On 5 April 2024, the first East Coast-assigned CMV-22B Osprey for Fleet Logistics Multi-Mission Squadron (VRM) 40 Mighty Bisons ('JM-xx'), arrived at Naval Station Norfolk (VA).

The Osprey will enhance the fleet’s medium-lift and long-range aerial logistics capability, gradually replacing the C-2A Greyhounds of Fleet Logistics Support Squadron (VRC) 40 Rawhides, over the next several years. The squadron’s relocation to Naval Station Norfolk marks their permanent duty station change from Naval Air Station (NAS) North Island, in preparation to provide fleet logistic aviation assets to the Atlantic Fleet starting in 2025. The remaining VRM-40 tilt rotors are set to arrive in the summer of 2024.

VRM-40 was established alongside its existing sister squadron, VRM-30 Titans ('DC-xx'), and the training squadron, VRM-50 Sun Hawks ('SB'-xx), at NAS North Island in March 2022.
