162877 F/A-18A VMFA-314/VW-00
162442 F/A-18A VMFA-314/VW-01
(163094) F/A-18A VMFA-314/VW-02
162849 F/A-18A VMFA-314/VW-03
162451 F/A-18A VMFA-314/VW-04
162466 F/A-18A VMFA-314/VW-05

163094 the serial is worn away, tied up by a 3 month old photo where you could just about read the serial to code and scramble database hence why its in brackets as it wasn't readable today
