I know Scouse, I know.

Was in two minds as to whether to run this one or just let it vanish ............

New to RR. Long time lurker.

Don't worry - ex FAA pilot did one of first test flights. VSTOL too fiddly for a crab driver (only kiddin). :lol:

Lt Cdr Stone & Lt Cdr Lawler were the two JSF pilots, they flew the boeing and Lockheed variants a long time before this crabfat imposter.

Big deal. The Germans flew the Kestrel (Harrier prototype) as part of the Tripartite Evaluation Squadron in the '60s. They never bought the Harrier once the trials were over.

The way the economy looks at the moment, I very much doubt we'll buy the F-35 either. Let's not forget we've so far only committed to 3 airframes for evaluation purposes.

Like Scouse, I'm just more annoyed that a Crab got to fly it first
