description=Strike Fighter Squadron EIGHTY SIX (VFA-86)\nBased: NAS Lemoore, CA.\nWing: CVW-2(NE)\nShip: USS Ronald Reagan(CVN-76)\nCallsign: "Winder"\nBuNo: 166950\n\nIn the fall of 2008, the Sidewinders changed operational commanders and joined CVW-11 and the NIMITZ Strike Group as they readied for a 2009 deployment. In July 2009, the squadron once again departed MCAS Beaufort and headed west, deploying as part of the NIMITZ-BARBWIRE team and Carrier Strike Group ELEVEN. The Strike Group entered the 5th Fleet Area of Responsibility in September of 2009 and spent the following five months flying combat sorties in support of OEF. The USS NIMITZ Carrier Strike Group completed its Western Pacific deployment in March of 2010 with the Sidewinders accumulating a total of 4,200 flight hours and 1,350 sorties. The Sidewinders of VFA-86 had successfully completed their fifth deployment flying combat sorties in support of OEF.\n\nIn March of 2010, the squadron returned to MCAS Beaufort, SC. The Sidewinders maintained their high level of readiness as they readied themselves to turn a new page in their history with a move to NAS Lemoore, CA and transition to the FA-18E Super Hornet. They are currently assinged to CVW-2 and are due to deploy aboard the USS Ronald Reagan.
