The Lockheed EP-3E ARIES II is the signals reconnaissance version of the P-3C Orion, operated by the United States Navy. There are 11 EP-3Es in the Navy's inventory, the last of which was delivered in 1997. A total of 12 P-3C aircraft were converted to replace older versions of the aircraft, which had been converted in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
There are a bunch of them at this airport. The modifications are done by L3 Communications. This is one of two L3 facilities in the country. They also do the Rivet Joint aircraft.
