ajSR-71 is right. They are T-38's that are lined up on the tarmac. I believe that elsewhere in the pic you can view one making it's way across the
taxi way. As for the tails coming from the hangars, they are KC-135's from the 940th. The real mystery of Beale lies within the "decomissioned"
SR-71 hangars. Recently, the USAF removed all but four. There were twelve I believe. What use does the USAF have with them? I know as of recently,
after talking to some old SR-71 guys, that the 9th SRW kept on hand a partially disassembled SR-71 to be recomissioned in case of extreme
circumstances. This was kept in one of that hangars, even well after it's second and final retirement in 1999. But who knows?
