Today’s defence related media includes further reporting on the first F-35 Lightning fighter jets landing on Britain’s new aircraft carrier.
There’s further reporting from regional media this morning on last week’s announcement of the first landings of F-35 fighter jets on the Royal Navy’s new aircraft carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth.
Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said:
The largest warship in British history is joining forces with the most advanced fighter jets on the planet. This marks a rebirth of our power to strike decisively from the seas anywhere in the world.
The historic first landing on the deck of HMS Queen Elizabeth is a monumental moment in our country’s proud military history. It is also a statement of Britain’s determination to promote peace and prevent war.
