Area 51 raid, a Facebook event that went viral and was cancelled by the creator fearing humanitarian disaster but despite the Area 51 raid has been cancelled, US Air Force is not taking any chances and have sent reinforcements to Area 51 in Rachael, Nevada in-case if anything gets out of control.
“Our nation has secrets, and those secrets deserve to be protected,” Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein said alongside Acting Air Force Secretary Matt Donovan, Military.com reports.
Donovan have asked from operations staff about the coordination with Local law enforcement agenices as there will still be mass gathering that is expected and also there will be local event arranged by Alien Research Center.
“There’s a lot of media attention, so they’re expecting some folks to show up there,” he said. “We’re prepared, and we’ve provided them additional security personnel, as well as additional barricades.”
Matty Roberts, a original Video Gaming Creator started the internet joke with the event name “Storm Area 51, “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us” that went viral on Facebook and has been opted by more than 3.6 million people, out of which 2.1 million “going” and 1.6 million “interested”.
A week before the actual event date, Roberts cancelled the event and shifted it Downtown, Las Vegas stating the reason that he doesn’t want a Frye Fest 2.0. However there are some group of people that have stated on Twitter that they will be live streaming the event and will go to Area 51 to see aliens.
Area 51 is a highly classified military zone around 150 miles from Las Vegas, Nevada, a detachment of the Edwards Air Force Base. This location has got its name from the remains of the alleged Roswell UFO (said to have crashed in 1947) were brought to the base in 1951.
