    NORTH ATLANTIC OCEAN -- The F-35 Pax River Integrated Test Force tests aboard HMS Queen Elizabeth (R08) for phase two of the first of class flight trials (fixed wing) from British Queen Elizabeth Class carriers. Phase two testing includes 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 IOC(M) in 2020, bringing back carrier strike capability for the UK.
