An updated log. Camera indicates that the serial / Bu No were read off from an image. Scramble db indicates that the serial was assumed from tying up the codes to the unit markings.

Oscar, not all of these were flying. Some were photographed on the dispersal from the Car park opposite the terminal and for the helicopters, the car park across the bay.

Seems there are some errors:
162166/46 VRC-40
162166 is 635 of VAW-120
164862/BJ-544 HM-14
should be 164861
164772/BJ-540 HM-14
is w/o 10aug00, should be 164771
164773/BJ-552 HM-14
164773 is BJ-551

Many thanks for the corrections Melchior. However, 162166 was still in the markings of and coded as a VRC-40 machine.

Melchior, I stand corrected and apologise for any confusion caused. I have had a closer look at the image on my computer and can confirm that the aircraft in question is C-2A 46 162159 of VRC-40 and not 162166 as originally thought.
