BIll, I think you need to use your laser tech background to explain to all why the color red is slower based on the spectrum wavelengths and such. If this is not true of the physical properties, you could make something up and none of us would know the difference anyways .

That'* easy. It'* not even wavelength related. It'* the frequency in Terrahertz. The frequency of the color red is 384-482. Green is 520-610. Blue might be higher (610-659) but by the time you get to that frequency, the wind resistance is higher and slows it down, so it falls right behind green in speed .

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?)
