Mirror: "£500m Jump Jets May Melt The Decks Of Aircraft Carriers"

So the paint may burn off and they need heat resistant paint basically, hope they don't use Teflon as all the clicky beds will slide off.

I don't know where this rumour has come from. I recently spoke to a mate of mine who is involved with the F35B testing and was one of the pilots having a play onboard the USS Wasp. He specifically told me there were no snags with the deck. Now, either he's talking out of his arse (which is quite possible, seeing as he's a septic) or someone in the Ministry/Daily Mirror has got the wrong end of the stick (again). I'm going to trust my mate on this one but I'm trusting the ship builders to make the carriers from decent metal, rather than some 1mm aluminium.
