The US Air Force confirmed the data on the fall of the F-22 fighter in Florida


In the United States, some details were told about the fall of the fifth-generation fighter F-22. Initially, the information was not confirmed, appearing in the accounts of social networks. After some time, the material was confirmed by representatives of the Eglin military base and the US Air Force press service.


According to recent reports, the F-22 Raptor fighter performed a training flight in the airspace of the state of Florida. At one point, the aircraft, as stated, “became uncontrollable.” The pilot had to request permission to bail out.

After the bailout, the pilot was discovered and taken to one of Florida's hospitals. His condition is not currently reported.

In social networks, meanwhile, information appeared that the flight was a training session before a demonstration air show.

To clarify all the details and causes of the accident in the United States, a special expert group was formed, including representatives of the command of the military base.

The fighter was part of the 43rd squadron. It is based on the Eglin Air Force Base.

At the same time, the network began to publish footage from the car DVR, which showed the bailout of the pilot. But those shots had nothing to do with what happened in Florida with a fifth-generation fighter.

There are such frames:


How directly they relate to the incident with the F-22, has not yet been reported.

      How was this not confirmed? If the command itself officially announced all the news resources last night and made a reference to this statement.

        This is simply an American command that did not personally report to Mauritius, which means there is no official confirmation.

      As planes fly, they will fall from time to time. What in the USA, what in Russia. The pilot was lucky - he did not die, this is the main thing.

      Well you almost answered yourself. Not confirming is not lying. Was there a refutation? Did not have.
      At our place, the Defense Ministry also does not at first confirm a lot of things, but it does not refute either. And when what should be said reaches the press service, then confirmations appear.

    So what is the reason for the fall? Who is to blame, command of the 43rd air squadron or command of the 325th air wing.
    What is the truth, so to speak.

        And if - a piloting error or a gross violation of flight laws?
        When, when refueling the F-18, the tanker was killed by the crew, the F-18 pilots were under the influence of drugs, the command itself admitted.
        How do you like this version?

      That's so impatient. Everything is needed at once. Do not drive horses, understand without your questions and versions.
      To clarify all the details and causes of the accident in the United States, a special expert group was formed, including representatives of the command of the military base

    Three hours from the moment of the message, and such a scanty amount of comments.
    The number of experts, experts and experienced people has sharply decreased.
    Completely absent incendiary analytics and sparkling comments.

    Fall reports are always boring, but worse in the comments. Representatives of different camps extrapolate the crash to all aircraft of this model, generation, or even the country (as happened with the Su-57). Hyperbolizing anecdote rejoice like children. So it was with the Su-57, it is happening now with the F-22, and it was recently with the F-35. I would like to think that a person can dodge if you explain to him how it looks.
