    if you are ever in Los Angeles there are nike bases they are a cool easy day trip things... the san vincente one is cool you can walk around and great VIEW!... also there is one at the top of browns cyn. above the chatworth hills it's oat mountian... now a "park " kindda... very secluded.... i live near there it is now supposedly a SWAT training facility but i saw helicopter flying around the mountian and practice shoting but they weren't swat they where millitary. but if you feel like going in be carefull there is a lot of shady stuff that goes on up there... but if you do see it it is not activated to the public knowledge but one morning at 3 am i was driving at the bottom of the canyon and saw millitary trucks head up there with big riggs holding missles so it was intresting dont know exactly why but i dont want to... that was about two years ago... if you dont want the ecitment of snooping around go to san vincente look out lots of people hike and bike through there. with beautiful views of los angeles and the san fernando valley

    NIKE missile sites are from the cold war era.

    Talking

    well i know they have an active swat training facility up there that is kindda open i've gone up there on days of no activity and days where there was stuff going on and i was asked to leave but the days when no ones up there you get the park ranger who is pretty cool... you do have to be careful there is an old lady that lives back there and she is kindda mean she was some what land locked by the micheal antonivich..(not sure how they spell the last name) park. not many people go up there or know about it but you can get info by researching "oat mountian" to get there... from the 405 take the 118 west towards simivalley exit de soto make a right and make another right the street goes up and looks like it goes no where it goes very far back in to the mountian... follow it slowly cause there are alot of horses back there thats where mine are.... just go all the way till you stop at a gate... it's a good view and it's pretty cool to snoop alittle but just be cautious. i think they have a few things people have talked about on loacal hike or something also.

    And if anyone thinks that Area 51 has been abandoned due to that crappily researched article in the Popular Mechanics magazine years ago, think again:

    Medicine Hat, Alberta's airport is an old RCAF/RAF training facility. As is Weyburn, Saskatchewan's airport. Hmmmmmmmmm
    Glasgow AFB, Montana was turned into a town called St. Marie but it has had it's troubles, OK. Ever been to Glasgow, MT??????????????????
    boeing is leasing the field and a few buildings/hangars as a test facility. If an airplane falls out of the sky in NE Montana it will more than likely end up in a cow pasture or a stubble field.
    Liberal Municipal in Kansas is an old B-24 training base and former Beech Musketeer assembly plant houses the Mid-America Air Museum.
    Just some thoughts.
