    P-8 First Flight

    Friday, the P-8A Poseidon made its first flight (h/t NOS) from Renton Field in Washington. The nearly 3 hour flight also included a fly-by of NAS Whidbey Island.

    The Navy plans to eventually order 117 of these, with IOC in 2013.

    Here's hoping the aging P-3's make it that long.
