On this one, the IG got it right. The jet instantaneously lost cabin pressure and breathing oxygen at 50,000 feet but the crash is the pilot's fault. Rrrriiiggghhhtt. The AIB report is a joke and the Air Force should have to pay millions to the pilot's family for publicly trashing him.

Here's the IG report: http://www.airforce-magazine.com/SiteCollectionDocuments/Reports/2013/February%202013/Day13/DODIG_F-22_020613.pdf

USAF isn’t going to stand for any criticism of the F-22 or F-35.

Good article here:

USAF F-22 O2 Problems

The former OT&E guy in me suspects there was so much pressure to get the plane approved, and Lockheed was making so much off of making everything new, needed or not, that this design was allowed to pass.

We would have been vastly better off if we had decided to build BOTH the F-22 & F-23 on a competitive basis, rather than the F-22 followed by the F-35...

Some on this thread might be interested... I recently found a free online flight simulator that is based on Google Earth. I think it's pretty cool:

GEFS - Google Earth Flight Simulator

No F-22 on there yet though :(

...due to channelized attention, breakdown of visual scan and unrecognized spatial disorientation,

They left out "because of hypoxia." in the above.
