vegas in which a wide array of “controversial personalities” such as John Lear, Bill Cooper, Bill English and Bill Moore were all giving presentations.  I was totally fascinated by all these events and personalities.  However, those days were my days of gullibility and immaturity.

In December of 1989 I was contacted by Nippon Television (NTV) of Japan to help produce a two-hour special program on Area 51 that was to be shown in Japan.  On February 21 of 1990, I took the Nippon Television team to Bob Lazar’s residence in Las Vegas to interview the so-called former “government scientist”.  After the 4-hour interview, Bob Lazar gave us instructions how to get to the point where we would probably see a test flight of the “craft”.

At sundown on Wednesday, February 21, the television crew of 8 and I set up several tripods right at the now-famous “black mailbox” at Highway 375  (at the 29 and a half mile marker, the so-called Mail Box Road).  We witnessed and documented on film what appeared to be a test flight of “something” over the Groom Mountains.  I was totally fascinated by what we all saw from a distance.

Subsequently the two-hour documentary on Area 51 was broadcast nationwide in Japan in March of 1990 and generated lots of attention there, when Area 51 was not even a household name in the United States at that time!  That was the beginning of my ten-year span of involvement in the research on Area 51.

I really wanted to get to the bottom of this mysterious base………what truly was going on over there.  Was there any extraterrestrial technology there?  However, those years were my years of naivete and immaturity.  

I began a loosely-knit networked called the Civilian Intelligence Network, together with Gary Schultz of Santa Monica.  Since then I made countless trips to the perimeter areas, including climbing atop White Sides to view the facility from the distance in 1991, 1992 and 1993.  I also had an opportunity to Climb atop the Freedom Ridge very early in 1994 to view the facility before it was placed off limits to the public.

(CLICK ABOVE FOR ENLARGEMENT – – photo taken years ago by C.V. “U.S. Marine Corps for hire”)

In December of 1990 I even organized and led a 25-car caravan to Area 51 together with Gary Schultz and invited an L.A. Times reporter to cover the event.  The article appeared in March of 1991 in L.A. Times.  

In May of 1991 a group of seven vehicles that I was leading came under dangerous harassment by a military helicopter (CH-53) on Groom Lake Road.  During those years, the anonymous security vehicles were all large Broncos and the omnipresence of security vehicles on various dirt roads on public land was quite intimidating.  We also had quite a number of run-ins with the Lincoln County Sheriff Deputies.  At that time Freedom Ridge was not known.

In 1992 I co-sponsored the first Need-To-Know Seminar at the Little A-Le-Inn with Gary Schultz.  The Little A-Le-Inn was filled with people  (standing room only)  that evening.  The only speakers at the Seminar were Gary Schultz and yours truly.  However, among the audience that memorable evening were John Lear, George Knapp, Bob Lazar, Bill Cooper, Sean Morton, Lincoln County Sheriff Dahl Bradfield and a whole wide array of personalities all under the same roof intensely listening to our presentation.

In those days I was very much into conspiracy theories.  However, I had a very different take on the subject matter.  My belief then was that there was nothing “alien” about Area 51, that the so-called “extraterrestrial” connection to Area 51 was just a convenient cover story brilliantly concocted and promoted by the “government” to conceal developments of new military weapons systems integrated with avionics and aeronautics technology.  Nevertheless I was categorized as part of the fringe personalities.  

In 1993 Gary Shultz and I organized the first Ultimate Seminar in Rachel.  There were about 250 people that came from all parts of the U.S. for that seminar.  Bob Lazar was the main speaker.  He drove in from Las Vegas with his Corvette and his license number was MJ-12!  That seminar became his last public appearance, and remained so until fairly recently.  It was held at the parking lot of the Little A-Le-Inn under a huge military tent which Joe Travis later on, I believe, said that he had “borrowed” from the base!

It was around that year that Glenn Campbell, a computer analyst from the East Coast had settled down in Rachel to find out what was going on at Area 51, hearing all the commotions about the goings-on in Nevada.  He subsequently made an extensive research on the whole area, and became a major source of coverage in the major media concerning the “secret base”.  Glenn Campbell “discovered” the spot known as Freedom Ridge, the view of the facility from which was slightly closer than from White Sides. The rest is history.

