U.S. Air Force F-22 nose down

A U.S. Air Force (Air Force) fifth-generation F-22 Raptor fighter “experienced an emergency in flight,” as a result of which it landed with its nose resting on the runway (runway). This is reported by The Drive, citing materials published on Facebook.

According to the U.S. publication, the incident occurred March 15 at the Anglin Air Force Base in Florida. The pilot flying the plane “was taken to a medical facility for examination.

Reasons for the incident are not named in the publication.

The Drive recalls that the U.S. Air Force currently has 185 F-22 Raptor fighters, of which only 125 are combat-ready.

In March, the American magazine Popular Mechanics wrote that the helicopter developed under the Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft (FARA) project for the US Army would receive a 20-millimeter gun capable of “killing” light-armored systems, in particular, the Russian-made Pantsir-S1 surface-to-air missile system (SAMG).
