Sorry, i am not a pilot, I am a kite builder:ok:, but I thought you could help.
I belong to Kitebuilder.com and one of the members posted a question.
"Where are these planes parked" (please scroll to top of page)

The only clue he gave ,was that the photo is of an airport on the west coast of USA.

OK, I know its a long shot ,but anybody know the answer.

Try Moffett Field NAS (Naval Air Station) in CA.

Haven't been there for a while...Great part of the world out there.

Now you've got to tell me what they are!:ok:

1. Google
2. Type "preserved P3 Orion"
3. look for a preserved one.
4. Find Cody Road, NAS Moffett Field, near Google building, Santa Clara, California. Just west of the Harrier on the western ramp.
