The US will be forced to spend between $500 million and $600 million to shift the F-35 supply chain from Turkey to other countries, a number dwarfed by the $9 billion worth of work Turkey will forfeit in the coming years now that it is being removed from the program, Pentagon officials said today.

Likewise, Turkish pilots and maintainers being trained in the US have been told to leave by the end of July.
