UK MoD says:
MOD awarding a 160m contract to Kier VolkerFitzpatrick to build a F-35 flight simulator, maintenance unit, new hangars and storage facilities at RAF Lakenheath. This will ready the Suffolk airbase for two squadrons of US F-35s,

Since this is a US base, and these facilities are for USAF aircraft, I have to wonder why the UK MoD is paying for it. Yes I know it's called RAF Lakenheath, but that's just a treaty thing - all USAF bases in UK are called RAF Whatever. Doesn't mean we have to pay for them. Or are we just sucking up to POTUS?
