Hi Adraf, did you take photos or just read the numbers? I'm curious: did you see any Growlers With the new underwing New Generation Jammer (NGJ) pods?

I did take photos, these will appear on https://www.flickr.com/adraf from time to time. Most Growlers were flying in a more or less clean config though.

If RWY 32 is being used, is there any spot you can read the serials? (Maybe west corner W Sullivan Rd?). Or better not waste time there?

Seen the 10th of April. Beautiful weather and runway 25 in use. Lots of heatwaves though.

Two new codes seen: AG-502 and NJ-526. I think the NJ-526 buno ended with a 0. Anyone for the buno's?

Need to check a "confirmed" ID there - VAQ-132 NL-542 had changed from BuNo 168931 to 166932 by 2.24. NL-543 was l/n as BuNo 168381 2.24.

Also VAQ-131's NL-554 and NL-555 were last noted at the start of the month as BuNos 168903 and 169128 respectively.

Cheers

Not 100 percent confirmed but NJ526 might be 168390.

AG502 is 169400 seen Mar24

What does the underline mean? Unconfirmed or taken from a database?

Regards

Hi Mike, thanks! Indeed NL-542 needed to be underlined as per my notes, could not read it properly. Corrected it by underlining. All the underlined were from DB.
