Britain will be the global repair shop for the new and highly controversial F-35 fighter jet program, it has been announced.
Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said on Monday that the move, which will see Britain service all European F-35s at a facility in North Wales, will have positive economic and defense implications.
“This establishes Britain as a hub for all European F-35s and is hugely positive news for our high-tech and innovative defence industry,” he said.
