Color issues

Here are a few things with these pictures that could account for the difference in color


    Camera used
    Film Used
    Processing of film (both paper and developers)
    Lighting conditions on the day
    Weather the image was taken through glass
    Lens Filters


You put any of these variables together and you could get some wildly different colors of aircraft when compared next to each other.

Maybe you are true but I NEVER saw for example black F-117 looking like that first grey pic of B-2. I don't know what mechanism it uses (maybe some special paint as already stated?), but i thing it can change it's colors (of course not every color). And why change colors? Because the same reason why the modern jets are masking it's contrails.

It cannot change colors in the air. There is no need, nor request for such a feature. The planes are simply painted a different color. There is nothing special about em. You saw an F-117, good for you.

Air-force stated all B-2s have the same color. And there is no need for such feature? Hmmm I should make a thread about optical invisibility.

I have a bunch of pics of the f-117 that I took at the langely airshow but aol keeps crashing before I can upload them to the internet. while there I visited the Raptor Booth that was in front of a F/a-22 Hangar being built and got a poster and a bunch of pamphletes on the raptor. I found out that the first Rpators will arrive about november/december. Afterwards I walked in one of the new hangars, and they are really organized and clean compared to the F-15 hangars.

Right, but I think she works at the Raytheon building there at Langley.

there's a Raytheon building at Langely NASA? Maybe its at the AFB because they are right next to each other, you can see the huge crane from the other side of Langely afb

I keep very close tabs on shortwave radio and internet sources of military movements/deployments and am not aware a east coast (PHL) situation..more then likely, the aircraft was on a training exercise from the AFB adjacent to Fort Dix, NJ.
Even Anchorage, Alaska has monthly air defense training exercises by air national gaurd (weekend warriors) in plain view over the city and Cook Inlet. Will advise if I hear more on PHL.

I was in the hypersonic propulsion branch doing compuational predictions of scramjet engine performance. The engine concept I was working on eventually became what was tested on the X-43.
