The first F-35 landed on Queen Elizabeth just slightly under a year ago. I understand individual aircraft trials on the carrier are complete.
The UK has taken delivery of 17 (I believe) F-35s to date.
This deployment of QE is to begin air group trials with the squadron plus USMC assets.
I think troublesome weapons elevators are less of a problem then lack of aircraft on a carrier.
It looks just like one of the CG videos that were published during the building of the ship.
