Another step on the road to low-viz Orions is illustrated by this one in "halfway" colors and markings; the color scheme and national insignia are old style, but the sqn. markings are low-viz gray. This aircraft is assigned to Patrol Sqn. 5 Mad Foxes at NAS Jacksonville, FL, and their specialty in markings arose from the P-2 Neptune era. A prominently marked magnetic compass panel on the tail, was made to look like a door with the sqn. Fox standing in it, holding a hammer. This shows only the fox's head.
