Pompey News: "Royal Navy’s New Fighter Jet Flown By British Pilot For First Time"

I think that newspaper is a more than a tad out-of-date. I know of at least two RN SHAR pilots who have not only flown the thing but were deeply involved in the flight testing. One of them performed the first vertical take-off (although that is not considered a vital, nor operational, facet of the aircraft's box of tricks). It's quite crap reporting when a Crab is hailed as the Top Neddy on an RN project, more so when it's not true =-(.
