Things change.

I haven't flown Maritime for 10 years, but I'm a damn sight more current than PN. Jeez, GPS hadn't even been rolled out when he was a lad.

If the RAF guys that I know have been flying P-8 for the last 6 years tell me it's the best aircraft for the job, I'm happy to believe them.

Given that it is a current platform, how it goes about it's business maybe just too classified for Jacko, me or any of the other pundits on here.

It's certainly going to be a lot more advanced than the 40's airframe with 60's kit that was our last operational MPA.
