Well, it's in one of those "random" high-res areas.

I vote decoy planes.

If they are decoy planes, I wonder, why here on the riverbank with no corresponding decoy airstrip? It's very odd to me. I'd suggest they were targets, but they are far too close to civilization for that (if there is such a thing in North Korea). Also, the fact that their new nuclear reactor is just up stream makes it all the more odd. Perhaps they are using the "Phantom Squadron" to make the reactor look like it is more safely guarded than it actually is.

In Google Earth, many of these planes have distinct shadows, leading me to believe that these may actually be 3-dimensional, rather than painted on the ground as I first believed.

Despite snowfall since the last map upgrade, North Korea's Invisible Airforce is still visible through the snow:
