An F-22 from the 43rd Fighter Squadron at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., crashed the morning of May 15 just north of the base. The pilot safely ejected and was taken to the hospital for evaluation.
The F-22, assigned to the 325th Fighter Wing, was flying a training sortie with Eglin’s 33rd Fighter Wing about 12 miles northeast of Eglin in the base’s test and training range when the pilot was forced to eject.
I'm hoping they can upgrade one of the test/evaluation squadron Raptors to current-block upgrade status and replace this one? I think there were 8 or so test aircraft, but maybe someone can correct me on that.
