JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska -- Officials are hopeful that the pilot of an F-22 Raptor stealth fighter jet is still alive after rescuers found the wreckage of the aircraft in Alaska.

Col. Jack McMullen told the Anchorage Daily News that the pilot could have ejected and, if so, was equipped and trained to survive the cold in the region 100 miles north of Anchorage, where searchers believe they located wreckage of the aircraft Wednesday morning.

Rescue aircraft spotted the wreckage Wednesday about 100 miles north of Anchorage, and pararescuemen from the Alaska Air National Guard scoured the crash site until being flown out for the night.
I hope he is still alive, and they are able to rescue him soon.
