At first glance, this is just another anonymous Orion from the period when all squadron markings were deleted across the fleet (because of Khadaffi's death threat to VP-56). However, the truncated tail boom suggests something unusual, and this is in fact a heavily modified old A-model used for fleet electronic warfare training. An aircraft of VAQ-33 Firebirds, Golf Delta 130 is climbing away from Dobbins to return to its Key West, FL base after a hurricane evacuation stay.
