Rumors are flying (ouch) about some problems experienced by several (11?12?) of the Air Forces ‘ newest fighter, the F-22, while on a long distance flight to Japan. Apparently, the software that runs the aircraft began to reset as the planes crossed the Date Line. Had the aircraft not been accompanied by a tanker to lead them safely to an emergency landing in Hawaii the pilots might have had trouble finding the Islands of Aloha. No computer=no GPS.

Always bring a map. Read the original post on Slashdot.
