As passengers fly in and out of Las Vegas’ main commercial airport, few are aware they are sharing the space with a secret airline that holds the U.S. government’s biggest secrets.
And it’s hidden in plain view.
Known only as Janet airlines, the flights transport employees and contractors from Las Vegas to the Nevada National Security Site’s top secret government bases, like the elusive Area 51, which conspiracy theorists believe houses crashed extraterrestrial aircrafts.
Due to the top secret nature of the airline, little is known about its operations. But a few interesting details have been uncovered over the years.
The airline, which runs numerous daily flights out of a private terminal at Las Vegas’ McCarran International airport, is owned by the U.S. Air Force and operated by a defence contractor named AECOM.
