Area 51 remains shrouded in secrecy.

A Boeing NKC-135R was tracked flying over the secretive facility multiple times back on September 20th.

There are few places on Earth as notoriously secretive as Area 51 – a remote facility in the Nevada desert that has become synonymous with stories of reverse-engineered alien technology and the development of highly advanced black projects that next to nobody knows anything about.

Despite the mystery surrounding the base however, it seems that not even Area 51 is beyond requesting the services of an air-to-air refuelling tanker now and again.

On September 20th, tracking data indicated that a Boeing NKC-135R tanker had spent much of the night flying repeated routes right over the top of the secretive facility.

It began at around 11pm and continued crisscrossing Groom Lake for over 4 hours before vanishing.

While it is unclear exactly what the tanker was doing over the area, it is not difficult to imagine that it could have been refuelling some sort of exotic new aircraft that is being worked on at the base.

Given the secrecy surrounding the place however, it is unlikely that we will ever know for sure.
