Citizen spying on the government? What a twist!

It looks like the same colour as this F-15.

Um... That's not black. That's the standard "Gunship Grey" paintscheme applied to all F-15Es.

Just for comparison, here's a trio of F-16s sporting the standard "low visibility" grey paint job on the tarmac at Edwards.



You can see a visible color difference. I was quite surprised at this find. I'm obviously not suggesting aliens are piloting them or anything, but I'm certainly intrigued. Testing some kind of stealth coating maybe?
Probably. I find the whole "Aliens in Area 51" thing to be total bullshit.

I don't think there is anything special about them. The thing with Google satelite images is that they are taken from a wide range of different satelites using all kinds of different cameras so there will be differences in the quality of the images across the board meaning that they cannot be compared side by side. Looking at the Area 51 images it looks like the colours in the rest of the images are slightly off as well, like somebody has bumped up the contrast too much or something. Also, looking at the shapes of the buildings it appears that this was taken from the side rather than directly above which might make the colours look odd depending on the time of day.

But it has to be something special because it's Area 51, so obviously it's got to be something conspiracy worthy.

Taking the phrase "popping a cap" to its logical extreme.

Even better, I have to switch to Internet Exploder to make comments on my own channel because in Firefox it won't let me type anything into the comment box.

I literally cannot get Internet Explorer to open at all on my laptop. It stopped one day out of the blue, so I started using Google Chrome
