Warzone/The Drive: The Russians Just Did A Fly-By Of Area 51

Russia's specially equipped Tu-154M Open Skies aircraft is doing a grand tour of America's most sensitive military installations out west.

The Russians are operating their Tu-154M aircraft configured for surveillance flights sanctioned under the Open Skies Treaty that allows member countries to conduct surveillance flights over each other's territory relatively unimpeded. The aircraft are equipped with imaging equipment with specific limitations and monitors from the country being surveilled are onboard the flights to make certain the party complies with the parameters of the treaty. This latest series of Russian Open Skies flights are being conducted out of Great Falls, Montana and are covering a slew of strategic points in the western part of the United States, including the highly secure Nellis Test and Training Range (NTTR) in southern Nevada, home of Area 51.

They're interested about these new things that were observed throughout 2018. High speed, high accelerations, incredible maneuverability. .. we can all assume that this was some tech that was started likely during Clinton or Obama administration and is being test flown since 2018 and observed by civilian and military aircraft alike.

This flyover is a nothing burger. The Russians have satellites going over much of the time, and they can see what they need to see with them. The interesting things happen when satellite coverage is not there and when Russian planes are not there.
