Nice shot of a unique Orion with an air of mystery about it.

Great shot. This is a long shot and odds are it's probably not the case but I go to school at TSTC-Waco, and there's atleast 4 of these, and maybe one or 2 of them in the same configuration shown here. I try to do as much spotting at KCNW as I can and I've seen em doing pattern work, who knows if it came from there, but I suppose it's possible no?

Nice photo. I used to fly P-3s and I had friends who did tours with this unit. To this day, they are closed-mouth about it.

In '67&'68 I was 7-8 years old and my family lived on Adak Island (NAS), Alaska. I was facinated by the P-3's @ A-4s that were stationed there. I would sit on top of "Captain's Hill" and watch these planes take off & land. The P-3's were looking for Russian Subs. The P-3 engines have a very distinct sound that I have never forgotten. I have been working between downtown Dallas and Love Field @ 15 yrs and when the P-3(s) began flying missions out of Love, I knew that a P-3 was taking off before I even saw the aircraft because of that sound. It still brings back great memories of my childhood days on Adak!.
