An anonymous correspondent, "A Contractor for STS Services", writes on 11/13/96:

EG&G is STILL flying folks into and out of Area 51 and related areas. A certain repair station in OKC does heavy maintenance checks for EG&G's 737s--in fact, one of their aircraft is nearing completion of a "C" check--it's outside the hangar at this time preparing for a post-maintenance test flight. Checking the tail numbers (the "N" number on the tails of their aircraft) against the FAA's aircraft registration database (accessible through www.landings.com) shows that all the aircraft operated by EG&G are owned by the Department of the Air Force. Tail numbers for their aircraft are:

It's interesting to note that all but one of their aircraft are converted Air Force T-43s. I can't say for the rest, as I haven't seen them, but for the one in OKC, there is nothing out of the ordinary about the aircraft. The interior is somewhat similar to Southwest Airlines, in that the forward galley has been removed to make room for more seats. Also the forward lavatory has been removed and turned into a closet. As far as systems and avionics N4529W is just like any other 737-200. No weird antennas, or strange attach fittings, or places to mount pylons or anything else--just a plain-Jane 737. Ugly interior, though--reddish-orange and navy blue.

Additionally, Air South, a smaller start-up airline on the East Coast, operates 2 former EG&G airplanes--N4510W and N4515W.

A51 & JANET Still Going Strong

I made a special trip to Vegas (11-27-99) to see anything new or if anything has changed around the airport. Friday (11-27-99) I did not see any of JANET's white, single striped aircrafts. So, I thought perhaps things were slowing down. But Sunday, 11-29-99, there were six JANET aircraft at it's terminal. Again... there is a lot more than nothing going on.

A -51 is now a semi- functional AF base with minimal covert

A-51 has become so well known that virtually no covert or secret activity exists at this location. There are still day to day operations, with emphasis on one particular unnamed project.Rachel and surrounding areas is nothing more than a tourist trap/location.The area is deserted even on weekends.Most activities has moved elsewhwere.

JANETs still cranking out flights

Over the days 7-11-99 to 7-14-99, I observed from my hotel room on the southern side of the Tropicana, many flights and no less than six JANET 737's on the ramp each day. Also, there were at least three USAF blue-stripe turboprops on the ramp next to the JANET 737's. Also noteworthy were the pack parking lot, day and night, and security posts. Significant activity indicated for a base that doesn't exist, and is doing nothing even if it did exist. The departing planes really were going fast as they banked slowly to the north.

NO N NUMBER

I used to live at the end of the runway in Long Beach,Ca. On two occasions I saw a 737-200 take off that was white, had no N number,and had all the windows blacked out. I got a real good look at this thing and there were no markings whatsoever. Janet flight? or other. Any clues? pls post
