    Took me awhile to understand this. I have my water shade color set as inverted (as can be seen in the screenshot) so it is the same color as the ground. I set my water color back to default and relooked at this and realized...that in fact you are right...there is a lake in the middle of the airport...a very deep, irregular shaped lake. =D

    I just had a thought, it's got that shiny stuff on it like the oceans do, maybe it's an interdimensional wormhole of some kind. But if that was the case, you'd think they would turn the place into another Area 51...

    Always wondered why area 51. Maybe this is area 52 or even area 11?! Or area -51 since it's on the other side of the world opposit to area 51.

    I think this could actually explain Area 51 since they're on opposite sides of the planet. I guess if we're going to import some "foreign" aircraft, why not do it through the planet instead of just straight onto the planet? After all, nobody's watching New Zealand for any UFOs, are they?

    And regular scheduled flights would have new options and opportunities for route planning to long distance destinations
