Groom Lake Interceptors: Not Dead Yet!

The legendary "Groom Lake Interceptors" (or "Area 51 Interceptors"), who haunted the border of the secret Nevada base in the 1990s, aren't dead yet (at least mostly). This blog will try to prove it.

I'm Kilroy, formerly known a "Psychospy." I was the de facto leader because I was the only one who was actually living near the base at the time. In January 1993, I moved from the Boston area to the tiny town of Rachel, Nevada, to explore the "base that wasn't there." At the time, Groom Lake was known to aircraft watchers and UFO buffs but was virtually unknown to the general public. I set about to change all that and succeeded beyond my wildest dreams. You've probably heard of Area 51 now!

Along the way, I met up with a motley crew of aviation watchers, journalists, engineers, freelance assassins and n'er-do-wells, and we teamed up to use our own special superpowers to attack the Area 51 problem. I can't say for sure that we accomplished anything, but we sure learned a lot along the way.

The Interceptors got a lot of publicity back in the day, but where are they now? We'll jump right in with some posts, and eventually we might find out.


  1. Nice to see you back, Glenn..:-) Fuel costs are obviously killing a lot of people's ability to visit the base. I know I, and surely others, enjoy your narrative(s) about the area, both past and now present.

  2. Hey glenn!

    I keep telling them, we're not dead - we just smell that way. Glad to see you back online.

    Everything old is new again. What goes around comes around- again - eventually -ad infinitum.
