Dr. Michael W. Hankins

Curator for US Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps post-World War II Aviation at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum

Area 51 has long been a source of fascination, intrigue, and conspiracy theories. It has also inspired popular culture from television and film to 2019's widely publicised (but barely attended) Facebook-based attempt to 'storm the site. However, those familiar with the military aviation world have long known that Area 51 is little more than a US Air Force (USAF) (formerly Central Intelligence Agency, CIA) facility where experimental aircraft are tested. This includes everything from the U-2 spy plane to the F-117 stealth fighter. T.D. Barnes, who worked with the CIA during its formative years at Area 51, attempts to set the record straight with this new book covering the CIA's activities in the Nevada desert during the early and mid-Cold War. The result is a profoundly informative work that reveals new stories and will please enthusiasts. Still, the size of the book and its challenging organisation might be overwhelming for casual readers.

For most of his life, T.D. Barnes was a keeper of secrets, a trusted CIA employee working at the most classified base in the world. But in more recent years, Barnes has emerged as the most important historian and revealer of secrets about Area 51. He personally led the charge to declassify and unveil more photos, files, code names, and personal recollections of Groom Lake's once-secret programs than any other person, living or dead. The world owes him a debt of gratitude for lifting the veil on SOME of the amazing technology that was developed out in the Nevada desert, and his new book "CIA Station D: Area 51" is a fascinating and deeply sourced account of the secret programs that helped keep the world safe…..and still do.

For decades, the public has heard of the highly classified programs originating at Area-51 situated to north of Las Vegas, Nevada. In CIA Station D: Area-51, TD Barnes provides an important and definitively unique glimpse into the history of the critical government facility and the programs and people that so influenced U.S. national security. Although other authors have written about Area-51, it is TD's unique personal history as a CIA employee stationed there, as well as his long-standing relationships with Area-51 pioneers that make his work so readable and critical in preserving the history.
