The UK will undertake maintenance of the F-35 aircraft at RAF Marham when the aircraft arrives in 2018. In the event that any maintenance is required which cannot be conducted at RAF Marham then this will be conducted at one of a number of locations around the world as part of the Global Support Solution.

Defence Electronics and Components Agency Sealand has been chosen by the F-35 Joint Programme Office as the global repair hub for avionic and aircraft components for all F-35 Lightning aircraft.
