Royal Australian Air Force pilot describes flying with VMFA(AW) 224


“Hi, I’m Flight Lieutenant Daley McLeod
I am an F-A-M pilot with VMFA-224, the “Bengals”, from MCAS Beaufort in South Carolina. Orignially, though, I am an Australian F-A-M
pilot on a three year exchange with the United States Marine Corps. I decided to join the Australian military
ironically from spending time in America, and going to a lot of American air-shows. Being exposed to a lot of U.S. military aviation
that kind of got me on the path to become a pilot and join the Royal Australian Air
Force. “He’s a really solid aviator, really knows
what he is talking about. brings a lot of good experiences from Australia
over to our Squadron that we can take a lot of learning from.” “I would describe the work ethic of the
Marines. No one week is the same. They’re very quick to adapt to a new work
week and new challenges or struggles that are associated with that. I have really enjoyed my time with the “Bengals”,
been lucky enough to stick with the “Bengals”, to travel all the way to Europe and now all
the way to Japan with the “Bengals”.
