I wonder who the oxygen system supplier is. I expect Lockheed is none too happy with them, whoever they are.

And my son called Harrier jets "Scarrier jets" when he was at Cherry Point NC with VMA-231 when he was in the Marines. I'd call the F-22 the "scariest jet" until they get this problem fixed.

So what happens if somebody breaches US Airspace? Are we sending up the F-22's with their pilots huffing on SCUBA gear?

The F-22 is obviously far and away the most advanced fighter out there....but I'm bit puzzled it has taken this long to figure what's wrong oxygen system.

Those two USAF F-22 aviators that went public on "60 Minutes" certainly got my attention. They obviously love the airplane but prefer to be able to breathe correctly when flying it.

Don't you guys worry about this, it will be fixed for a mere $ 10 to 20 million per plane courtesy of the maker Lockheed who by then way responded to the "60 minutes" report "that it is a "cool aircraft". Unfortunately I can not broach the appropriate expletive deleted terms that this contractor deserves......
