Yes, but the thing is that the Miramar mission just ended, where the aircraft have been flying as BACN relays for several years now.
Most likely they were working with NG, and with some ships off shore. I've been by that NG facility, and they have their own airfield there that
they could fly out of if necessary.
Now this is interesting, apparently there has been a schedule change to 928's deployments. BACN JUON 2012 I&T went until the 19th of September.
Immediately afterward, it went into a Payload and Comm Systems check, until October 8th. From the 9th of October, until the 30th of October, it goes
into minor maintenance/engineering mods. Then a week of I&T, from the 31st, until November 6th. From November 7th, until January 4th it's deployed.
It comes back on the 4th, goes into predeployment, and deploys again on the 7th, until September.
At the same time 926 is deployed until December 7th, comes home, and goes into PDM until March. It comes out of PDM on March 3rd, and deploys March
4th until September 30th.
