The Air Force is close to understanding what is causing some F-22 fighter pilots to get dizzy and disoriented when flying the most advanced U.S. warplane, and could resume normal operations later this year, a top general said on Thursday.

The Air Force stopped flying the F-22 completely for five months last year, resuming flights in September. But concern about the F-22 flared again this year after two F-22 pilots told CBS's "60 Minutes" program they had stopped flying the fighter jet due to worry about safety.

Two U.S. lawmakers on Thursday released new Air Force data showing that F-22 pilots were experiencing symptoms of oxygen deprivation, or hypoxia, at 10 times the rate seen on other U.S. warplanes.

It's always disappointing to hear about these issues on Billion Dollar aircraft since the contractors are billing the US Taxpayer for their screw ups one way or another.

Pilots for the U.S. Air Force's F-22 Raptor fighter jets have been ordered to take off a portion of their flying suits, specifically the G-suit vest, during routine training missions as the service continues to investigate a rare but mysterious breathing problem some pilots have experienced in the $420 million-a-pop jets.

This may be the answer...Of course they will solve this....I would not worry too much....All new technolgy and planes go thru this....

Young Brainless Half Brains and Loons cannot recall the breaking of the Sound Barrier...lots of Grief..followed by a simple answer.Control reversal....But Chuck Yeager,and Scott Crossfield explored not only MACH 1,but much higher speeds

Most of the Planes of WW2 were called "WIDOW MAKERS"....If LOONS are looking for the safety of their mothers wombs,I suggest they start now to go that route.

The F-22 is a remarkable Plane...The future is here with this..nothing like it!!

Hey we went to the MOON!..DO IT??
These guys are called the RIGHT STUFF,as compared to LOONS who are the GUTLESS FAT ASS SOFT WONDERS of today's WORST GENERATION....

OBAMA KILLED NASA!...GOD DAM AMERICA!!
