The trainee pilot, on his third F-22 sortie, raised the landing gear prematurely on takeoff. The aircraft settled back on the runway and skidded about 3,400 feet.

The Accident Investigation Board (AIB) president found clear and convincing evidence that the causes of the mishap were the pilotís failure to advance the aircraftís engines to military power and the pilotís premature retraction of the landing gear during a touch-and-go landing. Without sufficient thrust, the aircraft settled back to the runway, landing on its underside. The aircraft then skidded along the runway to a stop. The pilot was able to safely exit the aircraft, suffering only minor injuries.
