Must be pretty cool to know what you are looking at.
That aircraft in the first pic looks to have pretty small wings, or maybe just the perspective.
I lived out in Vegas for about 2 years, my GF lived near Nellis and I would watch some big ol boats taking off... I lived way on the outskirts toward the bombing range. I would see the fast movers fly by often, I don't know what they were, F-16s F-14 or just the basic F-baddass in the sky.

The official mission of the T-38 is pilot training, but it's used for Red Air, and, at Edwards, chase planes for tests. They put someone in the rear cockpit with a camera to monitor tests. In all the years that I've observed T-38s, I've seen exactly one that reflected light where that one is. It could be something simple like they replaced a panel and it's not painted, or it could indicate they've modified the aircraft to test something.
