De Wolfe Miller, director of the Air Warfare Division for the U. Navy, confirmed that from 2015 to 2016 some models of the F/A-18 experienced as much as a 90 percent increase in potentially deadly physiological events.Three active-duty F/A-18 pilots, who spoke to Fox News under the condition that their name not be used, said they are putting their lives in danger just by getting behind the controls of an aging fighter jet.“When I go flying in combat, what’s more likely to kill me is not getting shot down by enemy fire,” said one of the F/A-18 pilots.

’” he said, "nine out of 10 would probably say, 'OBOGS failure or decompression.'” Two of these three pilots said they have experienced hypoxia-like episodes in the cockpit.
