Quoting Thorny (Reply 2): (brave of them, considering the Wedgetail fiasco.)
I don't think this will be like the Wedgetail. The RAAF was the first customer for Wedgetail, and absorbed most of the developement costs. In the case of the P-8 program the USN is the launch customer.

Quoting Thorny (Reply 2): Australia has indicated they'll be buying it as well
Haven't seen any direct indication regarding P-8 but there have been statements regarding the integration of a new ASW platform.
Not sure what other real alternatives there might be.(how many times can you warm over the P-3?)
If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!
