VMFA-211 history began on January 1, 1937 when they were activated as VF-4M. In May 1942 the squadron adopted the name “Wake Island Avengers”. Over the years the squadron has also been designated as VMF-2 and VMF-211. On May 6, 2016, VMF-211 flew their last flight of the AV-8B Harrier II and on May, 9, 2016 they received their first two Lockheed F-35B Lightning IIs making them the second Marine Corps squadron equipped with this aircraft. On June 30, 2016 VMF-211 became VMFA-211.

The Lockheed F-35 Lightning II is a fifth generation multi-role fighter aircraft that combines radar evading stealth technology with supersonic speed and extreme agility. The three variants of the F-35 Lightning II are the A, B, and C. The F-35A is the conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) variant. It features two internal weapons bays and six external hardpoints for mounting a variety of weapons under the wings plus an internal 25 mm cannon. The F-35B is the short takeoff and vertical landing (STOVL) variant while the F-35C is the carrier-based variant. It was designed to replace the U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon, U.S. Navy F/A-18 Hornet and the U.S. Marine Corps F/A-18 Hornet and AV-8 Harrier II.

The F-35 was first flown on December 15, 2006 and is scheduled to enter operational service in the coming years with the United States military and the air forces of several other nations that were partners in the development of the aircraft.
