    The F-35 Pax River Integrated Test Force carried out phase two of the first of class flight trials (fixed wing) aboard HMS Queen Elizabeth. Test events included external stores, minimum performance short-takeoffs, shipborne rolling vertical landings and night operations. A third phase followed by operational testing is scheduled for 2019. Together the events will help the UK Ministry of Defence reach initial operating capability (maritime) in 2020.
