ANCHORAGE, Alaska – The Air Force has identified the pilot missing after the Alaska crash of an F-22 Raptor jet as Capt. Jeffrey Haney.
Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson spokeswoman Corinna Jones said Thursday that Haney is from Jackson, Mich. He's assigned to the 525th Fighter Squadron.
His single-seat F-22 took off Tuesday from the Anchorage base for a nighttime training run. The aircraft and a second F-22 were nearing completion of their mission when one jet disappeared from ground radar tracking Tuesday evening. Searchers found the crash site Wednesday about 100 miles north of Anchorage.
Rescue teams continue to search the area, looking for any sign of a parachute or fire started by the pilot.
The Air Force has not established whether the ejection seat was deployed.