Therefore I was one of several Area 51 activists during the pre-Glenn Campbell years, the years when Area 51 was still not a popular “secret” base as it is now.  Towards the late nineties my interest shifted to more realistic issues surrounding Area 51.  I became more interested in the plight of former workers at Groom Lake.

In 1998 I organized the first People’s Rally at Area 51 to bring attention to the media the situation of the workers and other realistic relevant issues.

In January of 2000, I decided to “retire” from further active research on Area 51.  I also began to abandon conspiratorial theories, realizing that Area 51 is a vital research, development and testing complex that is here to stay, no matter what.   It is so important to our national defense interests.

I met Joerg Arnu in San Jose in 1999 when I was giving one of my last public presentations on Area 51.  It was such a great pleasure to have met Joerg.  What a tremendous honor it is for me to pass along this seemingly endless but interesting research and pursuit on the nation’s fascinating premier R & D and test base to Joerg Arnu and his Dreamland Resort site http://www.dreamlandresort.com  and his excellent staff.

It has become the world’s largest, reality-based public online resource on Area 51 !!

Untold secrets of Manzano underground base in Albuquerque, New Mexico – – fact or fiction?

(CLICK ABOVE FOR ENLARGEMENT – – Northeast end of the Manzano underground base with 3 tiers of electric fences, almost right next to the Four Hills community of Albuquerque – – the base was supposedly totally closed down in 1992 – – photo by Norio Hayakawa)

FROM AN ANONYMOUS SOURCE – – November 15, 2021


“I’m a lifelong Albuquerque resident.  I appreciate the work you’ve put into researching and uncovering the various mysterious topics you discuss.

About three years ago, a close relative of mine, a young man, was working a job as a construction laborer with a local firm, which in 2018 was contracted to do work on KAFB.  He worked that job for about three weeks.  At the time, I didn’t pay much attention to what he told me after coming home from work each evening, but a few years later I took much more interest, due to the nature of his descriptions of what he encountered.

The following is an essay I wrote, based on his direct eyewitness testimony, which also includes my attempts to explain, in the form of hypothesizing, the larger purpose of the facility that he visited.  I call this The Able Prime Narrative; at the time it was built, Manzano Base was known as Site Able.


I’ve tightly held onto this information for some time, but am sharing it with you because it’s one of the most astonishing factual tales I’ve yet encountered, and I trust your judgement in regard to what you might do with this information.  As you undoubtedly know, there are many unverifiable, or unreliable, stories that have circulated through the UFO subculture community.  This story is one of the most factual I’ve encountered, due to the veracity of this young man’s testimony.

The facts as described by this young man, who I call The Eyewitness, are in my view entirely trustworthy; he’s too young and naive to have a deep enough understanding of these things to have made them up, nor has he shown any interest in the past with these topics.  My attempts at explaining what this story implies remains my own speculation, and hence is subject to my own errors of judgement; but his account is by my estimation entirely trustworthy.  I’ve also brought a close friend of mine into confidence of this story, who has, together with me, interviewed The Eyewitness and has verified the veracity of his story and lack of any obvious contradictions or counter-factual information that might compromise the story’s integrity.



Able Prime is based on facts, of an actual eyewitness account from a very reputable source, of an apparent underground complex located within the boundaries of Kirtland Air Force Base (KAFB) in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

(CLICK ABOVE FOR ENLARGEMENT – – photo by Norio Hayakawa, Nov. 17, 2021)

The veracity of Able Prime is based on the testimony of a firsthand source who has been in this underground facility multiple times over the course of three weeks; said source possesses a high degree of believability, due to his naiveté of military and aviation-related subject matter; his consistency in recounting these events over multiple interview sessions; and personal knowledge of this individual over the entirety of his life.  Said individual has not demonstrated in the past any interest in outlandish subject matter such as conspiracy theories or UFOs.  He has also remained tight-lipped about what he witnessed, only revealing to me the details after much conversation.  There does not appear to be any personal motive of financial gain or fame exhibited by this source.  The identity of this source will be kept in confidence and only referred to as The Eyewitness.

During the Manhattan Project of WWII, Kirtland Field in Albuquerque was operated by the US Army Air Corp and employed as a point of demarcation for materiel and personnel involved with the build-up of atomic munitions on Tinian Island, in preparation for the atomic bombing raids over Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, which directly contributed to the ending of hostilities and unconditional surrender of Japan.

