A US Air Force F-22 Raptor assigned to the 325th Fighter Wing experienced a ground mishap during an emergency landing at Eglin Air Force base on March 15.
A statement from the base said the F-22 landed safely despite the mishap and that the one pilot on board was transported to flight medicine for an evaluation. Fire crews also responded immediately, the base statement read.
The Air Force said an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the mishap is underway.
According to photos that appeared online shortly after the accident, the F-22 seems to have experienced a nose-gear failure during the emergency landing.
The F-22 is based at Tyndall AFB but moved temporarily to Eglin AFB, as part of a wider Raptor base shift to allow repair works at Tyndall to continue following Hurricane Michael in 2018.
The mishap follows a more serious Raptor incident from May 2020, when an F-22 crashed at Eglin AFB. The pilot managed to safely eject.
