HMS Queen Elizabeth returned to the UK on Monday following a four-month deployment off the coast of the United States.
The carrier has been taking part in flight trials after making her arrival in the US in September and successfully crossing the Atlantic Ocean.
F-35B aircraft landed on the deck of the UK's new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth for the first time in September.
The landing was completed by US aircraft, flown by British pilots.

The Carrier's Recent History
The carrier was commissioned into the Royal Navy by her namesake on December 7, 2017.
The Royal Navy's first £3 billion aircraft carrier arrived at her new home in Portsmouth on August 16, 2017 amid a comprehensive sea trial programme.
The team responsible for controlling the vessel's future strike force have previously taken part in a US-UK exercise.
Saxon Warrior 2017 saw more than 60 Royal Navy and Royal Marine personnel direct carrier strike operations from the deck of the USS George HW Bush to practise for the arrival of HMS Queen Elizabeth.
The biggest warship ever built in Britain has been undergoing sea trials since setting sail from Rosyth dockyard in June.
The Royal Navy live streamed the 280-metre, 65,000-tonne vessel leaving the Rosyth on the Firth of Forth at the end of June.
A Merlin helicopter was the first to land on the ship's flight deck, piloted by 26-year-old Lieutenant Luke Wraith.
HMS Queen Elizabeth can be thought of as a base like RAF Marham at sea and could carry up to 72 aircraft at maximum capacity.
During her estimated 50-year working life, HMS Queen Elizabeth could be pressed into action for various work such as high-intensity war fighting or providing humanitarian aid and disaster relief anywhere in the world.
The carrier has been subject to criticism due to its computer system, which reportedly runs on the same operating system that was hit by a cyber attack in May, and to its security measures, which were challenged after an unauthorised drone landed on her dock.
The History Of British Aircraft Carriers
The Royal Navy has seen 16 different classes of aircraft carriers take to the sea since 1918, with between one and 10 ships commissioned for each class.
HMS Queen Elizabeth is both a new ship and a new class of aircraft carrier, and will be joined by her sister ship HMS Prince of Wales in 2019.
Before them, Britain relied on the Invincible class, which included HMS Invincible, HMS Illustrious, and HMS Ark Royal, commissioned respectively in 1980, 1982, and 1985.
Unlike the earlier carriers, these two most recent classes have used gas turbine engines to one degree or another.

The engines of previous carriers were powered by boilers and geared turbines.
The first class of aircraft carrier was HMS Argus. It was laid down in 1914, and finally commissioned in 1918, and could carry 18 aircraft.
The Glorious class could carry 36 to 48 aircraft. Glorious, Courageous, and Furious, were commissioned beween 1916 and 1917.
British carriers did not take on the modern look, with a control tower protruding above the flight-deck, until HMS Eagle was commissioned as the only ship in her class in 1924.
