I too agree that you are one of the worst members I have come across here on ATS,and thats saying alot as I have a HIGH tolerance and have NEVER put anyone as a foe without them doing it first,ask about me,people know who I am.
To the point,why bother continuing to post on this thread if you don't agree with it and don't think it is true?All you are doing is impeding our real investigation and smearing the thread making it harder for people who actually want to hear it and know the truth to get it.There is no point for you to continue to post on this thread.............unless of course it is your intent to stop people from seeing this,(which I don't think it is)So you go back to your 'safe,rational,know all,nothing is secret world' with your source,okay?

The white F-117A doesn't actually have a round canopy. It's not a sufficiently detailed image but the canopy is black, as are the edge treatments of the tails. For a while, the entire F-117A fleet was rotating through Palmdale for new radar absorbent coatings.
Each aircraft was stripped and painted with a gloss white base coat. Sometimes there were areas, such as canopies and edges, that received black coatings before the fuselage was painted. Each F-117A made at least one functional check flight in the white paint scheme (with tail numbers applied) before returning to the hangar for coating with radar absorbent materials and being painted overall black again. The first time I saw one was quite startling. Detailed photos have been published and are also sold in the Lockheed Martin Employee Store.
