Interesting! Not sure what to make of that, other than to agree with Tyler that a highly reflective coating on a low-radar-observable aircraft seems counter intuitive. A reflective aircraft should be fairly easy to spot. I will keep my eyes open up here in Rachel.

Obviously, if it flies out of Nellis, and not TTR or Groom, there is little concern about it being seen. For those not familiar with Nellis AFB: In both runway directions an aircraft is over public streets almost as soon as it is airborne at very low altitude. And most of the time there are spotters with long lenses just outside the fence in the active runway direction.
