U.S. Marine Corps Maj. Daniel Belet, an F-35B Lightning II jet pilot with Marine Fighter Attack Squadron (VMFA) 542, taxis down the runway at Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida, Sept. 12, 2023. The Naval Weapon System Evaluation Program allowed VMFA-542 to safely conduct the loading and firing of live missiles at threat-realistic targets to test the squadrons' ability, flexibility, and procedures while repositioned in unfamiliar locations. VMFA-542 is a subordinate unit of 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing, the aviation combat element for II Marine Expeditionary Force. (U.S. Marine Corps by Christopher Hernandez)
