A bizarre white flying saucer has been caught hovering above the secretive Area 51 military base in alarming new footage. In a video captured earlier this week, a white saucer-shaped object hovers in the sky above the base, where a new aircraft hangar has allegedly just been built. A YouTuber who runs the channel Adventures with Christan filmed the footage after hiking up the Tikaboo Peak, which overlooks the top-secret base.
In the clip, mysterious helicopters, trucks and planes can also be seen entering the busy site.
One Youtube viewer described the footage as the “best Area 51 video I have ever seen”.
In what is described as the biggest change to the base in almost ten years, a 210ft by 250ft hangar can be seen in the video.
Around eleven minutes into the twenty-two minute long footage, a white disc suddenly appears to hover above the space to the left of to the aircraft hangar.
Christian notes: “That flipping thing is weird. Go back and check it out better.”
Moments after the white UFO appears, a jet plane can be seen arriving along the Area 51 runway.
The YouTuber claims the plane is part of the Janet Airlines – the unofficial name given to a highly classified fleet of passenger aircraft operated for the United States Department of the Air Force.
During the surprisingly busy footage, a helicopter is also visible – an HH-60 Pave Hawk chopper that provides security for Area 51 – suddenly emerges near the edge of another mountain between Tikaboo Peak and the base.
Located 100 miles north of Las Vegas in Nevada, Area 51 is officially classified as a US military installation.
In 2013 the CIA officially acknowledged its existence and its location was revealed.
The base was built in 1955 by the CIA for the purpose of developing cutting-edge reconnaissance aircraft.
