    U.S. Marine Corps Maj. Michael Lippert, test pilot with the F-35 Pax River Integrated Test Force, takes off from HMS Queen Elizabeth with the first Paveway II payload Oct. 9, 2018. The first bombs to be dropped from F-35B Lightning II fighter jets conducting trials onboard HMS Queen Elizabeth of the U.S. eastern seaboard occurred that day, with inert GBU-12 Paveway II laser guided precision bombs, marking another significant milestone in the carrier’s trials.
