C-131 Australia..

From memory The U.S. Ambassador in Canberra had one available for his use back in the 70's, I think either operated by U.S.N. or U.S.M.C.

Good question, looks like some kind of NASA test aircraft however searching through Google images doesn't come up with anything even remotely similar

Boneyard perhaps FB111C with bits missing?

I would guess they're D-21 drones. Just based on the delta-ness and inlet spike. I'm also guessing the aircarft to the right at T-2 Buckeyes? One of the uglier planes ever designed...

VH-XXX thats the Lockheed D-21. It was a recon drone designed to be launched from the back of a modified blackbird.
