+ - Air Force believes anti-g suit is cause of F-22's oxygen problems-> 2

Submitted by wired_parrot
wired_parrot (768394) writes "The USAF believes it may have identified the root cause of the F-22 Raptor's oxygen troubles: pilots are running into physiological limitations in attempting to breath oxygen while under high-g loads, leading to a condition know as acceleration atelectasis. This is being aggravated by the anti-g suit worn by pilots, which puts pressure in their chest. It may be that the F-22 has reached the edge of what a human pilot can handle"
