Wow ...showcasing the bakery .. that will have the enemy quaking in their boots..Still nothing else to showcase apart from jobs and contracts speil.. .The elephant in the room is there is no aircraft for these carriers. The F35 is soooo over budget and ten years behind schedule in the US and is supposed to be pretty crap at everything. The carriers will get a very reduced number of these overpriced aircraft. Should have spent the money on developing a supersonic Harrier and a marine version of the Eurofighter. And begged the Americans for around 50 F22 Raptors.
And us British RAF fleet air arm are locked in to buying this crap. A jet designed by accountants to feed the finance industry. Good and doing nothing well.. Us Brits have been here already with the Tornado.. (useless as a fighter and a bomber). We should have begged for some F22s and spent the rest of Brit budget on developing a supersonic Harrier and a marine Eurofighter. We got 2 aircraft carriers nearing completion and frankly none of the F35 variants are any good - that's why Brit government keeps changing on which variant to buy?
Same here. Our dumb canadian government want to purchase a handfull of those (60?) We should had gotten someting of the shelf, like a dassault or a saab. The best would had been an F-22 (which apparently still rape the F-35, both in performance and operational range, likely in reliability too)
Oh..nearly missed this one. Been going here on and off for 22 years with family and london friends. Was always good for food although sundays if you didnt arrive between 11.50 & 12.30 .you would miss lunch or have a long wait. Now its been done up my wife and uncle went on a week day. sadly I have been informed never to go there.. Service was a disaster. But imagine still a good place to have a pint.. Don't always have to eat when going to the pub.
