Three USS Ronald Reagan fighter-jet squadrons relocate from Atsugi to Iwakuni

YOKOSUKA NAVAL BASE, Japan — Three USS Ronald Reagan fighter-jet squadrons arrived at their new home Tuesday, the latest step in transferring the bulk of Naval Air Facility Atsugi’s Carrier Air Wing 5 to Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni.

Strike Fighter Squadrons 115 and 195 and Electronic Attack Squadron 141 turned up at Iwakuni after participating in the carrier strike group’s routine fall patrol, the Navy said in a statement Tuesday.

Capt. Michael Wosje, Carrier Air Wing 5’s commander, said the arrival of the first F/A-18 squadrons is an important step forward for the phased relocation.
