Farnborough Air Show organisers have confirmed that the F-35B Lightning II fighter jet, one of the star attractions set for this year's event, will not be appearing.
The US Department of Defense refused to let any F-35s cross the Atlantic from a base in America after one suffered an engine fire on a Florida runway last month.
The Pentagon's press secretary, Navy Rear Admiral, John Kirby, described the decision as "difficult".
"While we're disappointed that we're not going to be able to participate in the air show, we remain fully committed to the programme itself and look forward to future opportunities to showcase its capabilities to allies and to partners," he said.
Meanwhile, the air show organisers, Farnborough International Limited, described the F-35's withdrawal as "disappointing" but also said they "support the stance to never compromise safety of either pilots or show participants".
