A video (below) has appeared online showing the moment two adventure bikers were stopped by camouflage-clad men near the secretive Area 51 military base in a remote part of Nevada.
The bikers claimed they found an alternative route into the base but were halted from going any further by the guards, which they describe as “camo dudes,” Daily Mail reported.
In the recording, a white van approaches the bikers and two men in unmarked camouflage uniforms get out and raise their weapons.
“Get your f------ hands up,” one shouts at the two bikers.
The bikers are then frisked by the guards.
“Have you got anything on you?” one of the guards asks.
Before they were stopped, the bikers drove past a sign warning that deadly force could be used against anyone caught.
“We are going to give you guys a chance. You turn around and get the f--- outta here,” one of the men tells the two.
After the bikers leave, the video shows them discussing what has just happened.
“That was crazy, he was so aggressive,” one says.
They posted the video on YouTube and it garnered more than 10,000 views in a matter of hours.
“EVERYONE SHARE LIKE CRAZY, WE MIGHT HAVE TO TAKE THIS DOWN SOON DUE TO THE US GOVERNMENT!! DON'T LET THEM HIDE THIS!!” the posters wrote.
“This is raw and shot in realtime. Not fake or PHONY! We bring you the extreme footage shot by us. I don't know how long it will be up until the Gov't makes us take it down!” the posters added.
Area 51 has always been highly secretive. The main entrance is heavily guarded and the closest point from which the base can legally be viewed is on a mountaintop 26 miles away.
The U.S. military only admitted the existence of Area 51 in 2005.
Reports suggest the base is used for army testing and is believed to have been the location for the U2 spy plane program. Stealth bombers have also allegedly been tested there.
Some claim the U.S. government keeps UFO technology at the base.
Adding to the legend surrounding the base, it was reported in August that a fleet of 737 passenger aircraft operated by an airline named Janet makes a number of daily trips to the base from Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport, according to RT.
