Japan US F-22 Problems Predicted
In this Aug. 14, 2012 photo, U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor stealth fighters, left, and two F-15 fighters prepare for take-off at Kadena Air Base on the southern island of Okinawa, in Japan. The U.S. is hoping a dozen F-22 stealth fighters now roaring through the skies of southern Japan will prove its most prized combat aircraft is finally ready to resume full operations after years of investigations into why its pilots were getting dizzy and disoriented. But questions remain over whether the Air Force has taken enough action to fix a potentially bigger problem - the shriveling of programs to test cockpit life support systems after nearly 20 years of budget cuts, downsizing and outsourcing.
