how come there arent any stealth planes to carry passengers? It seems like sumething the size of a gulfstream G5 with stealth technology would be a great asset for the government to move people in complete secret, now i guess it could already exist and we are just not told about this, so would this be a good asset

Likely little benefit...
Hiding in plain sight often works best, even a stealth aircraft has to land somewhere, so unless you own the airfield your cover is blown. A bland looking bizjet is often the most effective.
If real invisibility is required a Y ticket on Air Obscuristan is probably best.

Cheers

Who/what would the stealth technology hide you from? It's not as if private citizens have radar equipment mounted on their home rooftops for tracking government aircraft movements.

Indeed. Call yourself a consultant and charter a Citation or a King Air, and nobody will give it a second thought.

Heck, take it a step further....act like a pompous, rich doctor, treat everyone around you like crap, and everyone will go out of their way to avoid you...  Wink

Good question. In keeping with the spirit of his award it should be in a solar powered dingy, in which case he's already late if he hasn't left yet.
