That´s something really (!) spectacular for a change. Wouldn´t have expected the USAF to allow the iron ball paint of the Nighthawk to be painted over. I love it!

Well done - Phi_map

Beautifully taken photograph! Nice framing of the aircraft... Almost perfectly symmetrical. Looks great against clear sky.

Picture this aircraft flying over "enemy" territory, with a friendly little "delivery"... Methinks it would SURELY deliver the message... Loud and clear!

Excellent picture, quite a symbol. How come the American army use such technological jewels, with the former SR71 and the B2 and at the same time civilians airlines are not able to get a Concorde successor.

God bless the American air force - some say that this is te reason why a global war hasn't come yet (by now, at least) I just hope that these aircrafts are at least as efficient and powerful as the US affirms

Low visibility camouflage scheme! Brilliant colors against the blue sky. Does that use the special radar absorbent paint the Nighthawk is supposed to be painted in?

AWESOME! This is the second time this aircraft, #782 has worn this paint scheme. The first time was 25 years ago out of Groom Lake(area 51)for about 2 days. I am pleased to see the Air Force chose to clebrate 25 years with this beautiful paint job.

I don't think that we need to use a radar to detect it, we can see it by bare eyes. What a big target! It's not stealth!
