    The most advanced fighter jet in the world, the F-35B, takes on an unlikely foe during landing. Don't be fooled, this tiny terror causes a massive worry for the team.
    HMS Queen Elizabeth is Britain’s biggest ever warship. It took nine years to build her at a cost of £3.5 billion. Nearly 1,500 sailors, marines and aviators have left for a make-or-break four-month deployment on the high seas. This is to forge the brand new ship’s company into an effective fighting force, but their main mission is to test the top secret F-35B Lightning Stealth Fighter - the most advanced fighter aircraft in the world that will give the ship its lethal sting.

    The birds were actually recruited by ISIS, It's there last type of anti-aircraft weaponry. Foiled again, next they are sending seagulls then eagles if all else fails.

    • Nathan Peterson

      Yes. A single, though typically multi-bird strike can seriously damage an aircraft...

    The F35 was moving so slowly the bird did not perceive any danger. Solution: Paint a photo of a falcon on the underside of the intake cover! ;-)

    It doesn't take much for a gas turbine engine to grenade. I've seen an Allison T56 suck up a shop rag and totally destroy the engine along with the test bed.
    That said, this video is definitely clickbait. Shame on you BBC!
