Officials at Nellis AFB, Nevada, opened the base’s new Lightning Aircraft Maintenance Unit hangar in ceremonies on 18 March 2014. The new F-35 hangar will also have an addition will allow F135 engine maintenance to be conducted in the same facility the aircraft is stored in. Base officials noted that not moving an engine from one facility to another will make maintenance more efficient and ultimately reduce the amount of time the aircraft must remain on the ground.
