Re: F-35B Lightning (RAF & RN)

I think its purely down to the UK only owning eighteen of them so far. Six F-35B's represents an entire third (33%) of the UK's current fleet.

They will land at Marine Corp Air Station (MCAS) Beaufort in South Carolina, before making the final leg to land on QE.

Re: Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carriers - News and Discussion

Three RAF 17 Squadron F-35B's based at Edwards AFB are en-route to the east coast for Westlant 19. (See F-35B thread).
Presumably, four will come from the UK to make the "seven" that Jerry Kyd mentioned last year.

EDIT: Corrected year!
