Sorry for the lateness of this post but I was driving through from Tonopah to Vegas that day and heard N88 make two approaches to Groom Lake and at least one landing on what I recall was RWY32? that day. I had my RTL1090 running with my RTL-SDR dongle and I will find the screen shot of the approach and landing. I recalled that N88 callsign from several weeks prior while staying at West Wendover. It did at least 10 approaches to the Michael Army Airfield (DPG) and the radio traffic to the tower was amusing as the FAA pilot was referring to "the techs in the back" wanting the DPG personnel to powercycle the navaid there since it was not broadcasting the right mnemonics. They refused and the FAA Pilot asked for the names or a phone number to get names of the personnel refusing so he could explain to his superiors why this mission with very complex planning was a complete waste of time.
DPG is another secret mysterious place as I recall.
