I can imagine this isn't going to help the pilot's budding career any. I haven't heard of student pilot mishaps, Thanks for sharing.
A Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor from Tyndall AFB, Florida, was damaged last Thursday evening during a training flight, the US Air Force confirms.
While the pilot is safe, the aircraft suffered more than $2 million in damage-which classifies the incident as a Class A mishap. The full extent and cost of the damage has yet to be determined, but the service expects that the aircraft will be repaired.

Could have been a malfunctioning altimeter. Or 2500 other mishaps..
