Delta flights are most likely DOD charters, flying troops between bases or to training...

Just a guess but those look like repositioning flights to/from a charter. What were the dates, maybe the Hawaii Bowl?

That's likely it - a lot of military charters end up with VCV as one of their points, and HNL is a rather large naval base.

Ferry flight after making up 8956 which was also a military charter.

Pearl Harbor-Hickam Joint Base (formerly Hickam Air Force Base.) The runways at HNL are shared by the civilian Honolulu International Airport and the military base, with flights bound for Hickam using the HIK airport code.
