“The spinners are like chaff - they confuse the radar.”

Only if they fall off, like when cornering really sharp to avoid a missile - which tends to stay locked onto the rim rolling down the highway, while the F150 ambles on in a cloud of IR-obscuring blue smoke.

I was thinking more along the lines of the F-117’s approach - the radar signals are reflected elsewhere instead of back to the source, thus making it “invisible”.

Speaking of the 117... aerodynamically it was impossible for it to fly, too, without the widgetry that constantly adjusted the wings, etc, while in flight.
