Don't think there's much we don't already know, the type is Lockheed Martin F-35B Lightning II - no UK designation.

Not strictly true. The RAF designation is the "F-35B Lightning". As its the third aircraft to bear the name, it seemed a bit daft to include the "II".

Best tell the Air Secretariat that then, as that would mean they've released incorrect information under FOI... https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/ ... ng-1218825
