This is unbelievable to me. Here is a comment I read. What are your thoughts?

"Haney was to blame for the crash because he was too distracted by his inability to breathe to fly the plane properly."

That has *got to be the most ridiculous statement I've ever read. Reminds me of the time I was at fault when a giant spike pierced my face and I became so distracted by the blood I could no longer operate my vehicle.

And this is what is getting sold to Canada at almost double the asking price.

I would call that being sarcastic myself.

But that's just me.

And i wouldn't really call them "terrified" either.

I know I would be terrified if knowing every time I did my job I could die from a fall of about 30,000 feet. Give or take a blackout upon arrival to the ground.

Yup, and what's alarming is that people here are buying the "official" explanation, that the cx pilot " 'mistankely' thought he was going to crash into a jet"

I have no doubt these pilots are being intimidated by their superiors.

The US government has spent way too much money on this particular project, and it is still not what they said it would be. The general public would be outraged to hear the cost of the raptor program and, the fact that it is still not a battle ready plane.

So of course they are trying to keep its unreliability under wraps.

Just thought your arguments would be better served if you knew the difference between the 2 aircraft....
F-22 Raptor


F-35 JSF
