The F35B is making progress on its trial programme and some of the more grandiose claims of its general crapness being slowly knocked off one by one.

I still think the F35B is the most sensible and pragmatic choice for the UK for a sustainable aircraft fleet with location flexibility, a lower overall cost across the joint force and we will rue the day we made the switch to CTOL but that ship has sailed and we are now running around like blue arse flies wondering how much it will all cost beyond the back of a fag packet calculations we did prior to SDSR.
