USMC VMF-311 was established on December 1, 1942 and redesignated VMA-311 in 1957. On November 22, 1988, AV-8B Harrier 163664 was delivered to VMA-311 ‘Tomcats’. The squadron later took part in Operation Desert Storm and Desert Shield. In 2002 the wings, tail, and various other parts were added to a new fuselage that would become an AV-8B Harrier II+ and assigned new BuNo.165584, MSN B321. VMA-311’s home base is MCAS Yuma, Arizona and in February 2012 operated from USS Peleliu conducting deck landing qualifications during Iron Fist 2012.

The AV-8B Harrier II Plus is the second-generation Vertical and/or Short Take-Off and Landing (V/STOL) ground-attack aircraft operated by the U.S. Marine Corps. It is primarily used for light attack or multi-role tasks, typically operated from smaller carriers and large amphibious assault ships. The British Harrier GR7/GR9 are operated by the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy.
