Well, I am officially becoming historic now.
Boeing Rolls Out US Navy's P-8A Poseidon
So it's only a matter of time before the P-3 goes away. Of course, the Navy has been flying the poop out of them over Iraq and Afghanistan. Hard to imagine since there are no submarines in either place :<> but they do carry a lot of gas, fly a long time, and have a lot of sensors and folks to operate them.
So, now I am feeling really ancient...not quite like those manly men who flew B-17s in World War 2...those guys had BIG CAJONES...but nonetheless a little nostalgic.
