    Another laughing "depressed". It is a pity that they will most likely restore it.

        In total, 195 F-22s were released, 8 crashed, in 2018 of 55 aircraft 22 due to malfunction could not fly away from the impending hurricane in Florida and were damaged.

      It is necessary to "cannibalize" it (in American terminology), that is, to use it for spare parts ... There will be less in the ranks. Or write it off altogether.
      The pilot is alive, but the hardware has been spoiled a little - there is zero tragedy in this news, and there is reason for optimism!

      But ... Dreams-dreams. Will restore. Although it has a special coating, and the racks may no longer be produced. In his sediment tank!

        Damage to the fuselage is minimal there (judging by the photo, most likely only the fairing). The cover will be restored, but nothing has done to the rack. Most likely it didn’t stand on the lock and broke (not to be confused with broke off) IMHOhi

      Hard to tell. Judging by the photo, it may have landed for a long time. In general, the figures are optimistic - out of 250 built, 125 in the ranks. I wonder where the second half is?))))

      There are no problems only with non-flying airplanes and steamers grown with shells to the quay wall. The rest (existing) equipment is not immune from this.

      What are the problems, except that the engines are from the landfill


      The old man B-52 over Europe had a pair of engines out of order. The plane circled Britain, producing fuel, and then made an emergency landing at RAF Mildenhall. They are going to scare the Russians, yeah ... First reach Davis-Monsen

    The pilot did not eject, so they will be repaired. Although I think the repair of the F-22 may cost that the new F-35

    The belly is scratched, nothing will be sealed with electrical tape, it will fly as good as new. Another thing seems to be how all the raptors have recently been modernized, isn't it a mistake of the "modernizers"?

    So here's a toast: let ALL B-52s, regardless of modifications, burn with a pleasant blue flame good

    In the past, the Americans offered many green candy wrappers for hijacking our MiG-15 (although they had their own good Saber), offered for the MiG-21 (although they had their own Phantom), offered for the MiG-25 (although they had their own excellent F- 14, F-15, SR-71), and received. Can the "responsible" persons of the Russian Federation organize something similar in relation to the F-22? It will be cheaper than cutting money for AL-31/41 ... Pure neighing. Let their amerskie anus strain!
