This is the moment that an F35 jet from the Royal Navy aircraft carrier, Queen Elizabeth, crashed on take-off earlier this month in the eastern Mediterranean. The footage was released on social media.

The Queen Elizabeth left the port of Palma this morning after a five day visit. A full investigation is underway to establish the cases of the crash of the F35. The pilot ejected and escape underhurt.

It has been claimed in the British media that "rain blankets" which had been placed over its engine had not been removed and this caused the crash.

Hey we can all make mistakes. I thought Bojo would make a good prime minister.

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. Hopefully they retrieved the plane as the Russians will be really keen to get their hands on that super sophisticated, advanced and highly top secret rain cover technology!

The F-35 Raptor in the most sophisticated Fighter Jet ever produced at a price of around 160 million pounds , if it true that the plane was trying to operate or take off with some protective equipment still in place well this is inexcusable and unbelievable !
