Yes, British F-35 engines must be sent to Turkey for overhaul

Easy Resolution

MoD buys a couple of extra engines over and above the current spares plan and when they need to be overhauled you chuck a batch into the back of a C17 and fly them to the US rather than Turkey for the overhaul. You bring the recently overhauled ones back. You're only sending the engine, not the F35 itself. There's not much difference in Turkey/US once you've loaded up the transport and put it into the air.
