The GR.7 series is part of the second generation of Harriers and replaced the older GR. 3. This variant is quite similar to the American designed AV-8B but is built under license and equipped with RAF specific navigation and defence systems and added under-wing pylons. The GR.7 is capable of carrying twice the load of the GR.3 or the same load twice as far. The GR.7 first flew in 1989 and entered service in 1990. Of the 96 GR.7 Harriers belonging to the RAF, 62 originally were GR.5s that were upgraded.

Marine Squadron 214 was commissioned in 1942 as the “Swashbucklers”. On September 7, 1943 VMF-214 was formed under the guidance of Major “Pappy” Boyington and given the name “Black Sheep”. Back then the squadron was equipped with Corsairs. In 1957 the VMF was changed to VMA-214. In 2000, using the wings and tail from AV-8B 162731 as well as a new fuselage and engine they created AV-8B Harrier II+ 165421. In 2009 the “Black Sheep” were deployed to Kandahar from May until November.
