On October 21, an F-35B fifth generation fighter jet made a vertical landing on the British Royal Navy aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth in Arabian Sea near Mumbai. The aircraft is in India for a joint exercise of Indian and UK forces off the Mumbai coast. F-35B fifth generation aircraft can conduct air-to-surface, electronic warfare, intelligence gathering and air-to-air missions simultaneously.
