Created as VMF-314 in 1943 the squadron was known as the “Bob Cats”. In 1957 they became VMF(AW)-314 Black Knights and in 1961 they became VMFA-314 and were the first USMC unit to equip with the F-4B Phantom II. 2019 saw the “Black Knights” begin transitioning to the F-35C Lightning II and once again were the first USMC unit to fly new aircraft types. F-35C 169601 was the first aircraft to receive VMFA-314 markings and in June 2019 it was on display at an air show at Tinker AFB, OK. VMFA-314 makes it home at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, California.Opening canopy

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 Lightning II are the F-35A, 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 aircraft carrier-based variant. The F-35 was developed 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.
