That would naturally explain why so many fighter planes are painted blue (or a shade of) while the slow, lumbering cargo/troup carriers are painted green. Of course, the USAF doesn't paint any planes red, because then they can't get off the ground.
I don't even want to get into the stealth jets being painted black (OK, Hector?)
