Just a guess...

Gariac said it best, they are doing construction in that area. If, and that's a big if, they are UAV's you've got a point about nose to tail. The only thing I can think of is that they might be using them to build a hanger or something and they want to see how many they could fit into a small space. Then again, they have engineers and math for that kind of stuff. But I'm leaning on it being construction equipment of some kind, like gariac said. Just weird, if they are UAV's, that they would be out in the open like that. How many planes (besides janet and the F-16 chasers) have been seen at groom using google earth? I can't think of many, if any at all...

Add the MH-60 security choppers and that is all I've seen from GE.
Regarding aircraft that have been photographed at Groom from Tikaboo, there is the SU-27, N105TB, and a F-117a, plus the planes you have mentioned.
Supposedly Lincoln Labs / Hanscom has their own hangar at Groom Lake.
