F-22 Raptor Involved in landing incident at Joint Base Langley-Eustis

The incident happened at about 1 p.m. and the F-22 pilot was taken to Joint Base Langley-Eustis for evaluation and then released with no major injuries.

A U.S. Air Force (USAF) F-22 suffered an unspecific issue with its landing gear during routine training at Joint Base Langley-Eustis on Jan. 16, 2019.

The incident happened at about 1 p.m. and the pilot was taken to Joint Base Langley-Eustis Hospital for evaluation and then released with no major injuries.

Basic officials say the incident is currently being investigated. After an accident, separate safety and accident investigations are conducted. You can find more about these studies here.

Noteworthy this is not the first landing incident involving a Raptor. On that of Apr. 13, 2018 an F-22A belonging to the 3rd Wing from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson (JBER), Alaska, crash landed at Naval Air Station (NAS) Fallon where the stealth fighter was deployed for an exercise. On May 31, 2012 in fact F-22A # 02-4037 was badly damaged when it failed to lift off during a touch-and-go at Tyndall AFB. As we have previously reported # 02-4037 returned to service last December after a six-year repair job.

195 F-22s had been produced but only 187 entered active service with the USAF since eight jets were flown by the service for developmental purposes.
