CG02/165356

Kinda strange if these are going back to CONUS. Four VMA-231 AV-8Bs (including CG01/02) arrived November 21st and two more last week.
Obviously not going back, then. Probably departing to somewhere on the Japanese mainland.

Any idea of callsigns, etc for the arrivals?. My usual Pacific sources have been quiet recently.

All,
The CG coded AV-8B+ aircraft started their six month deployment to MCAS Iwakuni in November 2014.
Four aircraft arrived on 21 November and an additional two aircraft arrived on 5 December.

Sorry no callsigns. Only other modex known (to me) is CG07.

Btw, VMA-542 changed modex from WH5x to WH0x early November and departed for CONUS Nov23th.
WH50/165307 -> WH00
WH51/165309 -> WH01
WH52/165354 -> WH02
WH53/165384 -> WH03
WH54/165428 -> WH04
WH55/166288 -> WH05
