Every now and then, someone posts this to an Internet discussion board. There are several NASA F-18s including a USMC F/A-18 that was used for spare parts and the F-18 Iron Bird (non-flyable avionics integration test article). Also, there is the F-16XL-2 that was used for a supersonic laminar flow control experiment (note the asymmetric wings). To the left are two NASA T-38 airframes without wings or tails.

Just to the north you can see the X-34-1 on the left and the X-34-2 on the right. Both were in pretty terrible condition when the picture was taken.

In this image, all of these aircraft are parked on the spot where the Space Shuttle Mate/De-Mate Device (MDD) used to stand.
