P2V-2 Neptune

The P2-V2 did not have the boom out the back like other P-2 Neptunes 9 or like the one parked further to the SE of this lot.

The Lockheed P-2 Neptune (until 1963 the P2V Neptune) was a naval patrol bomber and anti-submarine warfare (ASW) aircraft for the United States Navy between 1947 and 1978, replacing the PV-1 Ventura and PV-2 Harpoon and being replaced in turn with the P-3 Orion. Designed as a land-based aircraft, the Neptune never made a carrier landing, although a small number of aircraft were converted for carrier use and successfully launched. The type was successful in export, seeing service with the armed forces of Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, France, Britain, Japan, the Netherlands and Portugal. The Neptune shares the P-2 designation (albeit under a different designation system) with the Curtiss P-2 Hawk, a much earlier biplane.
