A US Air Force F-22 Raptor from the 325th Fighter Wing experienced a mishap while landing at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida on March 22.
The US Air Force said the accident took place at around 10:25 a.m., adding that emergency crews responded immediately on the scene.
The pilot was transported to flight medicine for an evaluation, it was added. An investigation into the circumstances surrounding the mishap is underway.
No further details on the accident have been release. It is worth noting that the mishap took place almost exactly a year after the emergency landing of another F-22 from the same wing at Eglin Air Force base on March 15.
In an update on the accident, the service said the pilot involved was released from the hospital and is in good condition.
Unverified images purportedly showing the fighter at Eglin AFB emerged online hours after the accident, indicating that the aircraft’s landing gear collapsed upon landing.
