Yuma's second F-35B, BF-20, flown by Maj. Aric Liberman, a pilot with the new squadron, arrives at Marine Corps Air Station Yuma's flight line following the re-designation ceremony for Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 121, Nov. 20. The Green Knights, formerly an F/A-18 Hornet squadron, is the Marine Corps' first operational F-35 squadron. This ceremony marks an important milestone for the Marine Corps and the Department of Defense as the F-35 progresses from a testing and training aircraft towards full-scale tactical aviation operations.
