I think George Knapp is speculating on the TTR being the new home to the BOP. It's possible, but you would think they only send projects to the TTR that are going to be deployed. The BOP is just a development vehicle, not ready to be delivered to production.

The really interesting thing is that plane has been flying since 1996, and none of the current generation of "interceptors" got a photo of it.

If they have it on the runway at the TTR, it should be possible to get a photo where you could recognize the shape, but the small size will make this plane hard to photograph at a distance with much detail.

Perhaps we can get them to stage it at Indian Springs. ;-)
