Centre-right of the photo are two P2V Neptune aircraft. The aircraft furthest from the camera seems to carry the tailcode "BH" and the fuselage code "3". The "BH" tailcode belonged to VP-17 and that unit was located at Iwakuni from 4 Feb 53 until returning to NAS Whidbey Island on 1 August 1953.

However, according to Wiki, VP-17 did not convert to P2Vs until after its return to Whidbey Island.
