    MARINE CORPS AIR STATION CHERRY POINT, N.C. — Maj. Andrew S. Burchfield, the executive officer for Personnel Support Detachment 14, Marine Aircraft Group 14, 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing, based out of Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, is scheduled to perform an AV-8B Harrier level III flight demonstration during the Sun n’ Fun International Fly-in and Expo in Lakeland, Fla., March 27 through April 1.

    The Harrier level III demonstration is one of the most sought-after aerial demonstrations offered by the U.S. military. Demonstrations are performed by the same aircraft and Marines who train and deploy in support of real-world contingencies, including on-going operations in Afghanistan.

    Burchfield is one of a small, select group of pilots who are hand-picked by Headquarters Marine Corps to demonstrate the capabilities of the AV-8B Harrier II to the public.

    The purpose of level III demonstrations is to show the American public the skills of their Marine pilots and the capabilities of the world famous vertical-takeoff jet.
