Further goofing around with Google Earth reveals such odds and ends as an Il-76 or two and quite a few other craft I am not able to ID.

What are the circled aircraft?

I think those bottom ones are Rockwell Int'l and the one above is an An-74 if I am right

I think the two at the bottom of the picture are more likely to be transport aircraft as the fuselages are to thick to be a U2

The wings are far too sort as well. Incidentally, the engines are in the wrong place for the top one to be an An-74. The profile fits something like an An-24 more closely.

They don't have to be targets. Why does America always blow up the military hardware we find? We should keep it!

The U2 has one engine in the tail of the fuselage.
