Yes the B1 was painted with some RAM and its profile is somewhat stealthy also.

My vote would be either the B2 simply because it is the beastie beast  Wink or the F-22 as that is one mutha f*cking awesome plane!  Smile

I never really thought of the SR-71 as a stealthy aircraft. It was just to F'n fast and to F'n high for pretty much anything to hit it.

B-1B definitely! It just looks mean.

That said, the F-117 looks murderous.

The Blackbird for sure , it had many of the first stealth design features and electronic systems still around today. Designed by people with slide rules.
