    Poor choice of words.....As far as I know she's still on sea trials...No F35's have landed on her yet.

    Given there are no F35 in the UK that's not exactly a surprise.

    (the RAF's introduction squadron with currently 9 aircraft - according to the RAF, other sources claim 10... - is stationed in the USA)

    Will be interesting whether there'll be any British F35 flying from QE2 before Brexit actually.

    And the prisoners are running the Prisons, the hospitals are about to run out of electricity.....

    QE2 isn't exactly landlocked. Which is why we built her.

    Factually there was a HMS Queen Elizabeth before, hence why QE2.

    Let's just call her R08.

    They should paint an angled deck line on her deck so that Carrier aircraft could line up and do some touch and go's.
