Wicker discusses T-45 oxygen issue with nominee

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WTOK) - Mississippi Sen. Roger Wicker met Tuesday with President Trump's nominee for Secretary of the Navy.

Wicker, who chairs the Senate Seapower Subcommittee, said he received a favorable response from Richard Spencer regarding his proposal to help find a solution to the hypoxia-related episodes occurring in T-45 training jets.

Physiological episodes occur when pilots experience a loss of oxygen, breathe contaminated oxygen, or undergo cockpit decompression. The T-45 jets are flown at Meridian Naval Air Station and two other bases.
