In addition, the F-35 programme, which Lockheed Martin is leading, will generate US$1bn per year for the UK economy at its peak, with 15% of every jet produced being made in the UK, securing a further 24,000 jobs.

The people of Lockheed Martin are critical to our success as a business – their work making a difference, every day.
