What is the most interesting “Top Secret” document that has now been de-classified and is publicly available?(r/AskReddit)
Have a customer who worked there back in the day. never knew anything about it until one day he dumped it all. 4 hrs straight of area 51 stories while I replaced his furnace. turns out they had just declassified the program he worked on and some colonel or something wrote a book about it (he had a copy, the middle section of pics confirmed his presence). Basically, he was an aircraft mechanic for MiGs. The CIA would steal a MiG from a soviet satellite country, or get one from a defector. His job was to keep them air worthy so some of our fighter jocks could dogfight against them. Of course every time he needed spare parts (i guess the radar assys were particular PoS’s) Hed have to wait untill the agency could scrounge them up. Obviously I asked how many aliens he met, unfortunately he denied it. He did admit that many times all non-essentials would be locked up in their barracks for an hour or 4 while they did something particularly secret outside. Poor guy had gone all those years never talking about his cool job, then basically exploded when it was declassified.
EDIT: I think this was the book about the program.
