Quoting HaveBlue (Reply 6): Doubt it, saw an F-15 demo from the West Coast team yesterday at Kennedy Space Centers Air & Space Expo airshow. And it flew the heritage flight with an F-22 and P-51.
Check the post above your HaveBlue. I was wrong in saying all but they did suspend flight ops.
Quoting PC12Fan (Reply 7): Could be just for the MO ANG. They lost another one not so long ago, but I forget the timeline.
No it wasn't. Air Force wide.
This kind of thing is SOP. A severe mechanical issue is found and the entire fleet is grounded until the fleet can be checked for this same mistake. Usually doesn't take too long. So HaveBlue, they could have already resolved the problem by theit

Our Guard unit has knocked off all flightops of our Eagles until they get to the bottom of this. The only ones allowed to fly are the birds in the desert, and any alert-assigned aircraft.
From what we've been hearing from the pilot who got out of that jet, as well as the investigators, is that "the aircraft just disintegrated"....the crashsite looks almost like the plane was in a flat spin, it's not your traditional crater/smear of parts.
