Appears that VMAQ-4 went to Iwakuni.

As for VMFA-122, thanks for these tie-ups. Nothing noted on www.gonavy.jp yet. Two additional a/c observed on stopover at NFW on 10th January:

16426x (possibly 8?)/DC09
164221/DC10

Misawa should be a USN Growler det?.I had the impression this was set up in addition to the Iwakuni EA-6B UDP,which is intermittant these days at best.The days of the Prowler in the Far East are numbered.

A number of VMFA(AW)-224 jets are deployed further south from Iwakuni at this time.
