A NOTAM was issued advising the runway 23 landing threshold was displaced 3900 ft. 4 F16's were landing runway 23 completing a TACAN runway 23 instrument approach; marsa in-trail separation. Aircraft #1 and aircraft #2 landed without incident. Aircraft #3 touched down approximately 1000 ft short of the runway 23 displaced threshold. Aircraft #4 touched down approximately 100 ft short of the runway 23 displaced threshold. Additionally; the northeast 1700 ft of runway 23 has had personnel and equipment working on the 'closed' portion for nearly 24 hours.
