Britain has contacted the United States, hoping that the United States will help salvage the F-35B carrier plane that crashed on the USS Queen Elizabeth.
According to the U.S. The Drive website on November 18, the British Department of Defense has sought help from the U.S. Department of Defense to salvage the F-35B carrier-based aircraft that crashed Queen Elizabeth. According to the report, salvaging F-35B carrier-based aircraft is a difficult and priority to ensure that any confidential parts of the crashed F-35B do not fall into the hands of Russia or other potential powers.
The British Ministry of Defense confirmed on the 17th that an F-35B carrier fighter on the British aircraft carrier Queen Elizabeth crashed in the Mediterranean Sea, and the pilot ejected to escape. The British Ministry of Defense said it had launched an investigation into the crash.
The F-35B is a vertical take-off and landing model in the F-35 stealth fighter family. It is equipped with advanced avionics systems and weapon systems. It is currently one of the most cutting-edge fighters in the world and the most advanced fighter jets currently equipped by the British army. It mainly sells stealth technology, network combat function and system combination technology, making fighters not easy to find.
The report pointed out that the main reason for seeking help from the United States is that the U.S. military has deployed relevant equipment at bases in Spain. The towed TPL-25 locator owned by the U.S. military can track the emergency beacons of the F-35B and accurately locate them. This device is obviously on its way to the area.
The Times reported that the British army has not yet found the exact location of the F-35B wreckage, but the plane crashed shortly after taking off from the aircraft carrier. Due to the influence of the current, it may have drifted to other places from the position where it actually entered the water.
