Damn that's a lot of flex. Tell me that's not normal. Then tell me that ship didn't split in two.
Take an F-16, stir in A-7, dollop of F-117, gob of F-22, dash of F/A-18, sprinkle with AV-8B, stir well + bake. Whaddya get? F-35.

The squadron of US F-35B aircraft will augment British jets on coalition operations, not replace them.

Funny, and bolded too... but I guess they just wanted to make sure no one got the wrong idea. :mrgreen:

Hmmm - funny how other nationalities read English. The MoD/DefMin UK have said they will not have enough F-35Bs initially (slow buy - no money) so they welcome USMC F-35Bs - not a new concept - USMC Hairiers onboard INVINCIBLE? late in CVS history with few UK Harriers available at the time - because they were in STAN. The slow buy of UK F-35Bs was speeded up recently - but not enough. The RN absolutely welcome the USMC Bs because they can practice with full deck.

Wow. I think that ship is about to break in two. Springing plates, taking on water, cargo containers shifting, center of gravity changing. God help the crew.

Under no conditions is the USN going to axe the F-35C. First, it would leave the Navy will no Stealth Fighter for 20-30 years. Plus, Trump will need everyone of those aircraft to help drive the cost of the program down!
