The radar-evading F-22 costing $140 million designed for air dominance fails to evade the ground - crashes
The F22 is capable of ground attack as well. One way to attack the ground is to fly the plane nose first into it. Most other airplanes are capable of this manoeuvre too. The added bonus of this tactic is that upon successful collission with Mother Earth, radar-evasion is virtually guaranteed [and permanent]. All for just $140 million.
