Description

Royal Navy aircraft technicians working within the US Marine Corps maintenance team keep the F-35B Lightning flying. Watch the aircraft launch from the USS WASP during the first operational testing of air/ship integration at sea off the Eastern Seaboard of the USA. The F-35 is the World’s largest single defence programme and the UK works closely with the United States; Royal Navy and RAF personnel are fully embedded with their US colleagues, gaining experience that can be brought home to benefit the UK’s future aircraft carrier operations. Filmed by US Marine Corps, May 2015.
