Beware of the Raptor

The Raptor F-22 that is. Raptors were the hit nemesis of the Jurassic Park movies (warning Flash splash page), but evidently Raptors can be dangerous to pilots too! According to reports, when the new Lockheed F-22 Raptor crossed the International date line communication, fuel and navigation subsystems were rendered useless despite repeated reboots! Business Week adds an additional report.

It may be quite possible that you heard this but I wanted to record this for future classes and track the post mortem afterwards. If you found other sources or additional information, please add them to the comments, thanks. Later!
