There are three variants - the standard F-35A, designed for conventional takeoff, the F-35B for short take off and vertical landing, and the F-35C which is designed for use on carriers. F-35 FIGHTER PROFILE Aircrew: One Max speed: 1.6Mach (1,217.3mph) Length: 51ft Wingspan: 35ft Max. altitude: 50,000ft Today marks the first time an F-35C has been landed on a carrier using the tail-hook system, where a large metal hook hanging from the back of the aircraft snags on a cable laid across the deck of the carrier, slowing it down very quickly. Joe DellaVedova, spokesman for the Pentagon's F-35 joint program office, said the landing was part of a two-week sea-based test that runs until November 17.

The Incat shipyard, located in Australia has recently finished building what they call the world's fastest ship. Just because ships are bulky, doesn't mean they have to be slow. The Incat shipyard, located in Australia has recently finished building what they call the world's fastest ship. Named Francisco, two GE gas turbines rest on top of Boeing 747 engines, which power a set of water jets. The turbines produce a combined 59,000 horse power. They will turn a gearbox which drives an impeller. Those actions generate a water jet. A program manager with GE Power and Water stated "We had to redesign the fuel manifold and the fuel delivery system. But we have of a lot of experience in the marine environment. We've accumulated millions of hours powering ships, oil and gas rigs, and other...
Operation of ship jet propulsion at sea
This educational video is shows the Boeing built hydrofoils named after Tucumcari, New Mexico, the design basis for the technology used in the subsequent United States Pegasus-class patrol boats and the Jet-foil ferries. Its unique feature was a water-jet propulsion and a computer-controlled fully submerged foil configuration of one foil at the bow and foils on the port and starboard sides. The Tucumcari was one of two prototype boats contracted by the Navy for the purpose of evaluating the latest hydrofoil technology with a fast top speed of 50 knots. The second boat was the rival Grumman built USS Flagstaff (PGH-1).
