Picking up some crosswinds on short final rwy15. It must be very tricky to land this Orion on crosswind conditions due to the large rectangular antenna on the top of the fuselage. This NP-3D belongs to the VX-30, Air Test and Evaluation Squadron Three Zero "Bloodhounds", based at NAS Point Mugu, California. [Canon 350D + 100-400L IS USM]

From the thumbnail, I thought we had a TriStar landing.

Looks like a P-3 trying to be an L-1011
