Well Francis, it would seem that....
the F-35Bs are training the Brits on how to move those machines around the deck, take them below, work in a hanger, where to place needed stand, etc. AND, to add, the Brits will be getting their allotment of such A/C soon (don't know the time line), but I would guess.....to further eval these machines, probably because our 'Gator' ships don't have let the facilities to maintain in Their decks....yet....
Or MayBe...I'm just talking-out-of-my hat.....Dodger Hat that is!!
Makes you wonder what is the actual purpose of the F35s on the RN carrier(s).
I suspect the cost of running a nuclear carrier is too high to allow for dedicating one to training like Lexington and Forrestal were.
