Video Shows Moment UK F-35 Jet Crashes Into Mediterranean Sea

A leaked video shows the moment when an F-35 combat jet belonging to the UK government crashed into the Mediterranean Sea last November 17 after failing to take off from the HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier.

The video was reportedly leaked from a Navy Whatsapp group just after the UK, US and NATO have offered reassurances that Russia will not get hold of the downed F-35 plane in the Mediterranean.

The allies vowed to retrieve the £100 million ($133.7 million) warplane from the seabed after Britain said the Russians had been paying close attention to HMS Queen Elizabeth, which carried the jet before it went down.

“We’ll get it first, I promise you,” said Brig Gen Simon Doran, the top-ranking US officer onboard the UK’s flagship aircraft carrier.
