USMC VMFAT-101 “Sharpshooters”

Prior to the 2015 Yuma Airshow at MCAS Yuma in Arizona a couple of US Marine Corps McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet multi-role fighters from Marine Fighter Attack Training Squadron VMFAT-101Sharpshooters (based at MCAS Miramar) fired up their engines, rolled out onto the tarmac and with a loud roar took off into the skies on another valuable training mission. VMFAT-101 is responsible for training highly skilled combat ready USMC aircrews. They were not part of the airshow but it is always cool to see some fast jets flying around anywhere and anytime!
