SP's MAI - - AEROSPACE DEVELOPMENTS -

P-8A Po­sei­don air­craft No. 760 took off from a Boe­ing fa­cil­ity in Seat­tle, Wash­ing­ton, on De­cem­ber 9 for de­liv­ery to fleet op­er­a­tors in Jack­sonville, Florida, mark­ing the 20th over­all pro­duc­tion P-8A air­craft for the US Navy.

This Po­sei­don, a game changer for naval avi­a­tion, will join a grow­ing fleet of the new­est US Navy mar­itime pa­trol air­craft. This 20th over­all de­liv­ery will help the US Navy pre­pare the next squadron tran­si­tion to the P-8A from the P-3C Orion. Cur­rently, the sec­ond fully op­er­a­tional P-8A squadron is de­ployed to the 7th Fleet Area of Re­spon­si­bil­ity.
