    Marine Corps Air Station Yuma

    F-35B pilot instructor Maj. A. C. Liberman greets Yuma-based Marines upon his arrival to Marine Corps Air Station Yuma after flying in Third Marine Aircraft Wing's first F-35B to the station flightline, Nov. 16. The arrival of the aircraft marks the beginning of a new chapter in Marine Corps aviation history, bringing the latest and greatest aircraft in the world to the tip of America's expeditionary spear. The arrival of the F-35B to MCAS Yuma highlights next week's official re-designation of Marine All Weather Fighter Attack Squadron 121, an F/A-18 Hornet Squadron, as the world's first operational F-35 squadron at MCAS Yuma. MCAS Yuma is scheduled to receive four operational squadrons consisting of up to 16 aircraft plus one Operational Testing and Evaluation (OT&E) squadron with up to 8 aircraft.
