Tuc, Chug and others,

Stilton,

I might be able to help a little here, but I'm also very happy to defer to those on PPrune who will have more up to date knowledge of the F-35B SRVL development.

If I might offer a couple of thoughts here.

Multum,

I'd like, if I may, to make a couple of observations here. Yes, the RAF organisation needs to look forward and change to meet new needs. It also needs to look back and make sure that what...