After the war, Z Division of Los Alamos was moved to Kirtland Field and became Sandia Base, a separate entity commanded by a series of US Army and Air Force generals.  The facility rapidly expanded to become the nexus of what is known today as Sandia National Laboratory, the primary center of nuclear weapons development during the Cold War. In 1971, Kirtland Field and Sandia Base were merged into Kirtland AFB.

In the late 1940s a facility began to be constructed inside the mountains on the eastern boundary of Sandia Base that became known as Manzano Base, or Site Able, one of six such sites located around the US built to stockpile the nation’s nuclear weapons arsenal.  Site Able was special in that, not only was it the first such site, but it was the primary assembly facility used to construct the early plutonium fission weapons, based on the WWII Fat Man design, known as the Mark 4.  During this time, plutonium and uranium weapons components were cast and machined at Los Alamos, delivered to Sandia Base and assembled, along with non-nuclear components from other facilities, in an underground assembly factory in Manzano Base.

The Mark 4 design was assembled by hand, in kit form, from discrete blocks of high explosive lenses, upon which detonators and other components were added, to form the completed weapon, minus the core itself, which was only inserted into the weapon during final delivery by bomber aircraft to its target.  Assembled weapons were stored in the Manzano facility, minus their cores, which were stored in separate, lead-lined “bird cage” containers.

(CLICK ABOVE FOR ENLARGEMENT – – The overall layout of Manzano and Kirtland AFB proper, including the warehouse entrance on the east side of Manzano, the former Boeing Airborne Laser Hangar, and KUMMSC)



During the height of the Cold War, the existence of Manzano Base was a poorly kept secret among the children of base workers.  It was commonly discussed, on the school grounds in northeast Albuquerque, that a “secret” underground base existed in the Four Hills area of southeast Albuquerque, since many of these children had parents who worked either directly in Manzano Base proper, or on Sandia Base.

In 1992, the Kirtland Underground Munitions and Maintenance Storage Complex (KUMMSC) was activated on KAFB, south and west of the old Manzano Base, and has since become the largest repository of nuclear weapons in the US arsenal.  Since then, a story was published in the local Albuquerque Journal newspaper about Manzano Base, its former purpose, and how it had since become (supposedly) idled, used only for storage of non-nuclear materiel.

The author has become aware of a book  (“Raven Rock: The Story of the U.S. Government’s Secret Plan to Save Itself – – While the Rest of Us Die“, by Garrett M. Graff)  written about the history of the NORAD (North American Air Defense Command) facility, located in Cheyenne Mountain, south of Colorado Springs, Colorado, which indicated that during its design phase a nearly identical mock-up facility was built within the Manzano Base complex, southeast of Albuquerque.

The author is also aware of a firsthand account, from a family friend, an independent contractor skilled in computer networks, who claimed to have been working at an underground computer complex “inside the mountain” directly after the events of September 11, 2001, in a supporting role maintaining computer network equipment.

(CLICK ABOVE FOR ENLARGEMENT – – A closer view of Manzano, with the warehouse entrance on the right and the presumed secondary entrance on the left.   The alignment of the walls of the warehouse point directly to the secondary building.   They are about a mile apart.)




The Eyewitness was working for a local construction contractor in the 2018 time frame when a job was issued on KAFB.  He and his crew entered the base from the Louisiana Gate, drove east to Wyoming Blvd, then south and east, past the base golf course, to the security entrance of the Manzano Base complex.  They were directed to drive on a road around the southern edge of the complex, to the eastern side, where they arrived at a warehouse building with a light-blue roof.  The crew parked in the main parking lot, where they were met by security personnel, who told them to leave all cell phones, electronics and cameras in their truck, and fill out a form describing in detail all of the tools and material they would be bringing into the facility.

Immediately across the loop road from this warehouse building is the entrance to Factory 3, one of three such nuclear assembly factories once located in Manzano.

Having complied with the requests, they were escorted into the building through a door on the west-facing side, where they entered an elevator, that was described by The Eyewitness as of a “wire cage” type freight elevator, whose entrance faced west, toward the mountain, and began their descent that lasted for “three to five minutes.”

Once their three- to five- minute descent was completed, they exited the elevator in a deep underground, concrete-lined facility that extended into the distance toward the west, under the mountain.

