Great photo, Joan. Keep posting!!
Summer of 1967 riding along the highway close to Moffett NAS caught the sight of some P3s coming and going, got to stop and enjopy the scene. Did it a number of times for the pure joy of it before moving back to NY. I still miss it. And a few of them re still flying from other bases. Great plane.

I used to build the engines for these, among smaller gas turbines for Bell LongRangers, etc.at the GM plants in Maywood/Indpls., In. It was very intense work,, q/c inspectors over your shoulder. Test cells ran 3 tests altogether then we packed engines In vacuum sealed containers for shipping to gov. or commercial customers. I also build the hydrostats, part of the Abrams MBT.
