P2V-5F. Gives new meaning to the term "jet prop." The original "hybrid" aircraft.

Are we post war and passenger transport?
Can see the shadow of a military might. Nice one.

I flew the Navy's last operational mission in this beast. Strong airplane but a true "Truckulent Turtle".....

Didn't this one have 4360's!

Make that "Truculent Turtle". The P2V-5F had R-3350-32W engines rated at 3500 HP... Augmented by two J34 jets rated at 3250 lbs of thrust. They both used a common fuel system which was 115/145 Avgas. An explosive combination...

Neptune Air Service........I used to fly for them, then went to Aero Union and flew P-3's until the Forest Service shut them down.

Loved watching these planes as a kid in Okinawa, Naha NAF, 1960's, we lived right across the HWY from the hangers. They were my favorite acrft back then.
