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...

Gotta agree with you. Competition in production aircraft would mean ensuring higher cquality than the other guy and failures would be highly noted.
