This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile14132/strange-place-for-a-long-runway.htm>strange place for a long runway</a></b><br><br>i found this in random searches through the nevada desert. More interesting than the location of the runway itself, is the camouflaged set of large buildings to the immediate southeast.<br><br><img src=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/images/new/080505/18386Zwischenablage07.jpg>

If you look around the "runway" you can see the craters from the bombs. Also, the runway is just dirt with a berm edge. If you look at the "taxiways" you can see an earth grader releveling the runway after an "attack".
