In the scene in Avengers: Endgame stated as "Morag 2014", we see Hawkeye/Ronin and Black Widow take off on the Benatar. The scene is a replica of the opening scene from GotG I, where Quill lands on Morag to grab "the Power Orb", later to find out its the Power Stone.

However, if I'm not mistaken, the Benatar doesn't even exist yet because it was a restoration of the ship (the Milano....?) that got destroyed when Ronan's ship crashes on Xandar.

So in Endgame, how do Barton and Romanov end up flying the Benatar, a ship which hasn't been built yet, to Vormir?

Because they brought it with them.

Before going on the Time Heist, they shrunk it down and we see it in Hawkeye's hand

Hawkeye with the tiny Benatar

As the Power Stone and Soul Stone were off Earth, the Benatar traveled back to 2014, first dropping off Nebula and War Machine on Morag before Hawkeye and Black Widow used it to travel to Vormir.

    and I always thought that was, like, a car key to the ship... – enorl76 Aug 28 at 2:31

    Rocket even says "You promise to bring that back in one piece, right?" and Clint's like "yeah,yeah, I'll try" – MovieMe Aug 28 at 6:21

    @enorl76 It's a bit of a callback to the Antman movies, where they actually had "miniaturized" cars as keychains :P It's one of the small bonuses of having watched all of the movies in the MCU. – Luaan Aug 28 at 12:28

    @enorl76 Whatever problems Lang was having with his suit, they appear to have been taken care of by this point, as he uses his shrinking/growing powers quite a few times in the movie. Granted, mostly on himself, but whatever. He's got both Stark and Banner around who could probably have fixed him up in between working on the time machine thing. – Darrel Hoffman Aug 28 at 13:17

    There's no particular, ahem, time pressure at this point, so the Avengers have plenty of days/weeks/months/years to perfect the miniaturization technology before heading through the time tunnel. – jeffronicus Aug 28 at 21:26
