Get to see loads of cool Naval ships in these parts, but not the same as that roar of a jet engine though.
The Ministry of Defence has bought eight of the F-35B Lightning jets They will be taking off from the Royal Navy's two new aircraft carriers Britain has said it plans to have 48 by 2023 and eventually a fleet of 138 But EACH plane costs £100million and if sterling weakens price will go up The 617 'Dambusters' Squadron has been re-formed to fly the F-35Bs They are the first vertical take-off planes since the Harriers were scrapped Original plan was for jets to land on carriers with 'catapults and traps' Read more: www.dailymail.co.uk... 17-Dambusters-Squadron.html#ixzz5FOdF07ZQ Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook
