As Waynos has pointed out, this is not primier.
Last year the USAF painted one F-117 with the same paint as the Raptor uses, because they wanted the plane to have the ability to strike during the
The F-117 is a 1st gen stealth, and its ageing, its not as "black" as it used to be, we have better stealth aircraft now so it doesn't have
to be so secretive. So to make it more useful they want some that can fly in the daytime. As far as I know they have only painted one F-117 the
color of the Raptor, but i would assume that they will paint some more.
But dont think this means that the B-2 will go grey, its much better then the nighthawk.
Actually I wouldn't be suprised if they are planning on painting the Raptor black, obviously not all but around 6 to 12 of them. So when we first
attack a country we can use the state of art F-22, along with our bombers, so they are all black, and the F-22's could clear the skies at nightime.
