Accidents F-22 and F-35: we understand what happens to fighters of the 5th generation of the USA


High-profile accidents with American aircraft of the latest generation are happening more and more often. Only in the last five days, F-22 and F-35A aircraft crashed, and before that, there were many similar cases. So what happens to fifth-generation American fighters? Let's try to figure it out.


Fighter F-35A, which was part of the air squadron, stationed at the US Air Force Eglin Air Force Base in Florida, crashed during landing. According to the information on the page of the air base on Twitter, the pilot survived, nothing threatens his life. By the way, the Eglin air base is also a training center for preparing pilots for flying on the F-35.

Nothing is known about the causes of the accident, but the US military is alarmed: the second accident in a few days (before which the F-22 Raptor fell) can cause great reputation damage to such a fierce fifth-generation American aircraft.

F-22 Raptor crashes: pilots have been afraid of flying this plane for a long time


On May 15, 2020, from the same base, Eglin flew on his last training flight the US Air Force F-22 Raptor, assigned to the 43rd fighter squadron of the 325th fighter wing. By a happy coincidence, the Raptor pilot managed to survive: he successfully ejected and was taken to a military hospital for rehabilitation.

With the F-22, whose production is already closed, similar incidents have occurred before. On March 25, 2009, the F-22 crashed in the area of ​​the Edwards air base, while his lieutenant colonel David Cooley, piloting it, died.

November 16, 2010 - a new incident with a tragic end: the F-22 crash from Elmendorf airbase claimed the life of pilot Captain Jeffrey Haney. At the same time, representatives of the Air Force first put forward a version of the pilot’s mistake, but then it turned out that the engine overheated became the cause of the tragedy. Captain Haney's widow sues Lockheed Martin.


The next accident occurred on November 15, 2012. The F-22A Block 10 aircraft of the 43rd fighter squadron of the 325th fighter wing of the US Air Force crashed near the Tyndall air base in Florida, but this time the pilot managed to escape, although he was injured.

With the F-22 in general, many interesting stories were associated. So, during 2011-2012. The US Air Force even halted flights of all fighters of this model several times. There was a public appearance of the two pilots, in which they declared their refusal to fly on the F-22.

F-35s also fall and burn


The fifth-generation multi-role fighter F-35 was conceived as a more advanced model, replacing the F-22. What PR moves were not invented in the USA to ensure sales of this very expensive aircraft to foreign countries. So, one of the most important buyers of the aircraft was Japan.

On April 9, 2019 at 19:30, the F-35A aircraft, owned by the 302nd squadron of the Japanese Self-Defense Forces, crashed over the Pacific Ocean. The accident occurred 135 km east of the Misawa base during a training flight. The pilot of the F-35A, 41-year-old Major Akinomi Hosomi, died.

True, Japanese Defense Minister Takeshi Iwai "otmazat" F-35, saying that the technical characteristics of the aircraft have nothing to do with the accident, and the reason for the tragedy is the loss of orientation by Major Akinomi Hosomi during the flight. Why suddenly an experienced Japanese pilot "lost orientation" in flight, did not explain.

Meanwhile, six months before the crash of the F-35A in Japan, on September 28, 2018, the F-35B fighter belonging to the 501st training squadron of naval attack fighters aviation The US Marine Corps fell 8 km west of the Beaufort Base in South Carolina. The pilot managed to catapult and escape. CBS News then called the accident the first crash incident in the F-35 fighter family.


Before the fall in South Carolina, incidents with the F-35, although they did occur, did not lead to falls. So, repeatedly there were fires, but pilots managed to make emergency landings. The first such incident occurred on June 23, 2014 with an F-35A assigned to the 58th fighter squadron of the US Air Force. The plane took off from the Eglin base in Florida, but his engine caught fire. The pilot managed to interrupt the flight and leave the car, but the damage caused by the fire was so significant that the plane had to be decommissioned.

Another fire occurred on October 27, 2016 with the F-35B aircraft of the 501st training squadron of marine attack fighter aircraft of the US Marine Corps from the Beaufort base. They managed to land the plane, no one was hurt, but the damage was also so impressive that the F-35B was decommissioned.

Meanwhile, regardless of whether the pilots survived the accident or not, whether it was possible to save the plane or had to be decommissioned, any incidents with the F-35 hit the image of the aircraft, in which the United States invested hundreds of billions of dollars in the program.

Not only is each car very expensive and in case of write-off or death, the owner country loses enormous money, so accidents make potential buyers doubt the pluses of the F-35. Therefore, the United States is not at all interested in revealing the true causes of accidents. The ideal excuse for such cases is “pilot error”, as was the case with Japanese major Hosomi.

        I read the comments and noticed an interesting thing. Yes, someone rejoices at the opportunity to poke mattresses, someone calls for objectivity .... but an interesting pattern: for some reason, those who are most actively defending the US military and criticize the Russian government most actively in the other branches of the US military and industrial complex and the US armed forces , industry, economy. At first I thought that all of these “Civilians”, “kjhg (Voroshilovsky shooter), Osminog are such domestic patriots that they worry about the country and criticize the authorities for the cause. But what kind of lousy patriots are they who blaspheme them in every possible way, and potential opponents for such But do you protect the problems in every way? So, whose patriots are they, the patriots of which country?

