WASHINGTON -- An F-22 fighter jet crashed Thursday afternoon near Tyndall Air Force Base in the Florida panhandle.
The pilot ejected safely, according to Lt. Col. John Dorrian, a spokesman for the U.S. Air Force.
Tyndall AFB is a training base for F-22 pilots. There's no confirmation that the plane took off from Tyndall before the crash, but that would be logical, Dorrian said.
The F-22 has been the focus of years of investigations about a problem that causes some of the stealth fighter's pilots to become dizzy or black out.
The exact cause of the problem still hasn't been identified.
