Since they revealed that infos I can't stop thinking about it. ... 5E-005.jpg

That hole in the middle of the photo... which I guess suppose to be an impact site, is verey much striking.
Does it fit to the most universal theory about Controlled Flight Into Terrain (CFIT) ? It looks more like the plane went straight down with high velocity than just hit the ground under some slight angle with situational unawared pilot. I don't know what was the conclusions after previous Raptor mishap ..if it's already available, but I see many eventual-likely similarities with this two accidents.

What did actually happen there?
Should they ground the fleet untill the puzzle will be solved?

Btw, is the F-22 g-limited to counter the possibility to overstress the pilot?

I think you need to take a break from posting for a while. Really.

I've locked this one up folks. Let the SIB and AIB personnel do their job. Nevermind needless internet rumors and propaganda. I'll leave this one up as a reference for others for what not to do after a mishap has occurred. I'll 86 the thread when I feel the time is appropriate.
