This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile18935/NP-3D-2.htm>NP-3D 2</a></b><br><br>According to GEC member IBNFE2:<br />
&quot;This is NOT an E-3, nor a C-130. This is an NP-3D that belongs to VX-30 (formerly known as Naval Weapons Test Squadron). I know this because I have hundreds of hours logged in this very aircraft--I could even be sitting in the FE's seat when this was taken (I think my car is in the parking lot!) This aircraft is a highly modified P-3A that has a large rectangular antenna mounted along to top aft fuselage and blends with the vertical stabilizer. I was a Flight Engineer stationed here flying these great airplanes which are used for electro-optical imagery and telemetry gathering missions.&quot;<br><br><img src=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/images/new/080505/515523ADMIN.jpg>
