Even as a colonial, I respect the ability and contributions the UK has made to the West's arsenal of democracy. For those that don't know, most of what makes a supercarrier super is British know-how. That includes cataputs, angle decks, elevators and (I believe) arresting gear. The British TSR1 was a magnificient aircraft as just as capable as the incredible Canadian plane that was so way ahead of its time that it scared enough people that it was totally wiped from existance. As far a black projects, I'm sure the RAF has its share of exotic aircraft or UAVs flying unknown to us all. Don't get me started otherwise I'll start talking about how much American music and TV is taken from the Top of the Pops (RIP) and the BBC!
