F-35 Helmet Cam Footage Of Shipborne Rolling Vertical Landing (SRVL)

Published April 20, 2021

Unique footage shows a reportedly rare landing maneuver performed by a British Royal Navy F-35 pilot onto the HMS Queen Elizabeth.


The pilot conducts a Shipborne Rolling Vertical Landing (SRVL), which is used to land a Vertical/Short Take Off Landing aircraft using both the vertical thrust from the jet engine and lift from the wings. This allows for a rolling landing with a significantly reduced approach speed and landing distance.


But what is the point, you may be asking... The SRVL maneuver allows the aircraft to land without first dumping access fuel and ammunition into the sea to lighten its load. Therefore, it can be packed to the brim with payload and no-one will worry about wasting ammo and polluting the ocean. Additionally, the technique has no need for a tail hook and arresting cable to bring the aircraft to a stop.
