Has anyone had a beer at this bar? At the time It was the first bar/building out side the main gate at Groom lake AFB, when I took this picture, later Area 51.
Has any of you sailors worked on these planes, A3D-2P? In 58 I worked for Douglas Aircraft and on this photo equipment. Those 4 cameras on the right used 12 inch wide film. The company claimed that it could detect Barbed Wire from 35,000 feet. I personally never saw any evidence of this. But at the time Douglas was trying to come up with something to compete with the Lockheed U2 - never did of course.
