Glad to see that the pilot banged out safely, and is back in QE.

But how far we have come. Back in the ‘60s, Scimitars and Sea Vixens went in on a regular basis, sometimes monthly..

Glad the Pilot is ok, dont give a crap about the F-35 though, that can reside in Davy Jones's Locker and rot. Not a fan of the type I fear.

Sadly, I have to agree. This new fangled F-35B is not at all what it is hyped up to be. You can dump them off the back of the carrier and deep-six all of them for me !!!

The main thing is that the Pilot managed to bang out, However as for F-35, at least they didnt go for the Boeing contender, that was even uglier and even more crap. I see no other alternative for a Carrier aircraft though, unless we buy French !!

And now the british, americans and russians are trying to locate the wrack of the plane. If the russians get it first the whole technology of F-35 would be compromized.

I am reminded of the many photographs of WW2 carrier planes being unceremoniously pushed off the back end of the U.S. carriers when the war in the Pacific was finally over and the ships were on their way home. Maybe in several years time we might find a graveyard of dumped F-35B fighters on the sea-floor which were deep-sixed after it was discovered they were declared 'crap' by their former users and then disposed of accordingly.
