No, it's not in the article really. I know the guy that wrote it and took the pics. There was a screwup by the public affairs office and some things
that aren't technically classified, but they didn't want posted were put in.
They're hush houses. They allow you to do a full power engine run, such as on an F119, and reduce the noise. These vent trap the noise and vent it
upwards, through that bit that sticks out behind the hangar. Some hush houses turn the exhaust into steam, and vent the steam upward, so you get a
column of steam instead of engine noise.
So is the jagged pixelated silver mettalic lines to the entrance of the hanger steam then? Just looks artificial to me as if someone has scribbled
over something sticking out the front in a metallic pen, also noticed. Small bit of the same on the right hand side of the hanger as well
