They've been a lot more careful here and either flying at night or remote areas. The only sightings that we know of have been deliberate.

every time I have the chance to see images of the B-2 i cant get away from my mind the idea that this part of the aircraft is a detachable device.

It's called the Gust Load Alleviation System. It's basically a keister mounted control surface.



The B-2 also has a small wedge-shaped flap in the middle of the trailing edge. The computer adjusts this flap, called the gust load alleviation system (GLAS), to counteract air turbulence forces.

I noticed the elevons (spoilervators?) were raised a seemingly equal amount on both wings in a few shots. (I've seen this before in other videos.) Are they deployed as speed brakes, maybe to allow the camera plane to keep pace?

When they both deploy equally, they're spoilers. When it's just one they're ailerons. They frequently have to adjust speed with a camera bird.

Ah. Thanks.

In peacetime the clamshell type aileron/speedbrakes are deployed "5 and 5" as in degrees of deployment, for control responsiveness...In it's "go to war" mode, these would be buttoned up tight..

When I was in the Navy (1982-1988) we had some paint that was designed to reduce the radar signature of an aircraft. It left a rough surface that was supposed to absorb some of the radar energy instead of reflecting it back. We took a couple of expired kits and painted an old Corvette that one of the guys had. More than one cop was shaking his head as we went by.

I don't think that the paint was any good against a military radar, but, I do believe that it had an effect on a police radar gun operating at 0.10 watts.

Sounds like the makings of a Mythbuster's episode! 😂

Heard of a few cars being painted with RAAF F111 paint as well for that reason

Mythbusters were shills for the police. They needed access to police facilities and their cooperation so they toed the party line.

I'm always surprised that none of the supercar manufacturers has built a faceted/edge-aligned car with RAM paint (I'm sorry, that's the "Stone-matte finish") or LIDAR-scattering (ahem, the "Pearlescent-reflex finish") paint. You would think that there was a market for that.

I could totally see Koenigsegg or Pagani pulling something like that...

The paint alone would probably cost more than the rest of the car

Funny to think it's no longer the only stealth bomber. Times have changed.
