USAF releases F-22 Raptor accident report


The USAF has released the accident report for the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor that crashed at Tyndall AFB, Florida, last November. Basically, the $149.6 million aircraft was lost due to chafed wiring—this leaves the USAF with 184 production jets remaining plus two test aircraft. Tail 4013, which used to be assigned to Nellis AFB, Nevada, was one of the oldest Raptors in the USAF arsenal.

    Does someone have a link to this that isn’t on Scribd? I’d like to download the PDF and read it, but I don’t think I should pay some website for the ‘privelage’ of downloading a public document. The AF AIB site doesn’t have it yet, maybe I’ll just check back later.

    The full accident report is on the USAF AIB website under FY12 accidents. Here is the link to the .pdf of the full report (if the link survives the anti-spam posting software:)

    Does the pilot take penalties in these sorts of incidents?

    鈥淔or that, he has taken it up with me,鈥?inter-posed 鈥楴toni; 鈥?and he is as cross as a bear, and goes swaggering about, because he has a sabre tied to him. But, by Our Lady鈥檚 blood! one. time or another, I鈥檒l beat it about his head, that sabre of his, to show him how much I care for it and for him.鈥?

    Then Cousin Alfio repeated to Alessio that he would do well to marry Nunziata, now that she had money.
