F-22 taxiway collision causes $1 million damage ?
A US Air Force Lockheed Martin F-22A Raptor has sustained more than $1 million in damage after colliding with another aircraft parked on a taxiway.
A spokesman at Tyndall AFB, Florida, where the incident last week occurred, confirmed the F-22A struck a Canada's Air Force Boeing CF-18.
Despite a $1 million repair bill, the collision was a relatively minor, low-speed event, the spokesman says. Details of the damage are being withheld pending the results of a safety investigation.
The USAF defines a Class A safety mishap as any incident resulting in death or disabling injury to people or more than $1 million worth of damage to the aircraft.
Meanwhile, the RCAF has also dispatched a safety investigation team to Tyndall, says a spokesman for the 1st Canadian Air Division.
The spokesman was unable to immediately provide details about the damage sustained by the parked CF-18.
I wonder how the pilot managed to do such a thing..
I question the level of discipline in the American Armed forces.. reminds me of this incident when this Los Angeles Class sub surfaced below a japanese trawler, didnt offer elp to the crew of the sunken ship, and simply limped back to port
Don't worry too much Satish, unless you're flying an SU-30 and there are hostile F-22s around.
lol, I remember this...the Japanese crew must have thought it was Godzilla or something...
