Holidays are supposed to be memorable. We go on holiday to escape daily life and experience the unfamiliar. I’ve had some fantastic holiday experiences over the years and have come home with some great stories to tell family and friends. But, there’s one story that is unlike any other. A story that has since gone viral.
On a trip to the US in 2014, my wife and I embarked on one of the famous Area 51 tours. We expected conspiracy theories, abduction stories and a glimpse at the main tourist spots — the ET highway sign, the Little A’le’inn and, of course, the very edge of the Area 51 base itself.
At the beginning of the excursion, we were made well aware that all tours are under strict instruction not to pass the border of the base. We could never have expected the events that were about to unfold.
After a brief moment of distraction on the part of our driver, our party of four unintentionally passed the notorious warning signs that mark the border of the military base. We entered Area 51 — something that UFO enthusiasts and conspiracy theorists around the world can only dream about!
I wish I could tell you that we uncovered a hangar full of otherworldly aircraft, but within just a couple of minutes of crossing the border, we learned just how seriously the military base takes its security.
While a few individuals have strayed over the line in the past, our intrusion is believed to be the first captured on video. Not only do we now have some rather unusual footage to add to our home video collection, but the video has since received over 4 million views on YouTube!
Take a look at the video below. As you can see, my wife and I are in the seats directly behind the driver.
