Here is the local newspaper story of the F-22A Raptor here at Langley that had the stuck Canopy! Too funny:D

Slim Jim = 20 bucks
Chain saw = 400
F-22A = est 300 million

locking the pilot inside and having to call the Fire Dept to save your but = PRICELESS

I don't know about that but I bet if he had it he used it when that chain saw bar was buzzing by his ears:eek:

Ejection handle?

Believe it or not that was an option they were considering, for about 5 seconds...:rolleyes: Then they figured replacing the canopy would have been cheaper that the whole cockpit and ejection system... plus the canopy!
