    USAF launches search for missing F-22 Raptor

    [​IMG]

    The US Air Force launched a search operation last night after one of its Lockheed Martin F-22 fighters failed to return to its base following a training mission.
    “An air force F-22 assigned to the 3rd Wing at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson lost contact with air traffic control at 7:40pm Alaska time today while on a routine training mission,” the USAF says in a brief statement.
    The service confirms that “a search is underway”, and says: “more information will be released as it becomes available”.

    News of the missing Raptor comes just months after a C-17 strategic transport from the USAF’s 3rd Wing crashed at Elmendorf-Richardson AFB, killing all four crew members.

    he will be found lot of eyes are looking down from the sky, so it matter of time, but if it is defected to Russia with F22 that means gold mine for Russia, BTW if that happen then US will sell F 22 to all over the world as it wont be secret any longer.............LOL.

    They may try to find coating on body to absorbe the radiation. . I am sure electronics equipments will be tamper proof specially after china incidence . It will be mainly about planes diffrent sub systems and Radar designs etc.

    well history shows that it has happen in past and history has habit of repeating itself, but we are just speculating BTW have you forget the Mig 25 pilot who come to USA through Japan.

    hi saya, good info.

    here is my veiw of F-22 deflecting because, F-22 is such an advanced plane. cant go missing of some technical failure. and nearest place to be their from Alaska is Russia. if it didn't met any accident it could have gone to Russia.

    Assuming the pilot defected to Russia, I think the Russians will try to copy electronics and decode the secret codes in the Aircraft. Russians are not lagging behind US in airframe design. In fact, TsAGI has been churning out designs that US has only half managed to match a decade after the Russians/Soviets. Other than electronics, avionics, radar and stealth coating are also subject to scrutiny.
