Col. Michael Cederholm, Commanding Office, Marine Aircraft Group, Marine Air Station Beaufort was at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida last week to welcome the Marine Corps new generation of jets to used by the Marine Corp’s attack group, securing the base’s future.

Construction began in September on a new training and flight simulator facility at Beaufort, a $351.8 million makeover of the air station must undergo prior to the jet's expected arrival in 2013 or 2014.

The F-35B will replace all of the F-18s now flown. The General told a local newspaper in Hilton Head, "This is not just about a jet…this is a paradigm shift that only makes the Marine Corps, and the United States, stronger. This is a big step, and one that brings us closer to receiving the jet in Beaufort."

The Navy announced in December 2010 that it would be assigning five Joint Strike Fighter squadrons to Beaufort MCAS, 88 jets in all.
