C' era qualcosa che non andava ..... ma, a quanto pare, hanno felicemente trovato una soluzione .....
U.S. Air Force mechanics resolved an unspecified “in-flight weapons system maintenance issue” on the F-22 Raptor that affected its radar cross section, the service announced.
The “innovative solution” cost much less than replacing the system and reduced maintenance down time, allowing student pilots to resume flying the fifth-generation fighter.
In an article the Air Force news service (*) published on November 15, the service described the weapons-system issue as a “re-occurring problem with one of the jets” that had persisted for a few months.
Left unfixed, the problem would have made the jet more vulnerable to detection by enemy aircraft and radars.

Che le cose siano così, non vuol dire che debbano andare così. Solo che, quando si tratta di rimboccarsi le maniche e incominciare a cambiare, vi è un prezzo da pagare, ed è allora che la stragrande maggioranza preferisce lamentarsi piuttosto che fare.

An F-22 Raptor fighter jet was damaged this weekend when it evidently experienced a malfunction during takeoff.
The fighter skidded to a stop on the runway, damaging the underside of the aircraft.
The pilot was not injured and the incident is under investigation.
The F-22 Raptor was in the midst of taking off from Fallon Naval Air Station in Nevada when the left engine apparently stalled.
The Military Comparison contacted Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, where the F-22 was based, the Air Force confirmed the accident took place.
The Air Force also stated it appears that the damage can be repaired.

Attacco alla Siria ..... c'erano anche gli F-22 .....
“US Air Force F-22 Raptors played an integral role in protecting ground forces during and after the multinational strikes against Syrian chemical weapons production facilities on the morning of April 14,” AFCENT spokesman Capt. Mark Graff said.
“Thanks to its unique fifth generation capabilities, the F-22 was the only airframe suited to operate inside the Syrian integrated air defense systems, offering an option with which to neutralize [Integrated Air Defense System] threats to our forces and installations in the region, and provide protective air support for US, coalition and partners on the ground in Syria.”
Graff declined to expand his comment to explain why the F-22s did not respond when Syria launched 40 surface-to-air missiles in the wake of the US-Anglo-French strike.

The US Air Force said that the aircraft is in depot at Hill AFB, Utah awaiting scheduled upgrades, according to a presentation given at the Aircraft Airworthiness and Sustainment Conference on 26 April 2018 in Jacksonville, Florida.
It is not clear when the aircraft would return to a squadron.
The USAF did not immediately respond to questions about the stealth fighter rejoining its fleet.

F-22s Forward Deploy to Greece .....

Two F-22s landed in Greece on Aug. 10 for local training at Larissa Air Base as part of the Raptor’s deployment to Europe.
The F-22s, from the 95th Fighter Squadron at Tyndall AFB, Fla., first arrived in Europe on Aug. 8 and are based at Spangdahlem AB, Germany, for the deployment.
The two F-22s are accompanied by a KC-135 from the 100th Air Refueling Wing, which landed at Naval Support Activity Souda Bay, Greece, according to US Air Forces in Europe.
The deployment to Greece demonstrates the Air Force’s “commitment to field and operate fifth-generation aircraft in the US European Command area of responsibility,” USAFE said in a release (*).

Lunedì ero in spiaggia a Milano Marittima e a un certo momento vedo comparire la sagoma di un caccia. Non è un Typhoon, non è un AM-X, non è un 346, non è un F-16. Mi supera e da dietro vedo i due timoni divergenti! Dopo qualche minuto passa di nuovo, molto più basso, e vedo chiaramente che è un F-35, che poi ripassa largo sul mare e si allontana. Leggendo però quello che scrivete sopra, mi viene il dubbio che fosse un altro caccia, sempre con i timoni divergenti ma con 13 numeri di meno!!! Non sono riuscito a cogliere dettagli come il numero di motori. Secondo voi è possibile?

“President [Donald] Trump and I are committed to providing the resources necessary to rebuild Tyndall Air Force Base so that it can continue to be a vital and critical part of our national defense,” Pence said.

​An F-22 pilot took off with incorrect data and prematurely retracted the aircraft’s landing gear during a training flight in April at NAS Fallon, Nev., causing the aircraft to land on its belly and skid to a stop, the Air Force announced (*).
On April 13, an F-22 pilot from the 90th Fighter Squadron at JB Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, took off from Fallon for a TOPGUN graduation exercise.
The pilot rotated the aircraft — bringing the nose up — at 120 knots and as the aircraft indicated its wheels were leaving the ground, the pilot retracted the landing gear.
Immediately after landing gear retracted, the aircraft “settled” back on the runway with the doors fully closed.

Le conseguenze del 'dopo Tyndall' (*) ...
The Air Force’s F-22 fleet may not reach its 80 percent mission-capability goal by the end of September due to “all of the permanent change-of-station moves” required after Tyndall AFB, Fla., was devastated last fall, Secretary Heather Wilson told lawmakers this week.
The service “probably” will meet the objective for its F-16s, she continued, but because the F-22s face so much upheaval in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael, that fleet “may not make it.”
Raptors have relocated to Eglin AFB, Fla., JB Langley-Eustis, Va., JB Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, and JB Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska.

OT ...

Tempi duri per le basi dell'Air Force ... dopo Tyndall ora tocca a Offutt ... :(
The home to America's prized RC-135 "Rivet Joint" strategic reconnaissance and E-4B "Nightwatch" Advanced Airborne Command Post aircraft, as well as others, and the headquarters of U.S. Strategic Command (STRATCOM), is flooding with water from a swollen Missouri River.
Offutt Air Force Base sits near Omaha, Nebraska and is considered one of the most critical installations in the U.S. Air Force's portfolio.
Not only does it house extremely high-value, but low density reconnaissance and command and control aircraft—massively expensive platforms that are essential to national security - but it is also the beating heart of STRATCOM that oversees America's strategic nuclear forces.
In fact, a brand new command bunker, buried underground at the base, was just opened in January - which sounds far less than ideal considering water is now nearly covering the end of the base's runway.

In Qatar ...
A contingent of F-22 Raptors have deployed to Al Udeid AB, Qatar, for the first time, as tensions mount between the United States and Iran.
“These aircraft are deployed to Qatar for the first time in order to defend American forces and interests in the US Central Command area of responsibility,” states a release (*), showing at least five Raptors landing at Al Udeid on June 27.
