F-22 Woes Continue to Flummox Air Force

It was not the first grounding for the $77 billion fifth-generation fighter fleet. Officials restricted missions to below 25,000 feet after Haney's crash before grounding the fleet altogether for five months in May 2011. And still the Air Force can't figure out why pilots can't breathe.



unhappycamper comment: These are the same guys building (and attempting to sell) the F-35. In other words, that first $77 billion dollars didn't do the trick. Let's throw another $384 billion dollars at them and maybe we can get an airplane that works.
