Searching the F-35 forum using *JBDs* OR JBD* (without asterisks in first instance) one may glean three hit pages.

Anyone have any idea which CVN has these ginormous JBDs? I'll guess the yellow steel is a safety measure for chaps under.

Looks like a normal Nimitz class JBD to me. The yellow bar is like you said, a safety measure they use when doing work on the thing. Never knew for sure if it actually holds the weight, or is just installed to prevent someone from lowering the JBD while people are working.

Thanks. I've never been near a CVN to gauge these things. For sure the JBD is de-activated with the safety pole an extra.
