Just did a comparison of Google Earths' pic of Amberly and the posted pic, no matches that I can identify no matter the image rotation and magnification. Could it be RAAF Tindal?

It is actually is Palmdale.

The 3 UAVs are left to right:
X-47B
X-47A Pegasus
RQ-4 Global Hawk

I was hoping Greg would see it first as he works at Amberley. I want to "test" his knowledge.  ;D

Given I am often based at Amberley I can assure you that that is not showing it...or maybe I am part of a conspiracy. ;) 8)
