Even fighter pilots have parking lot accidents.

A taxiing F-22 Raptor ran into a parked Canadian air force CF-18 fighter April 8 at Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla.

The F-22 had just returned from a training mission when the accident occurred about 9 p.m., an Air Force report said. Tyndall's 325th Fighter Wing is home to the Air Force's F-22 school house.

Damage estimates to the jets came in at $1 million or more. The damage, mostly to the planes' wings, is considered repairable.

The Air Force is investigating the cause of the accident.
