This plane appears to be a different make than the others parked around the base.

Believe it or not, but there are actually three aircraft visible in this image. In addition to the one highlighted with a yellow triangle, there is another slightly off a nose to tail position behind it, and another at about 2'oclock, right beneath the dirt road.

Methinks those are not planes but more likely AAA guns or, less likely, missiles. If they were aircraft there'd be some sort of taxiway or tow road to get the planes to the runway. These revetments appear to be on a small hill overlooking the air strip, and planes don't taxi well up hill on a dirt road.

The green plane marked with a yellow triangle in the thumbnail is definitely an aircraft, distinguishable by its canopy, wings and stabilizers. The two other images seem less credible. However, when I ran them through a few Photoshop filters, they distincly showed all the features you'd expect to find on a plane, just not with great clarity.

There are AAA guns on the otherside of the revetments in the circular areas

The top of the yellow traingle is pointing at the aircraft's left wing. The nose of the airplane is oriented toward the southwest, its tail, northeast. The canopy is visible as a dark spot.
