USMC Squadron 214 was commissioned in 1942 as the Swashbucklers. On September 7 1943 VMF-214 was formed under the guidance of Gregory "Pappy" Boyington and given the name “Black Sheep” equipped with F4U Corsairs. In 1957 the VMF was changed to VMA-214. In 2000 using the wings and tail from AV-8B 162731 as well as a new fuselage and engine they created AV-8B Harrier II+ 165421. In 2009 the “Black Sheep” were deployed to Kandahar, Afghanistan from May until November.

The first Harrier II was the AV-8B. In 1984 development of the AV-8B(NA) Night Attack Harriet II began with the addition of a NAVFLIR (Navigation Forward-Looking Infrared) camera in the nose along with night vision goggles. New multi-function displays were added as well as an improved heads-up display, color CRT display, and complete heads-down capability. This Harrier version also received additional counter-measure dispensers and Rolls-Royce Pegasus 11-61 vectored thrust turbofan engine.
