Flying wing designs (triangles) are stealthy to begin with, and don't require a lot of changes to make them truly stealthy. The early flying wings, with very few stealthy features reduced their detection range from anywhere from 10% to 25%.

90 degree angles are bad. 30 and 60 degrees are good. Like those old world war II destroyers have vertical walls, while the Zumwalt class destroyers have angled sides.

Hello, welcome to ATS! Very cool picture, thanks for sharing.

BTW, I'm glad Zaphod could ID that aircraft. Otherwise it would have been tumbling around in my brain for the next couple of days!
