The US military has temporarily grounded its entire fleet of F-35 fighter jets in the wake of a crash in South Carolina last month.
Inspections are to be carried out on faulty fuel tubes.
An official report questioned earlier this year whether the F-35 was ready for combat after dozens of faults were found.
Put this here as the item has the first landings on the new carrier that I've seen.
Hopefully all rectified soon.

A couple of questions.
Does the US Navy still operate ski-deck carriers, and what could the portable tower structure at the bow area be(26 secs)?

I don't think that the US NAVY ever operated ski-deck "carriers" proper.

I'm not sure about the smaller carrier-like ships, though.
