Hmmm... wth?

No idea atm. But that's the F-22s, F-18s, & now T-45s with very similar problems pointing to system contamination.

It's the russians, they hacked our air.

After the IT guys install the patch the hose won't kink during inverted maneuvers.

Of course not. The thing that bothers me is that I first knew of the issue in the early days of the F-22. I thought that problem had been solved considering there's been calls to reopen production lines. But according to what I read last week, it's been a problem in the F-18 and all legacy models for quite awhile. And now this.

Two out of the three are Lockheed with the F-18 coming from Boeing (originally McDonnell-Douglas). It only makes sense to zero in on the O2 system maker. This is the first article I've read that used the word "contamination" repeatedly though. But that word has multiple meanings.

Ooo...good call! Like when the wire breaks, someone has to go in and sweep up all the electrons.

Planned obsolescence.

Now they need more money to build MOAR because we are about to go to war.  Wait for it.  Emergency War Funding EO.

Sell 'em all overseas and restart production of the F-22. Heck, the USMC is pulling F-18A models out of the boneyard and overhauling them for inventory.
