Nice picture of this Orion..
Sweet. My ride from 1973-1977, Brunswick, ME, VP-8. Allison T-56, 4,600 hp each. APU exhaust was right under the co-pilot, noisy. 330kts cruise.

I worked on this aircraft off and on for 4 years form 2010-2019 in VP-47. The squadron's share aircraft during deployments. Very reliable aircraft, it's avionics were always in good shape in comparison to other Orions. I will miss them when they are finally retired. I was an AT1 with VP-47 and truly miss working on these aircraft.
What a great shot of a great plane

Used to work them in and out of NBU (Glenview Naval Station) near Chicago. Looked up Glenview one day and found that the field is GONE! Just a memory now--just a plaque is left.

I used to live under the approach Moffet NAS when they had several squadrons of them based there.... Loved to watch them buzz overhead as they returend back to base... one after the other only minutes apart
Worked with the A & B models out of Barbers Point, HI, 1970-1974.VP-17. Hard to believe they are being replaced by Boeing 737's. Great shot !!
