MARINE CORPS AIR STATION MIRAMAR, Calif. - U.S. Marine Corps Lt. Col. Cedar L. Hinton, commanding officer of Marine Wing Fighter Attack Squadron (VMFA) 314, Marine Aircraft Group (MAG) 11, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW), lands VMFA-314’s first F-35C Lightning II on Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, Calif., Jan. 21, 2020. The F-35C is designed and built explicitly for aircraft carrier operations, offering more robust landing gear, and control surfaces that were designed to make it more suitable for sea-based operations. The F-35C allows for faster response times to threats and assists in maritime security throughout the globe. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt. Charles Plouffe)
