    ‘Mechanical Problems’ Reported in Two F-22s


    The Air Force said Thursday that it had determined why two more pilots recently experienced oxygen problems in the F-22 Raptor, the stealthy fighter jet. Lt. Col. Tadd Sholtis, a spokesman, said malfunctions in the aircrafts’ life support systems caused a problem at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Va., on June 26 and one at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, on July 6. Colonel Sholtis said that since the episodes had known causes related to “mechanical problems,” they are not part of an investigation into why a disproportionate number of F-22 pilots have had breathing problems in the jet.
