    now noticed

    "TMS has been applied in sections at the rear of the flight deck to protect the steel from temperatures of up to 1,500 °C, generated by the F-35’s jet wash during vertical landing. TMS requires very careful application, done by injecting powdered metal through a jet of plasma at almost 10,000°C. The remainder of the flight deck is coated with textured anti-slip Camrex paint which needs to be renewed every three years, and this work will be carried out in stages during each scheduled maintenance period."
