The morning broke nice and clear in the New Mexico dessert. LL and his two shuttles took a short time to make their breakfast and launch their alien craft.
The flight to the Texas Panhandle took about an hour long and as they approached the target area LL spoke to the pilots, “Shuttle 1 & 2, the Pentax Plant is a few miles northeast of Amarillo, just follow the main highway Rte 60 to the northeast and the plant is on the north side. Admiral Hagerly told me this is the one that he’s most concerned about. It is where all of the nuclear weapons are assembled and dismantled. It is a quasi-military/industrial complex with a couple of companies running operations. That’s what makes it iffy. Whenever there are multiple groups involved, there will be gaps, and when you throw in the profit motive, you can bet on some issues developing. We’ll follow the same procedure, Shuttle 1 will make a quick fly over while Shuttle 2 does the perimeter. This site has multiple storage areas. The nuclear area is within the main plant boundaries. Shuttle 2, check all of the boundaries, and we’ll check the nuclear area first, then we’ll just do visual inspections of the conventional areas.”
After shuttle one had completed the first pass of the key buildings, the shuttle 1 pilot said, “MC, my first fly-over is done, did you see anything?”
“No, go ahead and find a place to set down,” LL said.
“Shuttle 1, there is a fence breach on the southwest corner,” shuttle 2 reported.
“Roger,” LL responded.
“MC, there are signs posted around the breach, they have a bunch of peace stuff written all over. There is one sign that says, ‘You’re dead, we’re alive.’”
“Roger, go ahead and check the remainder of the fencing, we’re heading for the bunker doors.”
“Sarge, do you see that?” Mack asked.
“Sure do, why would someone put flowers in front of each of the bunker doors,” LL said.
Mack suggested, “maybe the people that put the signs on the fence, knew enough sense to know what was here and to stay out. They were making a statement.”
“Could be, let’s run a bead of weld around the doors, I want to make sure they can’t get in if any of them are left,” said LL.
“Shuttle 2, this is MC. We’re going to weld the doors shut, should take a couple of hours.”
“Roger, we’ll stay orbiting.”
