F-35B resumes flight operations in Arizona after brief pause

26 June 2017

Lockheed Martin F-35B Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) flight operations at US Marine Corps (USMC) Air Station Yuma in Arizona resumed on 23 June after a one-day pause due to an issue with the aircraft's information technology backbone.

The Marine Corps said late on 23 June that Major General Mark Wise, commanding general of the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, made the decision to temporarily suspend Marine Fighter Attack Squadron (VMFA)-211 flight operations pending fixes to a recent Automated Logistics Information System (ALIS) upgrade within version 2.0.2 that had presented some anomalies. USMC spokesman Major Kurt Stahl said on 22 June that the ALIS anomalies were related to maintenance codes not being properly reflected within ALIS.