          Truth be told, our authorities did everything possible and impossible, so that only the lazy would not criticize them, and even those who always supported this power.

          I will not say for others, but you are clearly very superficially familiar with my statements. Presenting to Americans is one of my favorite activities. True, more often for past affairs.

          If we consider the situation from the point of view of the Russian patriot, then everything is just beating. The Russian state does hack-work for a ruble taken from the people for a penny (as a rule, this is a TASS message from anonymous sources), the remaining 99 kopecks are stolen or spent on Sobyanin borders of the spring-summer 2020 collection. Meanwhile, a likely adversary is testing new models. Yes, it is facing a mountain of problems, but Russia is now where it was 30 years ago.

      Zaurbek, so that there is no accident, I suggest;
      1. Shoot all the birds, because they fall into the engines.
      2. Remove the wind, because it has strong gusts.
      3. Remove the air, because it has holes.
      4. Level all the mountains, because planes get into them.
      5. Drain the entire oceans, because it serves aircraft.
      6. Take away the Earth in general, because planes fall on it.
      After all this, have you not yet decided to live? wink

      Well, a raid on the PAK FA and then on the SU-57 is not quite frail, but several thousand hours. At the same time, one car was lost without the death of the pilot.
      As for the intensity ... so in Syria they flew and fly quite intensively and especially there our cars do not crash.
      As for the F-35, it has already been said how many times that the car is damp. Either the oxygen system has a problem, the gun doesn’t shoot there, the coating falls off ... I will tell you so, the F-35 will continue to fall. And the point is not only in the intensity and number of hours of flight.

          Is it hard to be a prophet? Insufficient traction on one engine. Electronics using technology of household appliances (the less nanometers, the better). The disregard for aerodynamics is the main thing that it looks cool and futuristic.
          The Americans long ago switched to the principle of punitive war - imperceptibly crept, hit, fled. Well, or a crowd of 100 for one, as in Yugoslavia.

      Accidents and catastrophes of the F-22 Raptor fighter

      On the night of November 16, 2012, the F-22 Raptor fighter crashed on a highway in the state of Florida in the southeastern United States. The incident occurred near the Tyndall military air base south of the city of Panama in Florida. The pilot managed to eject, he was hospitalized. No other casualties or injuries were reported.

      November 16, 2010 in Alaska, the F-22A Raptor crashed with tail number 06-4125. The plane, assigned to the 525th squadron of the 3rd air wing (Elmendorf-Richardson base, Alaska), crashed 160 km from Anchorage during a training flight. The pilot Jeffrey Haney did not have time to eject and died.

      On March 25, 2009, the F-22A (serial number 91-4008) crashed in the Mojave Desert of California, 35 kilometers northeast of the Edwards Air Force Base during a test flight. Pilot David Cooley, a 49-year-old veteran with 21 years of piloting experience, died.

      On December 20, 2004, the F-22A (serial number 00-4014) crashed during takeoff from the Nellis Air Base (Nevada), and the pilot ejected.

      On April 25, 1992, the prototype YF-22A (serial number 87-0701) crashed while landing at Edwards Air Force Base and was decommissioned. The accident occurred due to deficiencies in the aircraft control system.

      Accidents and crash F-35:
      June 23, 2014 at F-35A (s / n AF-27, r / n 10-5015 [145] [146] [147]), assigned to the 58th fighter squadron of the US Air Force, flying out on a training mission from the Eglin base in Florida, the engine caught fire. The pilot safely interrupted takeoff and left the plane. The reason was the failure of the third stage of the rotor of the engine fan. The F-35A was badly damaged: the blades of a faulty rotor cut through the engine fan housing, engine compartment, internal fuel tank, and hydraulic and fuel lines. Damage caused fuel and hydraulic fluid to leak, resulting in ignition of the stern and fire in two-thirds of the aircraft. It is estimated that the total loss from the accident exceeded $ 50 million [148] [149] [150]. The plane was decommissioned. [151] [152]

      September 23, 2016 F-35A (s / n AF-63, r / n 12-5052 [153]), assigned to the 61st fighter squadron [en] US Air Force, deployed at the base "Luke" [en] in Arizona , caught fire on the runway of the Mountain Home airbase in Idaho [153]. During engine start, a fire occurred in the rear of the aircraft. The alleged cause is F135 engine failure. After examining the pilot and three aircraft maintenance specialists at the medical center, it turned out that none of them were injured. [154]

      October 27, 2016 F-35B (s / n BF-06, r / n 168057 [155] [156]), assigned to the 501st training squadron of naval strike fighters of the United States Naval Forces, made an emergency landing at the aviation station " Beaufort ”in South Carolina. The fighter caught fire during a training flight. The plane landed safely, no one was hurt. In the report of the naval security center, the incident is classified as class “A” [157], which means that the damage caused is estimated at $ 2 million or more. The report of the security center says that a fire occurred in the weapons compartment of the aircraft [158] [159]. The reason was the technical feature, which consists in laying electrical wiring close to the hydraulic lines. The plane was decommissioned. [160] [161] [162]

