What matters is the EFFECT of the idea of his

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.
