        The undersurface of airforce one is mirror polished. The reason for
        doing so is that it reflects the blue tint of the sky downward. Close
        up, a mirror coated aircraft will be visible, but only as a distorted
        blob. At a distance, that distortion would be negligable. Combine the
        fact that the craft reflects the tint of the sky in all directions
        (sun reflection goes upward only so it isn't a factor as long as the
        craft flies high) and the fact that it absorbs incomming radar, and
        shields it's own thermal emissions, such a craft would be very hard
        to see indeed.

        FYI I am not refering to just mirror polished, I mean literally as
        reflecting as a mirror you would see on a wall.
