Any information on next squadron to Iwakuni under UDP? I would think VMFA(AW)-533 would be a likely candidate.

Hi,

The first six Hornets arrived at Hickam from Miramar this evening as FEUD 41-46 with three supporting KC-135s.
The second cell FEUD 51-56 had to return to Miramar due to nav equipment problems.

Seven (not six?) aircraft from VMFA(AW)-533 arrived in Japan on 24 March. PETRO 21/22 and 31/32 are scheduled for HIK to CONUS on the 28th--might some of these be dragging VMFA(AW)-224? Also, RCH 296 is scheduled for HIK-NBC (Beaufort) on the 28th.

Mark, 164261 is their (new) CAG, no side number was carried.
Another Hornet was seen last week with only -122 unit markings and side nr 00. Clean tail, no DC modex, but with NAVY applied....

Thanks Mr DJ. -122 must be swapping round their jets then as the tie ups I was given were from that same week.

I was given 164222 for DC00 which would make it ex VFA-83?
