i dont remember where i heard it but it still makes me :rofl:

"just look for the bird going 600mph. thats the stealth aircraft in your airspace"
the fact that the F117 had such a good performance for tech developed in the 70s is mind bending.

kinda works with the idea that each time there is a special new plane, they kinda go for it 100%, then use that new tech to make production versions.

The F35 is basically the Model T of stealth aircraft. And The Model T is 100x more effective than the best they could muster.

the model T analogy makes me wonder what we're fielding that the general public doesn't even know about.
