    Pretty sure its just to block harmful sunlight in blue blue green spectrum like nightmode on your lcd screen? Everything he sees should have an yellow hue which his eyes can easily adapt to.

    yes, but you will agree they are SMMMOOOOTTTHHHH! actually my first impression of the F-35 coating texture was "baby seal", almost organic. I'd say the J-20 coatings are similar in composition and texture?

    Very nice, and indicative that squadron numbers are finally building again, we've seen one other formation with 6 birds recently right, the most we had previously seen were 5, like at Zhuhai

    Hopefully we will see and hear some video with an audio feed soon, no doubt that is an amazing sounding flight. I'll never forget being awakened by a dozen or more C-130's going over our farm at tree-top level at 5:00 AM, talk about a symphony, they were in about a 10 second en-trail formation, one after the other. When they said "tree top level", I mean the tops of our large oak trees where flopping back and forth in the breeze.

    Those sights and sounds will never be seen again..... good to see the J-20 operating in meaningful numbers.
