Bogue Marine Corps Auxiliary Landing Field ICAO: KNJM. serves as the Marine Corpsí only East Coast site for Field Carrier Landing Practice. It served as a training facility primarily for AV-8 Harriers from Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point.
By performing many of these landings at night, pilots simulate landing on an aircraft carrier which provides the force trained personnel..

It is also used for practice approaches by KC-130 Hercules transports from MCAS Cherry Point, F/A-18 Hornet fighters from MCAS Beaufort and helicopters from MCAS New River.

Currently it is a testbed for the new F-35 aircraft in the USMC version replacing the Harrier.
