Two members of Congress urged the Pentagon on Thursday to finish an investigation into two whistle-blower pilots in Virginia who complained about problems with the F-22 fighter jet.
The Air Force late last month convened a summit in Ohio to address the most vexing problem of its premier jet fighter — pilots becoming dizzy from oxygen deprivation while flying the supersonic F-22 Raptor.
He helped write the requirements for what would become a stealthy air-superiority jet that would fly higher and accelerate faster than any previous fighter.
"In a room full of F-22 pilots, the vast majority will be coughing a lot of the times," he said. "Other things, [such as lying] down for bed at night after flying and getting just the spinning-room feeling, dizziness, tumbling, vertigo kind of stuff."
