"I joined VP8 about March of 1965 ad was discharged in Aug. 1968 you are right the P3A was a good plane. I was a member of crew 8 for the time that I was there. I miss a lot of my ship mates and was trying to look them up."

VP8 at Pax River

I joined VP while it was on deployment to NAS Bermuda out of Pax River in 1969. In the Fall of 1971, 3 months before I was separated, VP8 moved to NAS Brunswick.  I was a member of Crew 3,  the NATOPS Crew.  When I left VP8, they were still flying the first P3As to enter the Fleet.  Other squadrons were receiving P3Cs, but the Tigers were still flying the original P3As. That was one damn good airplane!See More
