Rep. Kinzinger says F-22 flight vests best item to investigate in pilot dizziness probe

This morning, there are new concerns about planes that are making air force pilots sick. The problem could be worse than originally thought.

The Air Force is now confirming that F-22 pilots are 10 times more likely to get sick in the air than pilots of any other planes. Pilots have said they've become dizzy, confused, and nauseated in the cockpit. The symptoms that seem to resemble oxygen deprivation or hypoxia.

Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) released this new information from the Air Force. He's also a military pilot, serving as a major in the air National Guard. He talks with Soledad on "Starting Point" on the latest in the investigation.
