Boeing Co. and the Navy have rolled out the new P-8A Poseidon patrol plane.

The Navy is buying 117 Poseidons to replace aging P-3 Orion turboprops. Flight tests are to start later this year, with the first jets in service in 2013.

The Navy plans to base Poseidon squadrons at Whidbey Island Naval Air Station in Washington state, at Jacksonville, Fla., and in Hawaii.
