    The most advanced fighter jet in the world, the F-35B, takes on an unlikely foe during landing. Don't be fooled, this tiny terror causes a massive worry for the team.
    HMS Queen Elizabeth is Britainโ€™s biggest ever warship. It took nine years to build her at a cost of ยฃ3.5 billion. Nearly 1,500 sailors, marines and aviators have left for a make-or-break four-month deployment on the high seas. This is to forge the brand new shipโ€™s company into an effective fighting force, but their main mission is to test the top secret F-35B Lightning Stealth Fighter - the most advanced fighter aircraft in the world that will give the ship its lethal sting.

    The birds were actually recruited by ISIS, It's there last type of anti-aircraft weaponry. Foiled again, next they are sending seagulls then eagles if all else fails.

    The F35 was moving so slowly the bird did not perceive any danger. Solution: Paint a photo of a falcon on the underside of the intake cover! ;-)
