RAF Marham Will Be Home to the UK’s F-35s

 

Defence Secretary Phillip Hammond has announced that the future Joint Strike Fighter, the F-35, will be stationed at the base.

The announcement confirms the future of the Norfolk base until at least 2040 and secures up to 5,000 more jobs for the area. RAF Marham will serve as a joint base for the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy aircraft and will be responsible for support and maintenance of both land-based and aircraft carrier F-35s.

“This is extremely good news for this station, extremely good news for this community and extremely good news for the RAF and Royal Navy,” Mr Hammond said. “I know you will share with me the excitement of having the world’s most advanced fighter aircraft based here and operating from here.”
