That British F-35 in the pic and twitter video was in the Mediterranean not the South China Sea.

At this rate, F-35 gonna run out of plane before even put to war.


Is it true both crashed becos air inlet cover forget to take off.
Dont the pilots do a walk around before takeoff? Who’s cutting corners?

The Sonarman from the YouTube channel Sub Brief has been saying ships have been poorly maintained in recent years. Sloppiness is costing us aircraft and destroyers and subs crashing into all kinds of things. Crews are being run hard. The rot has to stop.

The same one sailed through the south China sea in the same month


Taiwan TV mocks UK Navy's F-35 based aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth plunging into the sea
Taiwan TV mocks aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth for only sailing through south China sea last month, this ship is actually full of problems, water leakage accidents also happened to the ship, commenting that UK barely had enough money to built them, and after building them, they surely don't have any money left to maintain them, the paint of carrier has already started to peel off.

The report also says the UK doesn't have good modern supporting ships to form a decent carrier fleet group, the legacy and rundown old ships which are serving this job makes UK carriers very vulnerable to be attacked by enemy ships and planes.

I thought that helping hand was "Indian" :)

you do know that in last 50 odd years Indians have crashed close to 1200 ?
Indian do not need helping hand. They are well known for poor maintenance or incompetent pilot. If IAF plane crashed. Nobody will be shocked or surprise. It's routine for them. The only shock will be IAF plane don't crashed. :lol:

I have no idea what the brits did but it would be impossible for the raincover to be missed on a big US carrier because they have to use the engines to drive to the catapults and then throttle multiple times to get connected. If the covers were on they'd be going nowhere.
