The F-35 stealth fighter is being built at Lockheed Martin in Fort Worth, next to the base where they may be located eventually.

The U.S. Air Force will host a public meeting from 5-8 p.m. April 19 to discuss an environmental impact study that will help determine if operating 24 F-35 aircraft will have an impact on Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base. The meeting will be at Cendera Center, 3600 Benbrook Hwy.

The Air Force is considering placing a squadron of F-35 fighter jets at the base in west Fort Worth. Officials are seeking comment from local, state and federal agencies, elected officials and residents to determine the scope of the impact study.

If the Fort Worth base is selected, the F-35s would start arriving in 2025.
