F35B power nozzle braking

Just reading that the Prince of Wales will be heading to the US East coast and will be conducting further F35 development work


This includes continuing expansion of the rolling vertical landing abilities some while carrying external stores


The article mentions that ‘power nozzle braking’ will be used to assist in stopping the aircraft after touchdown


I understand how that worked on the Harrier but I’m not clear on its functionality in the F35B


Anyone have more details ?

You may find this thread interesting. 'quicksilver' was a USMC Harrier pilot: View topic - UK MOD in a muddle over F-35C - Program and politics (f-16.net) ME about SRVL HUD video: "Perhaps SRVL braking method has changed, with nozzle not being used? SRVL under test to this day, with few approaches. Note the NOZZLE ICON - left side btm - in the first video. The nozzle goes to 90deg as engine goes to idle under brakes...." & 'quicksilver': "I believe one must pull the LHI (throttle) aft out of the detent in order to command nozzle positions forward of 90 degrees. But, as you suggest, I doubt it’s [PNB] needed at such slow touchdown speeds." An HUGE amount of SRVL info here: View topic - F-35B UK SRVL info - Updated when new/old info available - General F-35 Forum (f-16.net)

Are you referring to HMS Prince of Wales?

It must be time for bed. When I read the OP I thought. “Is Charles qualified to do that?”

Depends where he points his nozzle.

Doesn't matter if he isn't, its just a lot more expensive if he runs off the runway.
