Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort is home to the Marine Corps' Atlantic Coast fixed-wing, fighter-attack aircraft assets.
It's among the United States military's most important and most historically colorful installations.
Consisting of some 6,900 acres, the installation is home to seven Marine Corps F/A- 18 squadrons. Two additional Navy F/A-18 squadrons joined the Fightertown community in March 2000. Three versions of the F/A-18 Hornet are found aboard MCAS Beaufort, the F/A-18 Hornet A/Cs and the F/A-18 D.
