The USN's budget proposal, which still requires Congressional approval, calls for the service to buy eight Poseidons in FY2015: down from an original plan to order 16.
from last week's Flight International.

Oh look, a spare 8 on the production line. Now I wonder if they could be leased or hire-purchased??
