"Britain’s cutting-edge F-35 Lightning stealth fighter jets are expected to touch down on UK soil from as early as next week, it can be revealed.

The UK’s supersonic aircraft have been stationed in America since their manufacture, being tested and used for training by Royal Air Force and Royal Navy pilots.

Four of the jets, based at US Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, South Carolina, are due to cross the Atlantic in the first trip, with five following by the beginning of August.

Since their UK arrival was announced by Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson earlier this month, the jets are being prepared for the trip – which could happen any time from June 5, it is understood."

EDP: Plane spotters prepare to catch a glimpse of hi-tech F-35 stealth fighter arrive in Norfolk

"An increase in traffic is expected around a Norfolk airbase as people clamour to catch a glimpse of a hi-tech stealth fighter touching down in the UK for the first time.

The county is set to be at the forefront of Britain’s efforts to punch above its weight on the world stage when the multi-million pound F35-B aircraft touches down at its new home of RAF Marham in June.

The station has been busily preparing for the arrival of the warplanes with “unprecedented” stealth capabilities, investing £250m in new runways, hangars and a command centre bringing 1,200 construction jobs.

And their arrival is set to be hotly anticipated outside the base, with RAF Marham already preparing for high levels of interest from members of the public."
