As usual zaph is correct with that sub. It was an Ohio class boomer in drydock in virginia. Beautiful shot of some 7 bladed screw. See picture

You'll see half a dozen los angeles class subs moored all missing their screws.
Hey zaph, I imagine the air force has some heavy duty procedures to prevent aircraft from being seen by Sat sitting on a taxi way or apron. I

satellite to pass over.
Too bad those boneyard shots of the "f-19" were fakes it would have been so cool if those actually were real and existed.
