"As the time for this podcast approached. I still still hadn't received permission to use the names of the landowners and location. So the man made flying saucers. I mentioned on Monday. Last the podcast story aureus still coming and I'm still doing research to find other and follow up on other reports. But in the process of that research I stumbled on a privately-owned own mind located in the middle of the region known as area fifty one. And that's this podcast. Today the ownership of this mind line dates back to the time of President Grant and consists of roughly four hundred acres. The Air Force offered five point two million to buy the four hundred acres encircle by the Nevada test and training range which includes area fifty one if the families decline which they have said they.

She said remember that so landowner but on the the flip side of that he said they have every obligation to protect the rights of all Americans citizens the squeezed by the government to buy the four hundred acres Surrounding the mine was me wasn't two thousand fifteen today. It's now official. A federal judge has officially taken the land and handed handed it over to the United States. Air Force the family resisted. The initial offer saying the property is worth far more because of rich or contains but also the buildings to mining equipment and the unique history of the property which still holds a remains a pass family members. An agreement has yet to be worked out as to where the bones owns of those relatives will go for now. The family will continue its effort to receive proper valuation of their property one that purpose revived nuclear blast testing in the fifties and sixties as well as a building that was damaged from Chattan engines that fell from the sky.