The Eyewitness described the feeling of being in the facility as if one were deep underground inside Carlsbad Caverns, and that it felt cold.

Before them was a long, tall, concrete hallway-like structure that extended into the distance.  The walls were made from large sections of rectangular concrete, embedded with a grid of holes.  The ceiling was as high “as if standing on the basketball court of the UNM Pit arena and looking up to the ceiling.”  The floor of the structure curved gently upward, in an arc, such that the other end of the facility could not be seen.  To the left of the main hallway were a series of rooms that had been built of metal stud framing, that needed interior finishing work completed.  The freight elevator was used to deliver construction materials, tools and supplies from ground level, down into the facility.

The ceiling of the long hallway was described as “corrugated concrete,” similar to the kind of reinforced concrete structures seen under freeway overpass bridges.  Between the ridges of reinforced concrete were brackets extending downward, from which lighting fixtures were attached.  The Eyewitness estimated the height of the hallway as around 50 feet, and the width about 200 feet.

Parked in two neat rows along either side of the hallway were dozens of aircraft, oriented diagonally facing away from the entrance.  The row of aircraft on the left side had wide, flat jet engine exhaust ducts and a pair of canted vertical stabilizers.  They were dark gray, with no markings other than, under the rear horizontal stabilizers, a sequence of 7 or 8 digits, preceded by the “#” (hashtag or pound) symbol.  There was estimated to be 25-30 of these aircraft visible.

Because of his unfamiliarity with military aircraft, the author showed The Eyewitness a series of aircraft images, from which he identified the YF-23 prototype as being the closest to what he observed.

The row of aircraft on the right side of the structure were parked similarly to those on the left, diagonally facing away from the entrance, and were described as being black and triangular.  There appeared to be an equal number of them as the “YF-23“ type, extending into the distance.

In attempting to identify this second type of aircraft, the author showed The Eyewitness images of the F-117 stealth fighter, but he indicated that the type of aircraft he observed were not shaped with flat facets as with the F-117, but instead were smooth and curved, with a central hump that reminded him of images of the B2 stealth bomber, but smaller and with a triangular plan-form.

In each of his visits to this facility that occurred over a period of three weeks, The Eyewitness and his crew worked on the interior finishing of the office-like rooms to the left of the long hallway.  On the last visit, when they were preparing to exit via the elevator, the security personnel informed them of a “security breach,” and directed them to wait by the elevator while other security teams went topside.  After a period of about 30 minutes they were then permitted to depart via the elevator up to ground level, from where they exited the facility and the base.

Another detail described by The Eyewitness was during the elevator rides, they would periodically pass light fixtures in the concrete elevator shaft, visible through the extruded metal sides of the elevator car, implying a series of other floors or levels in the facility.  However, The Eyewitness did not at the time count the number of floors, but his feeling is that it was dozens of floors, at least.



Whatever facilities are currently situated under the Four Hills of Manzano Base, it is assumed the majority were built in the late-1940s and into the ‘50s, prior to the era of aerial surveillance by high-flying aircraft, or satellite surveillance, hence they may yet possess a higher degree of security than newer-built facilities.  Of specific interest to the author is how such a facility operates, given the implication of deep underground aircraft storage requiring access to both hangars and runways.

Fortunately for the researcher, we live in an era of readily accessible satellite imagery.  The author has examined in detail satellite imagery of KAFB, via Google Earth, and has found circumstantial evidence of specific structural alignments, visible from the surface, that imply possible answers to how the Manzano facility functions.



The Eyewitness described the freight elevator, that connects the surface warehouse building to the underground facility, as being orthagonal with the building’s walls.  Underground, the elevator is also orthagonal with the eastern end of the long hallway-like structure.  In addition, The Eyewitness describes the long hallway as extending straight into the distance, away from the elevator toward the northwest, under the mountain.

Using Google Earth, by extending a datum line from the blue-roofed warehouse building in a northwesterly direction, parallel to its east/west axis, the datum line extends about a mile under the mountain to a position adjacent to the western fence-line of the Manzano area, directly under another warehouse-like building.

It is conjectured by the author that this second building serves as a secondary access point, via elevator, to the western end of the facility, perhaps used as an emergency exit, and perhaps also feeding electrical power to the underground facility, as there appears to be a transformer substation located just adjacent to the north side of this building.

