Associated Press reports that a Lockheed Test Pilot was killed in an accident while performing test maneuvers of an F-22 jet.

The story reports that he lost partial consciousness and tried to recover, but was too close to the ground and tried to eject. The story says that the test pilot “suffered fatal blunt-force trauma during ejection due to the F-22’s speed and the windblast.”
