An Air Force F-22 Raptor fighter jet crashed in a wooded area near a highway not far from Tyndall Air Force Base, just south of Panama City, Florida. Luckily the pilot was able to eject safely, he did however receive medical treatment. There were no injuries on the ground.

The cause of the crash isn’t clear but the Air Force has been trying to address problems with the $190 million,  single-seat stealth fighter for several years.
