I was browsing through a lengthy article about the (real or perceived) problem with oxygen supply in the USAF pride F-22 Raptor. Aside of showing some exemplary military stonewalling, the article was unexceptional (the story is not new). That is, till I came to the following paragraph:
After a lengthy investigation, an Air Force Accident Investigation Board could not find the cause of the malfunction but determined "by clear and convincing evidence" that in addition to other factors, Haney was to blame for the crash because he was too distracted by his inability to breathe to fly the plane properly.Emphasis mine.
Er... I just don't know. Either the journo who wrote the article has inadvertently disclosed a military secret, or USAF considers breathing to be a surplus bodily function, at least where the pilots are concerned.
So what will it be?
