Lighter colors would have reflected more heat, but I like the slimming appearance that the paint job gives. Is it Ralph Lauren paint?

Inspired by my Military Aviation thread...

http://www.airliners.net/discussions/military/read.main/13504/

Shameless plug I know...but notice how they called it the "Boeing Aurora" when yours truly "Boeing4ever" started a thread on the "Aurora" a week ago. Coincidence...I think not.

Wait, I just realized why...if the US govt. catches that photo, A.net plans to use me as the fall guy! DIABOLICLE!  Big thumbs up

That is exactly what the "Aurora" looks like. great picture!

OK it does look a bit different in real life but none of you will ever see it. Or maybe you have and don't know it.