The secondary building, a mile west of the primary, does not share its alignment with the datum line, however.  By properly orienting the walls of the secondary building in Google Earth, another datum line can be extended, parallel to that building’s east/west axis, another three miles to the west, where it intersects almost exactly with an aircraft hangar providing direct access to the runway system of KAFB.

This hangar is itself oriented to the main east/west runway of KAFB, and is the only aircraft hangar on this end of the base, and the closest hangar to the Manzano area complex.  This hangar is the (former) Boeing Airborne Laser facility.

(CLICK ABOVE FOR ENLARGEMENT – – Area marked with yellow (not the arrow) – – Boeing Airborne Laser Facility and Hangar area)

The author conjectures that a three mile-long underground taxiway corridor connects the Manzano facility at the east, to the aircraft hangar three miles west, via an aircraft elevator located under the hangar.

(CLICK ABOVE FOR ENLARGEMENT – – Details of the Boeing ABL hangar, and the William B. Davis Advanced Laser facility adjacent to it.  There’s also Pad 4, to the east, where aircraft are loaded with nuclear weapons from KUMMSC, via the curved road below.  The alignment of the walls of the secondary building in the middle photo point directly to the Boeing ABL hangar.)


Comparing elevation data (available from online topographic maps) between the blue-roofed warehouse building at Manzano (5741 feet above MSL) and the Boeing Airborne Laser hangar (5298 feet above MSL), there is an elevation change of 443 feet.  Assuming the aircraft elevator under the Boeing ABL hangar is, say, 50 feet deep, this implies that the facility below Manzano could be 443 + 50 = 493 feet under the mountain, about consistent with a “3 to 5 minute” ride in a slow-moving freight elevator.

Further examination of KAFB satellite imagery reveals the KUMMSC facility, located south of the datum line connecting Manzano and the hangar, to be aligned almost exactly orthogonal to the same datum line, implying a possible other underground connecting corridor to KUMMSC.



The existence of a deep underground aircraft facility, verified by a reliable eyewitness, with no obvious access to runway facilities except via an implied underground corridor and elevator, begs multiple questions.

The depth of the facility, deep under a mountainous installation formerly used to protect nuclear weapons from attack, along with the stealth nature of the aircraft types observed, suggests several possibilities.

Given that these aircraft are not publicly known to exist, their location deep under the protection of a mountain may be to warehouse them for some eventual use, perhaps as some clandestine fourth branch of the nuclear triad; a nuclear pitchfork.  Given their location adjacent to, and aligned with, the KUMMSC nuclear weapons repository, perhaps they would be deployed on some long-distance bombing attack, in the event of assumption of hostilities during a nuclear exchange.

Another possibility is that they are being preserved to provide aerial dominance during a post-nuclear war phase, when the conventional air forces might have been decimated during the conflict.

It is also possible they have already been employed in various conventional conflicts.  Consider KAFB itself.  Sharing a common runway with the civilian Albuquerque International Sunport, civilian air traffic all but disappears late into the evening; meanwhile, air traffic over the rest of New Mexico remains scant during the early morning hours after midnight.  This leaves KAFB open for clandestine flights departing and arriving under the cover of darkness, and a cooperative FAA.  Aircraft can depart, fly long distances via aerial refueling, to arrive at their target coordinates halfway across the globe under the cover of nightfall; then return to KAFB under the cover of the next evening, to be sequestered away, deep under the mountain.

Advanced aircraft require constant maintenance in order to be flightworthy.  Hydraulic and engine systems need to be maintained on a regular basis.  Pilots require constant practice, in simulators and actual aircraft, in order for the weapons system to have any utility in warfare.  It is assumed by the author that periodic clandestine flights must be ongoing from the former Boeing ABL hangar on KAFB, and also that other aircraft facilities  (Edwards AFB, Nellis AFB, etc.)  may be used in training and support of these activities.



The suspect hangar that may contain the terminus of an underground aircraft elevator contains no external visual identification, other than an illegible round sign or plaque above its west-facing employee entrance.  There are, however, a number of vehicles parked in the adjacent parking lot, so some current activity is implied.  Adjacent to the hangar is a smaller, more modern appearing building bearing a sign indicating the Richard W. Davis Advanced Laser Facility.  An Internet search yields negative results for the building itself, but its namesake is an important figure in the early history of the Airborne Laser (ABL) project.  In the rear of this building are a number of large compressed gas cylinders and liquid chemical containers, indicating the facility seems to support some degree of advanced laser work; but the size of the building seems too small to support such activity.  It is the author’s conjecture that this laser facility may be largely underground.

