Production of F-35 Will Be Stopped Due to Coronavirus


Coronavirus measures around the world caused the cancellation of various fairs. The virus also caused production lines to be stopped. The number of virus cases in Japan surpassed a thousand people on March 4, according to reports from the World Health Organization and local media.

Lockheed Martin and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries plan to shut down production at the F-35’s Final Assembly and Check-Out facility in Nagoya, Japan the week of 9-13 March due to fears of coronavirus contagion. Several news reports also said that production in Nagoya, Japan had already halted, but Lockheed says it plans to operate until next week. “A lot of people were reporting that it is currently closed,” the company says. “That is not accurate.”

Lockheed Martin says it plans to continually assess the situation in Japan in consultation with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, the Joint Program Office and local health officials.

Lockheed Martin is claimed to take similar measures in Italy where virus cases have been seen.
