Perhaps the B2's engines reveal the secret. If they incorporate unusually large integral electric generators--which might be apparent from casual observation--then you've got one of the steath secrets solved, at the very least, and also some evidence to support the idea of electrical propulsion. It might be revealing to study the mechanical differences between the B2, F117, and non-stealth aircraft engines.
EDIT: I guess you meant this to be a u2u instead of a submission, but put here for now.
