Two weeks after rolling out the newly-christened F-35 Lightning II, Lockheed Martin was at Farnborough today talking about the programme's future, and Flight TV was there to ask how the company is going to resolve international tensions over risk-sharing and technology-transfer.

We have pictures of Eurofighter's Typhoon in the flying display and Kieran Daly talks to the programme director about its export possibilities.

And one of the Royal Air Force's most experienced submarine-hunters tells us why this week's decision by the UK government to go ahead with building BAE Systems' Nimrod MR4 Nimrod is so important for operational squadrons.

We'll be back on Wednesday, when Murdo Morrison will take a look at what's happening on the third day of this spectacular show.
