US Air Force warns over 'Storm Area 51' Facebook event

19 July 2019 - 93   - 0

A "Storm Area 51,They Can’t Stop All of Us" Facebook page which started as a joke has gone viral, with more than 1.3 million people signed up to participate in the event whereas US Air Force has warned people from going near the Area 51.

The details of the event read, "We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry. If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Lets see them aliens."

More than a million people have RSVP’d to an event on Facebook, threatening to storm the top-secret base in Nevada, which some believe is home to aliens. Thousands have commented on the page, which reads: "We can move faster than their bullets. Let’s see them aliens."

What and Where is Area 51?

Decades of extreme mystery surround Area 51, a remote installation about 80 miles northwest of Las Vegas, stoking conspiracy theories about UFOs and experiments on alien spacecraft.

The CIA lifted its veil of secrecy in 2013 on Area 51 in response to a public records request from George Washington University scholars in Washington, D.C. The university publicly released online a 400-page CIA history containing the first deliberate official references to Area 51, also known as Groom Lake, as a site developed by the intelligence agency in the 1950s to test fly the high-altitude U-2 reconnaissance plane.

Other top-secret aircraft were tested there later, including the supersonic reconnaissance A-12 aircraft, code-named OXCART, and the F-117 stealth ground-attack jet.

Among the more sensational pieces of UFO conspiracy lore linked to Area 51 is that the remains of a flying saucer that supposedly crashed near Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947, were brought to the site for reverse engineering experiments that attempted to replicate the extraterrestrial spacecraft.
