Bill: Where does this go? Dick: No, no, this is a chicken feeder!

Pietenpol Project

When the Department of Defense was looking for a site for its future ultra-secret Area 51, a chicken coop in Northwestern New Jersey was considered for a while. It was rejected because the chicken couldn't be trusted, and Groom Lake, Nevada was finally retained. The cover was good enough for Dick and Bill though; they seized the opportunity and started their own secret operation called the "Pietenpol Project".

As the project gets declassified, we will be able to provide more information about this flying machine. Some already declassified documents can be reviewed at the Brodhead Pietenpol Association.
