An F-35 jet arrives at its new operational base at Hill Air Force Base, in northern Utah, in 2015. The aircraft have been temporarily grounded for inspections after one crashed in South Carolina last month.

The grounding for all U.S. F-35s and those operated by international partners follows the crash of an aircraft last month in South Carolina, in which the pilot safely ejected.
