The F-22 stealth fighter was once called “the most outstanding fighter plane ever built” and now one of them has mysteriously crashed in Alaska.
Authorities have located the $150 million plane, but the pilot is still missing.
Around 7:40 PM yesterday the F-22 lost contact with radar and around 10:15 the plane was found by helicopter. Air Force Sergeant Daniel Delgado believes that the pilot ejected from the plane and Alaska Air National Guard is currently on the lookout for them.
As for the actual F-22, I am glad that Obama cut off funding for the $65 billion program. That money could be spent on other more useful things than national defense. Last year the Air Force reported that a single hour of operating the craft costs $44,000 an hour.
