BBC Film Crew Is Held At Gunpoint After Trying To Sneak Into Top Secret Area 51
Members of a film crew representing the British Broadcasting Company were arrested at gunpoint for attempting to sneak into Area 51, America’s top secret military base.
Guards armed with M16 assault rifles forced the 12-man to lie face-down for three hours while the FBI ran security checks.
The BBC crew visited the Area 51 facility in Nevada in order to do a documentary on UFOs, as it is presumed that the bodies of aliens are held at the facility.
UFO expert Darren Perks, 34, said one of the cops told him: “Listen, son, we could make you disappear and your body would never be found.”
The crew — filming an episode of BBC3’s Conspiracy Road Trip — were fined approximately $600 each and ordered not to reveal what they saw.
But Darren admitted: “We didn’t see anything except a bit of tarmac.”
