On June 9th, 2021, the UK performed the first landing of a Lockheed Martin F-35B Lightning combat aircraft aboard the Royal Navy's (RN's) second aircraft carrier, HMS Prince of Wales. This milestone formed part of ongoing sea trials being conducted off the south coast of England as the vessel is advanced towards achieving full operational capability. Once declared fully operational, the UK's Carrier Strike capability will combine its pair of aircraft carriers with the F-35B.

Lockheed F-35B Lightning II

Designed to meet the US Military's requirement for a multi-role Joint Strike Fighter, the F-35 was first flown on December 15, 2006. This single-seat fighter is one of the most advanced aircraft of our time, said to be four times more effective at air-to-air combat and eight times more effective at air-to-ground combat than any other existing aircraft. It uses a low-maintenance stealth technology, and some versions have an innovative Lift System, which gives the F-35 vertical take-off and landing capabilities. The US plans to buy a total of 2,443 F-35s at a cost of $323 billion, which makes the F-35 the most expensive defense program in history.
