I have a lot of hours on that plane. It just recently got new wings to support another many years of weather research.

Great shot! I enjoyed flying those and chasing russian subs during the cold war.

I used to work those in and out of Glenview Naval Station (NBU) in Chicago. They did a great job of keeping Lake Michigan clear of German submarines!(or so we controllers joked with the pilots.)Glenview is but a memory and now I get to watch their dwindling numbers at NAS JAX as the new jets (737 derivative) take over. Never had a fam trip in one, however. Did fly in L-188's with Eastern in the old days.

P-3.s fly over my house several times a week doing training. I live near the Pasco, WA airport which was a naval training base during the war. They fly in circles doing touch and gos and sometimes full stop landings. If I'm outside, I always wave at them but I doubt that they can see me.

They used to fly them dailey out of NAS Jax. Love to watch and listen every time one flew over me When they landed at N S Mayport. Now I think they use a P-8
WOW! So much depth. Thank you
