Nice find. I've poured over this airbase more than any other image and am always amazed at how much I missed. You could spend a week detailing all the cool stuff that's in and around this base.

A friend of mine told me of an Italian soldier who came across a similar bunch of discarded fighters in Mogadishu, Somalia when stationed there. Unfortunately, the soldier made the fatal mistake of pulling the ejection handle while sitting in one of the old fighters.
