You cannot always think everything will go right when testing a new weapon.

I think this was more of a case of maintenance flaw. usually that is the case when a plane barely gets off the ground before crashing.

Yeah but you know how things like this tend to go, Always the pilots fault cause it makes the aircraft look alright.

Well, technical difficulties is probably an issue here I think. The pilot is well trained, but I say it was 50/50 human error...if there was any.

Is this that same accident where the computer failed and the plane went into negative stability, and crashed on approach?

I think its pilot error, you gotta keep in mind its a multi million dollar jet, they probably triple checked everything on it before it left the hangar. Then when it was out of the hangar they re double checked it. Then they ran a computer scan while it was taxiing to the run way. I mean I dont know if they did that or not, but I would if you got that much money on the line.

Then again its always easier to blame the pilot.

True enough. Look at the(MV-22) Osprey! It only recently went back into testing after several nasty crashes.

The best thing about this F-22 project is that there is no way they can cancel it cause if they did it would be riots due to how much money they spent on it. So basicly they have to get it right.

From what I read it was not pilot error but an error in computer software similar to what made the F-22 test plane crash on landing. The error caused increased pitch sensitivity that was unable to be controlled.

Another reason that I do not believe it was pilot error is because the pilot was one of the most experienced Raptor pilots and had logged over 60 hours in that plane.
