On November 16, 2010, Capt Jeff Haney was killed when the bleed-air system in his F-22 Raptor malfunctioned and ultimately shutdown the jet’s life support system. Even though Haney had no oxygen, and the emergency oxygen system was difficult to use (so difficult that it had to be redesigned), the USAF blamed him for the crash because he wasn’t able to react to the situation quickly enough. Now the Pentagon’s Inspector General has come to conclusion that the Accident Investigation Board report’s conclusions are not supported by the facts. The USAF is, of course, sticking to its story.
Here is the report–see it for yourselves and come to your own conclusions.
