I am actually impressed on how quickly the pilot realised something was wrong and he ejected without a second thought. Good training.Footage of the accident on QE, pretty much straight into the drink.
Watching the video, I don't see any rain covers. It looks pretty clean to me.They really did leave the lid on…
It looks like thats what he/she tried to do.Would he have been able to abort the takeoff?
This timing is same as planned new su-57 engines.Looks like this will correlate with the Block 4 timeline. New engine is claimed to increase F-35 range by 30%.