It is assumed that this aircraft hangar may have supported the early years of the Airborne Laser project, including housing the early test aircraft, but that this project’s later phases may now be based elsewhere, thus leaving the hangar available for other purposes.  In addition, more recent research has involved solid-state lasers, rather than the chemical COIL (carbon dioxide iodine laser) using in the ABL program.



Given the secretive nature of the Manzano facility, and the history of other projects such as the U2 and A12 aircraft programs, the possibility exists that such facilities are not operated by the overt US Air Force itself, but other, more secretive, agencies. Evidence for this comes from The Eyewitness observing that there were no conventional USAF markings on the aircraft he observed in Manzano. It could be operated by some historically consistent agency such as CIA, or more obscure ones.

It is also possible that some hybrid government/private entity may have taken long term control of the facility, representing a privatization of such “Black” projects.

The facility may have been initially constructed decades ago for other purposes.  Evidence of this is suggested by extending a datum line from the blue-roofed building on the east side of the Manzano complex, past the second structure on the west, continuing several miles to the northwest, that intersects directly with the central complex of Sandia National Laboratory. Given that it was common in the 1950s to build underground bomb shelters, both privately under single family dwellings and publicly, such as under the UNM campus in Albuquerque, it is likely that an underground access-way may have been built to offer secure egress, from the Sandia area to the shelter of the Manzano complex, in the event of nuclear attack by bomber (in the pre-ICBM era).  This initial connective system may have been extended westward at some later date, to the hangar building, perhaps during the time when KUMMSC was being constructed, which would have offered a convenient cover story to explain the large quantities of earth being excavated during the tunnel’s construction, which would have been visible from satellite surveillance.

It is also logical to suggest that such a deeply protected aircraft facility would have had no purpose before the era of advanced stealth aircraft, since their most vulnerable moments are when parked on the tarmac; locating them underground seems to provide a logical solution in keeping with their stealth nature.

Another question I’ve asked myself is: why Albuquerque?  Why not, say, Area 51, the National Security Site north of Las Vegas, Nevada?  For one, we don’t know there are not also underground aircraft facilities at Area 51, especially considering Papoose Mountain is located just to the west.  But as indicated previously, Manzano was already build years before the era of satellite surveillance, whereas a newer facility in Nevada would have been observed by satellite while being excavated.  So Manzano provides a “legacy” facility ideal for this purpose.

Additionally, so-called “Janet” flights, of 737 charter aircraft, have to ferry personnel each work day to and from the Nevada National Security Site and the Las Vegas airport; these flights are constantly monitored by enthusiast internet watchers and also, it is assumed, foreign governments.  However, with the Manzano facility no such flights of workers are necessary, since the base is adjacent to the middle-sized city of ABQ and workers can merely drive in and out of KAFB proper.



It is not the intent of the author to reveal the existence of secretive facilities merely for the purposes of notoriety or attention-getting.  The facility, at least what has been directly observed by The Eyewitness, does exist.  At this very moment, advanced aircraft, of a type not supposed to exist, do in fact exist, deep under the Four Hills/Manzano Base area of KAFB, four miles from the nearest runway.  Billions of dollars had to have been expended in its construction, and in the aircraft procurement programs involved, without being leaked to the public through congressional oversight.  Billions of dollars had to have been diverted from other programs to fund these so-called black programs.  Entire systems must exist in permanence to support such back-channel funding.  Covert organizations must exist, embedded in other, overt ones, to staff and support such activities.  These implications beg further questions, rather than providing any answers.

Yet, secrecy doesn’t always remain secret.  Facilities must be supported, often by local civilian contractors, who are exposed to things they would not ordinarily see.  Word leaks out, things seen in silence are eventually spoken of, often only in whispers.  Such has been the history of the civilian workforce in New Mexico since the early days of the Manhattan Project.

The author is indebted to the work of Trevor Paglen, who inspired the principle that the covert, black world often leaves a shadow, a footprint, in the everyday world we inhabit, offering mere glimpses of something beyond. It is in that spirit that I offer this work.”
