F-35B 168726/DC-02 VMFA-122
AV-8B 165419/WE-, 165569/(WE-) VMA-214

And to add from my son's and a friend's photos:

VMA-311 (red engine covers):
Can confirm that 164553 was indeed coded WL-00
Add 165002/WL-07 and another coded WL-04.

VMA-214 (blue engine covers):
Confirm that WE-12 is 165566
Add 165577/WE-10

It looks like we are getting close to identifying all of the ones under the sunshades. Many thanks for the contributions to the thread guys.

For the record, 165001/WE-01 was in the static, 165429/WE-06 and 165006/WE-09 both flew and 165417/uncoded (but with VMA-214 tail markings) was the spare on the flightline.
