You may have heard of the best kept 

secret of the US army – the infamous 

area 51 in Nevada, where secret 

operations are conducted. It was late 

afternoon when Air Force spotted a 

Cessna airplane landing right at area 

51. Perplexed, they immediately seized 

the pilot and dragged him into an 

interrogation room. The pilot’s story was

 that he took off from Vegas, got lost, 

and spotted the Base just as he was 

about to run out of fuel. The Air Force 

started a full FBI background check on 

the pilot and held him overnight during

the investigation. By the next day, they 

were finally convinced that the pilot 

really was lost and wasn’t a spy. They 

gassed up his airplane, gave him a 

terrifying “you-did-not-see-a-base” 

briefing, complete with threats of 

spending the rest of his life in prison, 

told him Vegas was that-a-way on such-

and-such a heading, and sent him on his

 way. The day after that though, to the 

total disbelief of the Air Force, the same 

Cessna showed up again. Once again, 

the MP’s surrounded the plane… only 

this time there were two people in the 

plane. The pilot and a sour, angry 

looking woman. The same pilot jumped 

out and said, “I know I shouldn’t be 

here again, and you can do anything you

 want to me, but please, please, will you 

tell my wife that I actually DID spend 

last night in area 51!”
