Heard of Janet Airlines? No? Good. That's exactly what the US government wants. One of the government's biggest secrets is hiding in plain sight. In Las Vegas.  Janet is the top-secret government airline that doesn't exist.

Next time you're in Vegas, visit one of the big casinos next to McCarran Airport. I'm talking about Luxor, Excalibur, Mandalay Bay. When you get there, look East at the airport.

All day long, but especially early in the morning and late in the evening; you'll see mysterious planes taking off and landing. You can't miss them. They're big. They're Boeing 737s.

They have no markings. No logos. They're plain white with a single red stripe. This is Janet Airlines.

Janet is a top-secret, air-force owned commuter airline. For civilians.  But the destination Janet goes to the most -- I'm talking a few times a day-- is... Area 51.

Let's find out why.