      According to unconfirmed reports from the media, the Israeli F-35 was damaged by a Russian-made S-200 missile during an Israeli air strike in Syria at the end of 2017; however, Israel claims that one of its F-35s was damaged, but after a collision with a bird. [163]

      August 22, 2018 at 12:50 F-35A, assigned to the 58th fighter squadron of the US Air Force, made an emergency landing with a raised front landing gear at the Eglin air base in Florida. As a result of the incident, the EOTS optoelectronic location system could be affected. [164] [165] [166] [167] [168] [169]

      On September 4, 2018, the F-35C, assigned to the 125th Squadron of US fighter jets, suffered engine damage while training in air refueling over the Atlantic Ocean. Debris in the filling hose cone fell into the engine. The aircraft successfully landed on board the aircraft carrier Avraham Lincoln. [170] [171]

      On September 28, 2018 at 11:45 a.m. the F-35B, assigned to the 501st training squadron of the United States Naval Forces naval strike fighter jets, crashed 8 km west of the Beaufort Aviation Station in South Carolina. The pilot successfully ejected and was taken to hospital. According to CBS News, this is the first crash incident for the entire F-35 fighter family. [172] [173] [174] [175] [176] [177] [178]

      April 9, 2019 at 19:30 F-35A (s / n AX-05, r / n 79-8705 [179] [180] [181]), assigned to the 302nd squadron of the Japanese Air Force, crashed over the Pacific Ocean 135 km east of the Misawa base in Aomori Prefecture in Japan during a training flight. [182] [183] ​​[184]

      May 19, 2020 at 21:30 the F-35A fighter crashed, assigned to the 58th fighter squadron of the US Air Force in Florida during a landing.

      Something like this.

      It was not two, but five F-22s that crashed. F-35 lost five too. A big difference

              The Russian aircraft industry shows 1 loss for technical reasons on more than 300 serial and pre-production derivatives of the Su-2010 and Su-27 built after 57. Why should we somehow be surprised at the multiple decrease in accident rate in the USA during the transition from Cold War machines to construction vehicles after the year 2000, when we have the same thing.

                      The accident of the MiG-29K, which was not sent to the ground, but did not have time to fix the air finisher, is obviously not connected in any way with the quality of the aircraft, or even with the pilot's skill. What do you want to say about the F-35, I don’t really understand, it has an accident rate that is quite adequate for a modern aircraft, no worse, and no better than our new cars. If the F-22 was the same age as the Su-27, then during the same raid they would have smashed 2-3 times more.

          Yes, I have no doubt, only stealth fighters have already produced a total of more than 700 pieces and have not been noticed in extreme accidents, and after all, some "raptors" are already more than 20 years old.

            The F-35 was already born with diseases that needed to be fixed at the design stage. Now, when he went into the series, these diseases cannot be cured by any modernization.

                How many mattresses did the F-35 themselves voiced there? In my opinion, more than 900 pieces (correct, if I'm mistaken)? A finished and modified car with such baggage of hemorrhoids a priori has structural problems. Which we observe systematically. With these restrictions on the altitude of flights, it also says that it seems that this machine is in the army, but like that crocodile, it flies, the current is low.
                For example, our SU-57, even at the pre-production stage, DOES NOT have restrictions on the heights and speeds and angles of attack specified in the task. And they drive these SU-57s both in the tail and mane, not in the example of the F-35. However, only one car is lost.

      Or maybe it’s not a raid, but the fact that the F-35 machine itself is far from perfect and serial production in fact? But this device was launched into the series, and this is a miracle of the American aircraft industry now in the army. At the same time, new hemorrhoids are constantly voiced, which jumps up in this machine.

    F-35 and F-16 will fight the most in military aviation - after all, they will be made (and the 16th has already been done) in huge numbers, the rest is human imperfection (pilot, service, production marriage) and banal statistics.

    More than 240 hours? Is it that they have been flying non-stop for 000 years?
    240 / 000 = 24 days
    10 / 000 = 365 years
    And, as I know, the F-35 first entered the U.S. Air Force only in 2012. Yes, even if we consider their production since 2006, it will not be 27 years old. How did they fly so much?
    1. Eh, you would be framed.

    Aerials are heavier than air because they are heavier than air

    Heh! Me with my driving style for the first time on a “Ferrari” or on an F1 landing - I’ll also get hurt, and it doesn’t matter how much it has run into before, whether it’s been raided. At one time, I remember that the Americans had 250 annual flying hours

    Fall, then fly. Recall Tu22, Su24, etc.

    Despite other characteristics, Ф22 seems to be a very beautiful airplane. and fall - there are different cases

    as is the case with the Japanese major Hosomi

    Well, yes - write off the loss of orientation, it is actually admitting that the navigation system did not work, the gyrocompass did not function, nor did the communication, since the dispatcher could give directions for returning to the base.
