The Queen commenced her visit at the new Lightning Operations Centre which is the first building to have been completed as part of Project Anvil, the project which is delivering the new infrastructure to support the F35B Lightning aircraft that will be based at RAF Marham. The first Lightning aircraft is due to arrive in the summer of 2018. The Lightning Operations Centre will be the Headquarters of the Lightning Force and provide through-life airworthiness management and a global to national interface in support of the UK F35 Lightning Force.

Lockheed Martin and BAE Systems are responsible for the delivery of the new buildings at RAF Marham. Aegis has been providing CDM Client Adviser services to BAE Systems throughout the construction phase of the project.
