This chap has been flying round the clock since New Years Day. Here's a few pics of todays departure.

An interesting set of pictures, any idea what it is doing - still looking for Russian submarines lurking off the coast?

Really nice set of shots - good to see something other than a grey P-3 :smile: :clap:

Just one note for the captions - I believe it's VP-4, not VF-4.

That's very true, Al.

If these were taken down South somewhere then there would have beeen a lot more comments by now, even a few mediocre photos of Lakenheath F-15s attract more attention.

Great shots by the way, even the fence looks good. :grin:

Lovely captures, exceptional colours.
There's something about the light and clarity of the air up there which helps produce beautiful images.

Hi, from someone way, way down south, St Mawgan in fact. Those are some of the best P3 photos I believe I have seen, excellant, how I wish aircraft like that were still flying from down here.

Indeed, I can't remember the last time I saw a P3 in Cornwall.
