Training pilots with Marine Attack Training Squadron 203, Marine Aircraft Group 14, 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing, conducted practice landings and take-offs at Marine Corps Auxiliary Landing Field Bogue, N.C., Jan. 18, 2017.

As the only site on the East Coast that offers Marine Corps pilots field carrier landing practice, the airfield is essential to improving expeditionary mission readiness by training pilots to land on aircraft carriers. The airfield consists of runways constructed from aluminum panels, which can be disassembled and reconstructed anywhere in the world to meet the needs of the Marine Corps.
