Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “First F-35 landing on Royal Navy’s new aircraft carrier goes awry after pilot trips and falls on his FACE (VIDEO)”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The slapstick comedy scene was captured on CCTV footage that was later leaked on the internet. The video shows the moments after the F-35 Lighting pilot climbed out of his fighter jet.
