The F35 Saga

Looks like the F35 saga is still continuing   Sad   and could be years before its ready so looks likely the Navy will have aircraft carriers with no planes

Re: The F35 Saga

I can't even get a 'carrier,' without I pay five pence extra. What chance do the MoD have if they want planes with theirs and at what cost....10 pence ...50 pence ......£1 EVEN ?

David Camoron should be tried for treason against her majesty. He's destroyed our harrier fleet, sold them off as dog tins to the USA and left us defenceless at sea.

Re: The F35 Saga

Despite the "bad press"... I think you will find that the one`s we have just taken delivery of, WILL be flying from the new carriers, when completed... and they WILL be tested most severely, as is the case with all new equipment. which includes new ships...

When a ship is completed, she is not "in commission" until a certain amount of ( for the sake of a better term ) "road testing" of ALL it`s capabilities as accepted by the R.N.  this "assessment" period does two things, it gets the crew to be familiar with the sytems they will be working with,... and it sorts out those snags that have manifested themselves during the "test/assessment/road testing" time.   Those snags, also help to train the technicians, into how to recognise, and solve the problems, when the ship is fully commissioned and possibly in action.

 

The testing period can be anything from 6 months to a couple of years, and is usually "factored in" when a ship is designed.  

The same kind of assessment and training, will take place with the aircraft, whether they are flying from the carrier(s) or from air bases.

 

Some good pics and info on here....    http://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/the-equipment/aircraft/future-aircraft/f35-joint-strike-fighter

 

Scroll down the page for the pics... and there is a video of an F35 landing on the USS Wasp  ( click the < next to the pics)

Re: The F35 Saga

Is there a limit on how pilots can manage to fly these things? It's not speed I know it's acceleration but the F35 must pack quite a punch I imagine.
