The Ministry of Defence (MoD) said no offer had been“made or requested”to allow US planes to use HMS Queen Elizabeth, but sources said letting US pilots fly from the British carrier before the British F-35B fighter jets are ready could benefit the ship’s crew by building up their experience.

MoD insiders said the US Marine Corps would be offered the use of HMS Queen Elizabeth for flight operations.

The first sea trials of the new British F-35B planes will begin in 2018, with one squadron expected to be ready to launch air strikes from the carriers by the end of 2020 or the beginning of 2021.
