Why aren't military aircraft painted a bluey-grey colour to camouflage them against a bluey-grey sky?

Shades of Blue-grey you say? So.......
To name a few I could think of from the top of my head. Almost every military aircraft has a variant that has been painted along the blue-grey spectrum at some point or another.
You probably only think there aren't any because the ones we see, typically, are for show. Say, for example, the blue angels, or for domestic use where camouflage isn't as important. In a foreign theater of war, the aircraft would be painted appropriately I.E. blue-gray, black (depending on the mission).
