Boeing delivers 20th P-8A
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.
