Fife is a lovely place. Here is their web portal. http://www.visitfife.com/

he fact that the incompetent knuckle walking cnuts nicked the work from people who can actually build ships without setting fire to them before the job is signed off should in no way stop you from visiting the lovely Kingdom of Fife. Although most people would struggle to name their last king. But they have a MacDonalds so bring the kids.

"Setting a carrier on fire while it's in dock is the usual course of action before deciding not to put it into service (see HMS Victorious, 1968.)... "

Has anyone checked to see where CAS was today?

Yep how hot does it have to get before the metal is seriously weak end and has to be replaced?
550 degrees C. It goes downhill after that until it does a WTC

"When completed, the 280m (919ft) HMS Queen Elizabeth will be capable of deploying up to 40 Lockheed Martin F-35 aircraft."

But in practice will only carry 6.
You've done it now. Any minute, Yokel will be along, with his myriad of links to the tired Sea Jet thread on pprune, and the "Sharkey Ward Worship Thread" that he wastes boxes of Kleenex over every night. If we still had the carriers, and the Harriers.........................................................
