Navy News: "Serious Testing Begins On Future Naval Fighter"

Glad the serious testing is starting. All the non-serious testing just wastes time but at least we know now why it's going to be late into service.

PS: you'd think they could get a paint shop that could match the colours over the joints, wouldn't you?

Oops, I think the cat's out of the bag.

As it's a brand new one fresh out of the box, the silver maskers, which holds it together, hasn't been painted over yet (unlike the 30-50 year old aircraft to which 'our chaps' are more accustomed).

Hope this helps. :wink:

PS: I'm glad the silly testing phase is now complete also. Is the 'arsing about phase' before or after the final acceptance bit? It's just that the RAF seem to have been taking an awfully long time over this phase with the Typhoon.

Ach, you sarky lot.

There's a much better headline (and longer article) in the paper version...

I'm impressed the headline was actually changed.

I preferred the old version, to be honest. :wink:

seven-strong Royal Navy team working behind the scenes to ensure the multi-billion-dollar project is a success.

Sounds like a good job....
