MYSTERY WIRE — The vigilant coverage of mysteries at the Tonopah Test Range continues to pour out of The War Zone.

In the latest post, a Dec. 6, 2019, satellite photo is examined for evidence regarding the contents of a set of hangars on the secretive air base located to the southeast of Tonopah, Nevada. (Northwest of Las Vegas.)

So far, we’re still looking at a big unknown, but it appears parts of some type of aircraft are poking out of the hangars. The image doesn’t show anything like previous satellite images of the hangars. The War Zone cites Planet Labs Inc. as the source of the image.

Speculation ranges from unmanned aircraft — drones — to a refueling operation. The War Zone reports that much of what goes on at the Tonopah range happens at night to keep the secrets secret.
