Harrier pilots will train at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort from May 9 to 22, according to an air station press release.
A detachment of AV-8B Harriers from Marine Aircraft Group 14 will train at the air station for two weeks while an air show is held at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point in North Carolina.
