Two bikers who said they had found a secret back gate to Area 51 were stopped by armed men.
The bikers were riding close to the perimeter of the Air Force base where Area 51, which many conspiracy theorists say houses UFO technology and where related researches are conducted, when they were confronted by armed men and instructed to “Get the f*** outta here.”
While Area 51, located in a remote corner of Nevada, has been a subject of immense speculation, the assertions that they house UFO technology have largely been disregarded.

According to the Daily Mail, it has been revealed to be a “historic test site for surveillance aircraft including the U2 and SR-71, and the US Air Force’s stealth bombers.”
After being ordered to turn around, the bikers travelled along Interstate 95.
The video of the confrontation was taken from a helmet camera. The footage was soon published on YouTube with the title, “Held at Gunpoint by Camo-dudes”; and has since received 10,000 views.
The bikers captioned the video, “EVERYONE SHARE LIKE CRAZY, WE MIGHT HAVE TO TAKE THIS DOWN SOON DUE TO THE US GOVERNMENT!! DON’T LET THEM HIDE THIS!!”
Debunking the the myths of Area 51 “are hard to dispute if no one can speak on the record about what actually happened there,” according to Los Angeles Times. In the LA Times story, five men – Colonel Hugh “Slip” Slater, 87, was commander of the Area 51 base in the 1960s; Edward Lovick, who has radar tested some of the most famous aircraft; experimental test pilot Kenneth Collins; Thornton “T.D.” Barnes, an Area 51 special-projects engineer; and Harry Martin, 77, in charge of the base’s supply of spy-plane fuels.

The front gate, which is heavily guarded and supervised using road sensors and cameras, is the only official entryway to the site. The closest legal place to view the site is from the top of Tikaboo Peak, a mountain located around 25 miles from the base.
