I wish the people in my country were a little more patriotic

A visitor from - posted Tue July 7, 2009:
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!

A visitor from - posted Tue May 26, 2009:
WOW!!! That just makes you say; God Bless America.

An ex-combat vet, there isn't anything any more heart warming than the Stars&Stripes overhead, it truly means Death & Distruction is on the way. Airborne "All the Way"

A visitor from United States posted Sun February 5, 2006:
Godd job Geogre you got my favorite plzne with the countrys flag on it

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 8, 2005:
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.

A visitor from United States posted Tue December 6, 2005:

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 18, 2005:
Sweet, i'll take it

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu November 17, 2005:
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?

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Now thats what I call a kick-ass paint scheme!;p

A visitor from France posted Wed November 16, 2005:
Very good !!! This it !!!!

A visitor from United States posted Wed November 16, 2005:
Great angle & shot! Can't get any better than this!

A visitor from Singapore posted Wed November 16, 2005:
A real flying USA flag! Wonder it would appear in Singapore.

A visitor from Romania posted Wed November 16, 2005:
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

A visitor from Bangladesh posted Wed November 16, 2005:
Awesome man!!

A visitor from Germany posted Wed November 16, 2005:
Das ist USA :-P

A visitor from Germany posted Wed November 16, 2005:
Nice camouflage :-)

A visitor from United States posted Wed November 16, 2005:
The spirit of service in action!

A visitor from Canada posted Wed November 16, 2005:
That's what I call a flying flag! I just wish there was a picture of the cockpit, so I could draw the instruments...

A visitor from Germany posted Wed November 16, 2005:
Tons of bombs inside this beauty ... 1 Star for 1 bomb?

A visitor from Australia posted Wed November 16, 2005:
I'm just not sure if it's patriotic enough maybe add a picture of BUSH's head as well...Anyway great shot! you sure get around george i envy you.

A visitor from France posted Tue November 15, 2005:
I love this shot but I think it can't hide itself easyly...but it's a great livery!!!star spangled lockheed(and banner,of course)!!!so nice...

A visitor from France posted Tue November 15, 2005:
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.

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 15, 2005:
Beautiful!

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 15, 2005:

A visitor from Australia posted Tue November 15, 2005:
Beautiful flying triangle!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue November 15, 2005:
Top shot Georgie Boy!!
Caught the underside square on - just check out the fuselage between the fins! WOW! Contrast between the stars n' stripes and that Californian blue backdrop is just awesome dude! 5***** (sorry I couldnt give you 50!)

A visitor from Denmark posted Tue November 15, 2005:
Not so much stealth about this plane anymore lol

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 15, 2005:
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!

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 15, 2005:
My new favorite camouflage scheme!

A visitor from Belgium posted Tue November 15, 2005:
Almost at the vertical, so well symmetrical. Besides, the whole underneath of the plane is painted !
Well done - Phi_map

A visitor from Mexico posted Tue November 15, 2005:
What will they think of next? I do not pretend to be insulting but this F-117 looks like a kite. Anyway nice idea of displaying the stars´n stripes.

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 15, 2005:
Holy Guacamole. Nice picture!

A visitor from Brazil posted Tue November 15, 2005:
Superb!!! A "flying" flag without the pole.
Fantastic picture.

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 15, 2005:
Awesome shot! I love the Nighthawk!

A visitor from Germany posted Tue November 15, 2005:
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!

A visitor from Australia posted Tue November 15, 2005:
I like the stars and stripes on the underside of this Nighthawk, very patriotic and very cool design, well captured!!!

A visitor from Switzerland posted Tue November 15, 2005:
Talk about a discreet bird....

A visitor from Italy posted Tue November 15, 2005:
Wow. What a shot--thanks for uploading it.

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 15, 2005:
The red, white and blue really show off the trim and panels. Awesome.

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Tue November 15, 2005:
Beautiful sight!

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 15, 2005:
It's a bird... no, it's a kite.... no, it's a sheet of plywood... NO! It's an F-117 !! Awesome !

A visitor from Germany posted Mon November 14, 2005:
Cool!!!
