The first Italian F-35A Lightning II has rolled out of the Cameri Final Assembly and Check Out (FACO) facility on March 12.

This first F-35A to be assembled outside of Lockheed Martin’s Fort Worth plant, the aircraft, designated as AL-1, will proceed to additional check-out activities before its anticipated first flight later this year.

As well as building all Italian F-35A and F-35B aircraft, the facility is programmed to build aircraft for the Royal Netherlands Air Force, and has the capacity to deliver to other European customers in the future.

In December 2014 the Cameri FACO facility was selected as the F-35 heavy airframe maintenance, repair, overhaul and upgrade facility for the European region.
