Not a Scoot & Hide, but a flow-thru. Highly desirable because you taxi in after a flight and taxi out for the next. No time-consuming backing of your aircraft with a tug to get it into a hangar.

I seem to recall the SR-71 hangars at Kadena Air Base being flow-thru and I seem to recall the F-117 hangars at Holloman AFB being flow-thru as well.

All the alert interceptor hangars at the bases I was stationed at were flow-thru. Standard procedure was for returning planes to taxi thru their hangar bay, do a U-turn and taxi back into their bay and shut down, rather than to taxi around the hangar and into their bay. An interesting show to watch.
