I've only seen these. From what I remember the QE Class will not be able to come alongside due to the depth restrictions but can use the facilities.ArmChairCivvy wrote:Has anyone spotted a similar image of the Oman facility... there have been some Google images of the wider area

Bryan Dowling is the Lockheed Martin aircraft supervisor for BF-5, one of the F-35Bs conducting testing aboard the ship. In this role, he works above the flight deck with a focus on the safety of the jet, crew and pilot.

Ah sorry, my mistake. Got a bit bored waiting for something to run at work and found these which I think are the right ones.RichardIC wrote:The question is refering to Duqm in Oman rather than Bahrain.

This time next year, it is hoped that the UK's next aircraft carrier, HMS Prince of Wales, will leave Rosyth dockyard to begin sea trials. The second Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carrier is in the final stages of construction in Scotland and has been designed to carry the F-35B aircraft.
