Infrastructure works to prepare RAF Marham for the arrival of the F-35B Lightning multi-role combat aircraft next year are well underway at the Norfolk base. Over £500m is being invested in new infrastructure under the banner of Project Anvil, named after a type of lightning.

When 617 Squadron, the Dambusters, arrive at RAF Marham next summer they will benefit from an extensive project which will includes the construction of the management, maintenance, training and operational facilities required for the new aircraft, and the refurbishment of 90% the airfield operating surfaces.

Project Anvil spans across the Station with eight main development sites during which time RAF Marham has continued to deliver high tempo Tornado GR4 operations.
